Mallards aim to maintain perfect run

Vauxhall Mallards will target a third successive maximum points victory when Clacton visit Brundall tomorrow.

Paul Bradshaw's side have made an excellent start to the season, with a convincing win against Norwich followed last weekend by victory over champions Cambridge Granta.

South African Glen Addicott has made a big impression so far, with scores of 100 and 52, keeping his place in the side last week despite the arrival of Namibian international Gerrie Snyman, who played for the second team in the Alliance.

Saffron Walden are the other side with a 100pc winning record this term and tomorrow they host Great Witchingham.

James Spelman's Witches beat Sudbury last weekend with a century from Sam Arthurton and they could have a new string to their bowling bow tomorrow, following the arrival of South African Andrew Dyer. The left-arm seamer qualifies to play for the first team as a British passport player and is likely to open the bowling alongside New Zealander Ryan McCone, who bagged a five-wicket haul last weekend.
