BEESTON CRICKET CLUB
The club has had a mixed year with the first team finishing 4th in Division 3 West and the second team finishing sixth in Division 4 South West of the Norfolk cricket league. With the club encouraging the young players the first team went into every game with at least 3 players under the age of 18 , whilst the second team played between 5 and 6, this bodes well for the clubs future with several other local clubs struggling to survive due to lack of players. There has been some good bowling performances by both old and young players with the first teams Adie Greef taking 35 wickets (includes three five wicket hauls) and 16 year old Callum Anderson taking 26 for the season, 14 year old Liam Walls 5-2-12-5 against Sandringham A, Phil Blackfords 8-3-10-7 against Dereham B, Batting Freddie Stewards 102, Martin Walls 87, Adie Parke”s 70 not out,
