Norfolk's men began County Week with a 5-4 win over a strong Berkshire team at Cromer Lawn Tennis & Squash Club.

Leading 2-1 and 4-2 after the opening rounds, Norfolk needed just one match from the remaining three to clinch victory.

Harry Weeds and Richard Bloomfield delivered the goods, completing a perfect day as a pair and sealing a 5-4 win to get Norfolk off to the ideal start in Group Two of the Aegon Summer County Cup.

Weeds and Bloomfield came through a tight match early on and James Auckland and Barry Fulcher added the second rubber. Debutant Tom Fisher replaced an injured Dan Wynne to partner Nicky Crawley but the pair were unable to add to the Norfolk total.

The top two pairs supplied another win each before Weeds and Bloomfield secured the vital fifth rubber.
