Hunts have made a good start to the National Veterans Over 50s Cup with two wins from their opening three matches.

Win number two arrived at Bretton Gate this week (May 30) when Norfolk were routed by 71 runs.

Captain Bob Milne (Peterborough Town) batted throughout Hunts’ 45 overs for 77 not out, while Steve Best (Barnack) gave the innings late impetus by striking three sixes in his 64-ball 62 not out.

Hunts closed on 198-3 before despatching Norfolk for 127. Pete Waughman (Houghton & Wyton) took 4-14 with Richard Ewing (Bharat Sports) 2-18 bowling particularly well.

Hunts lost their opening game of the season to Suffolk, but then beat Northants easily.
