Carl Rogers’ son Will is a chip off the old block

Carl Rogers is enjoying a fantastic season with Great Witchingham - and his 12-year-old son is proving a chip off the old block.

While former Norfolk skipper Carl was hitting 85 in Witchingham's EAPL victory at Vauxhall Mallards on Saturday, his son Will was busy notching his second successive half-century for the club's third team in Norfolk League Division Eight.

Having made 52no the week before, Rogers jnr fired 64 for Great Witchingham B as they lost by 31 runs at Blundeston A.

The battle to finish top of the family averages promises to be a tight race - Carl currently stands on 81.00, while Will boasts a healthy league average of 62.50, having also played twice this year for the second team in Norfolk Alliance Division Three.
