Vauxhall Mallards face a tough ask to get their first win of the season when they travel to reigning Gibbs Denley East Anglian Premier League champions Swardeston tomorrow.

The Ducks fell 20 runs short of victory at home to Sudbury last weekend and face the EAPL's dominant side, who have won the opening two games of their quest for a sixth consecutive title.

Great Witchingham are the other Norfolk team to still have a 100 per cent record after two games, thanks to a seven-wicket home win over Copdock, with Sam Arthurton scoring an unbeaten 128. The Witches travel to Frinton-on-Sea, who suffered a six-wicket defeat at Cambridge Granta last weekend.

Norwich won their first game, with 12 runs to spare at home to Mildenhall, and travel to unbeaten Sudbury looking to build on that. Horsford beat Bury St Edmunds by 116 runs and travel to rock-bottom Burwell looking for more joy.
