Despite illness and injury depleting the squad on the week of the event, Norfolk Men were only two rubber away from gaining promotion to Group 1 of the Aegon Winter County Cup over weekend 25/26th November.

In the week leading upto the event skipper Nicky Crawley suffered a bout of flu, Tom Spinks injury and Dan Wynne managed to play despite suffering from vertigo!

A superb effort by all enabled the team to record an opening day victory against Nottinghamshire winning 7-2. On day 2 they suffered a 3-6 defeat against Cheshire before beating the eventual group winners Lancashire 6-3 on the final day.

Norfolk Men’s Team: Nicky Crawley, Dan Wynne, Johnnie Wynne, Richard Bloomfield, Barry Fulcher, Kris Jenkins, Tom Hunter, Will Davies, Alex Mcnaughton
