Swardeston in Carter Cup action again

Swardeston face a second successive weekend of Carter Cup action as they travel to Norwich in the semi-finals on Sunday.

Mark Thomas' side narrowly overcame holders Vauxhall Mallards last Sunday, but they head to Postwick without Norfolk trio Stephen Gray, George Walker and Michael Eccles, who are playing for the county at Manor Park. The tie is a repeat of the 2009 final, which Swardeston won by six wickets.

The second semi-final, between Sprowston and Garboldisham, will take place next Sunday as Sprowston are in NACO Cup semi-final action this weekend.

They are away at North Runcton, who beat Saham Toney by eight wickets in their quarter-final last weekend. Downham host Old Buckenham in the other NACO semi-final on Sunday.
