Caister turn giant killers

IN the Mid Norfolk League, a couple of startling results in the semi-finals of the Challenge Cup last Sunday saw Swardeston, who seemed to be sweeping it all this season succumb to a very determined Anglian's team by two wickets.

IN the Mid Norfolk League, a couple of startling results in the semi-finals of the Challenge Cup last Sunday saw Swardeston, who seemed to be sweeping it all this season succumb to a very determined Anglian's team by two wickets.

It also seems that giant killing feats become habit-forming as Caister, who languish in the fourth division, met and defeated Narborough, a premiership side, also with an impressive cup pedigree, by seven runs. Caister also walked away with the Broke Cup last year.

This sets up an intriguing final to be played at Sprowston CC on August 25, Bank Holiday Monday between the Anglians and Caister for the Challenge Cup.

Results: Swardeston146-10 Anglians 149-8; Caister 171-4 Narborough 164-9.

On the same day, August 25, the final of the Broke Cup will also be played at Sprowston CC between Ashmanahugh and Great Witchingham. Both matches start at 1.30pm.
