Swardeston aim for repeat
East Anglian Premier League leaders Swardeston will attempt to complete their first double of the season when they welcome Burwell to The Common tomorrow.
The two sides met on the opening day, when a century from Jaden Hatwell, pictured, and a four-wicket return from George Walker handed the Norfolk club a 61-run victory. Swardeston had not been top since then, until last weekend's nail-biting one-wicket win over Norwich sent them 13 points clear.
The team they replaced at the summit, Horsford, will look to regroup after last Saturday's humbling against Vauxhall Mallards at Brundall, but if they are to have a chance of regaining top spot they will have to break their duck of wins away from home this season when they travel to Cambridge Granta.
Mallards remain very much in the title race, 20 points behind Swardeston and they travel to Ingham to face Norwich.
Great Witchingham are level on points with Mallards, but having led the table for a four-week spell, there have been signs in recent weeks of the dreaded mid-season stutter which skipper James Spelman was determined to avoid. The Witches have drawn two and lost one of their last three games and will hope to get back on the winning trail when Bury St Edmunds visit Walcis Park.
