Woolpit batted first, no-one seemed to know why, and lost a couple of early wickets as Sykes’s (3 for 9) […]

Sudbury II vs Brockley

Brockley, generously sponsored by A14 Tyres, travelled from their simple village without so much as a Post Office to the bright lights of Sudbury with its railway station, three banks AND a Greggs!

Brockley vs Brightlingsea

Brockley, sponsored by UberWebDesign, travelled to long time village rivals Woolpit on the back of a convincing defeat to Sudbury.
