Damian Ryan and Ben Wright are this week's EDP24/Hansells award winners after spectacular performances for their clubs.

Hemsby captain Ryan, 20, takes the bowling honours after his remarkable figures of nine for 32 against Old Catton in Knights Norfolk League Division Nine.

Ryan had already top scored with 47 in Hemsby's 125 for eight, but his side looked to be heading for defeat when Catton reached 34 without loss.

The skipper then took charge, claiming six wickets in his sixth and seventh overs without conceding a run. He went on to take three more and was only denied a clean sweep when 12-year-old Will Oakey bowled Catton's number 10 batsman.

Fourteen-year-old Wright starred for Topcroft Tigers in their Junior Carter Cup victory over Breckland Bucks.

Despite being up against older players than himself in the under-17 competition, Wright was undaunted and opened the batting for Topcroft. He batted throughout the 36 overs and was finally out for 136 to a spectacular catch on the last ball of the innings.
