Seniors' cricket in Old Buckenham

Last over thriller
You could have been on Old Buckenham Green admiring the noisy motorbikes or you could have been enjoying a pleasant evening at the village cricket ground watching an exciting cricket match between Norfolk and Suffolk.

Play started early afternoon, Suffolk batted first and scored 199 runs in their 45 overs.

The teams were the over sixties first teams for both counties. 
Play went on into the early evening with long shadows reaching across the ground.
Wickets tumbled as Norfolk tried to push along the scoring rate.
Into the last over and there were still runs to get.
Just a couple of balls left when Norfolk finally clinched victory.
There are plenty of matches to watch during August. A list of them was given in the last village newsletter.Why not visit the ground, you will be most welcome.
