Martin Berry of Norfolk & Chance reports:

Having been plagued by poor attendance and having only started with eight players three times this season, a real fear of being well short of players on an England football night caused the team whips to pull out all the stops and Norfolk & Chance turned up eleven strong to play Stan Foley’s bunch of Fives.

Batting first, Nayan and Najum put on 81 between them. Overseas player Ross impressed all with a dramatic 51 not out (8 fours, 2 sixes) and Freddie retired on 17 to allow Brad a crack but there were simply not enough overs for Brad to show his true worth.

A little worried about slow play, numerous field changes and the possibility that Fives would play the bad light card, Norfolk & Chance unleashed their celebrated very slow bowling attack which sliced through the Fives batting order.

Casey looked very strong with the bat scoring 14 of three balls only to be caught of a very promising hit and Bilal put on a well earned 16 runs before being dismissed by the sort of catch that Norfolk and Chance players do not usually make.

Elated by the average performance, Norfolk and chance retired to the pub for the end of the football and much talk about the possibility of silverware, the next three rounds of the VPCCL cup and even tactics for the final against Sky or Traditional Corsairs
