Knights Norfolk League: Hethersett & Tas Valley made sure of a Norfolk League championship and promotion double on Saturday.

The first team wrapped up the Division Two title with a nailbiting win at Shipdham. Richard Ellis made 75no and his brother, Matt, hit 74 as Hethersett just managed to defend a total of 199, winning by two runs.

The second team enjoyed a slightly more comfortable ride as they clinched the Division Seven crown. John Nash and Russell Cooper each took three wickets and Dave Elverson made 32 in their five-wicket win over Felthorpe.

In Division One, Great Witchingham A remain in the runners-up spot which could yet gain them a place in the Alliance if champions Hales have their appeal turned down after their application for promotion was rejected.

R Sparkes took four for 27 in Great Yarmouth's eight-wicket win at Mattishall in Division Three.

Vauxhall Mallards B's P Wilkins (104no) and D Straw (81) added 141 for the third wicket as they beat Kirkley & Lowestoft Railway A by 111 runs in Division Four. S Cadge claimed five for 23 for Mallards.
