Bradman would have approved

CRICKET: Surely the most successful cricketer in the Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Championship this year must be Steve Witham from Division Five side Cavendish Wanderers.

SURELY the most successful cricketer in the Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Championship this year must be Steve Witham from Division Five side Cavendish Wanderers.

He has already notched one double century plus three hundreds and against Abberton earlier in the season struck six sixes in an over.

Currently out injured following a back injury sustained while playing golf, big-hitter Witham is modest about his achievements.

"I have no idea what my batting average is, but I am told I have scored more than 700 league runs this year and I think I have been out seven times," he said.

That gives him an average of more than 100. Even Donald Bradman could not achieve that!

Sudbury, who play in Division One of the Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Championship, has invested £50,000 in the extension, which includes a new area for scorers, who are linked electronically to a new £5,000 scoreboard on the opposite side of the ground.

The Friars Street pavilion scheme, which has received grant support from Babergh, Sport England, Sudbury Town Council and the Sudbury and Cornard Community Energy Project, also includes a new patio and access for disabled, with special toilet and shower and a changing room for umpires.

The whole project has been completed within a year.
