Swaffham captain Jasper Payne has been named player of the month for June in the Cecil Amey Opticians Norfolk Alliance.

Payne opens both the batting and bowling for the Division Two leaders and his form with the bat included knocks of 153, 101 and an unbeaten 87 last month.

Swaffham won all five of their league games in June, starting with a vital five-wicket home win over title rivals in, with Payne’s 50 contributing to the success.

His high score of 153 came during a 110-run win at Great Melton, from 115 balls, featuring 14 fours and seven sixes. His 101 came in a seven-wicket win at Ashmanhaugh & Barton Wanderers.

Swaffham are looking to consolidate their position at the top of Division Two – currently leading Martham by 15 points – and gain promotion to Division One for the first time in the club’s history. They kick-off the remaining six games away to mid-table Norwich seconds on Saturday.
