Swardeston and Mallards set for fourth meeting
Swardeston, Vauxhall Mallards, Garboldisham and Mattishall will attempt to join Sprowston and Norwich in the semi-finals of the Carter Cup this Sunday.
Following last Saturday's league clash, Swardeston and Mallards meet for the second weekend running, this time at The Common. Swardeston currently hold the upper hand in the battle of Norfolk's premier clubs, having won the league match at Brundall to follow up their EAPL Twenty20 victory last week, although Mallards won the ECB National Club Championship showdown earlier in the season.
A side from below the Alliance Premier Division is guaranteed to be in the last four, as Division One high fliers Mattishall travel to Division Three leaders Garboldisham.
In last weekend's ties, Norwich showed they have lost none of their top flight quality by knocking EAPL side Great Witchingham out of the competition.
Ashley Watson hammered 117no in Norwich's 254 for seven, before Witchingham were bowled out for 185 in the 55th over, skipper James Spelman top scoring with 49.
