Two batsmen who hit their maiden centuries share the honours in this week's EDP24/Hansells Cricket Awards.

Alex Browne, 21, of Saxlingham A and Lowestoft Town B 14-year-old Billy Brice reached three figures for the first time to help their sides to convincing victories.

Browne hit 144 in a fourth wicket partnership of 198 with Phil Bartram, who made 57. His innings included 16 fours and five sixes and helped Saxlingham recover from a precarious 19 for three to win at Aylsham St Giles in Knights Norfolk League Division Five.

Brice, who is also captain of Lowestoft U15s, hit 115 as his side beat North Elmham to stay top of Knights Norfolk League Division 10. His achievement also meant he beat his brother, 16-year-old first team player Tom, to the century mark.
