HETHERSETT and Tas Valley returned to winning ways in the Norfolk Alliance Division Three when they became only the second team this season to beat leaders Downham A.

Hethersett put a run of disappointing results behind them to beat Downham by three wickets with just four balls to spare. It ended a run of very disappointing results for the team.

Downham batted first and were restricted to 177 all out in 45.1 overs.

Mark Gricks took 4-33. The target looked a modest one, but Hethersett struggled, losing Richard and Matt Ellis with just six on the board.

Solid middle-order batting pulled the game around with opener Carl Puttock (42) being well backed up by Nick Burrett (34), Tim Shelley (24), Mark Gricks (27) and a crackerjack 18 from

Jack Smith.

All-rounders Dave Cosford and Matt Steward then combined to take Hethersett to 179-7 with Steward hitting the winning runs with a boundary with just four balls remaining.

Hethersett &TV II increased their lead at the top of Division Six with an emphatic eight-wicket win over Mattishall. Their rivals were all out for 121 in 39.1 overs with John Curtis taking 5-40 and Rob Scott 2-16. Hethersett had no problems reaching their target with 126-2 from 22.1 overs with Rob Mitchell unbeaten on 54 and Curtis finishing off a fine all-round match with an unbeaten 30.

Hethersett &TVIII went down to Felthorpe by six wickets in the Norfolk League. They scored 176-9 in their 45 overs with Dale Clarke hitting 59 batting at number eight, Ross Jones scoring 29 and Geoff Chappell 25. Felthorpe replied with 178-4 from 32.3 overs with Joe Brett taking 3-42.
