Happy Jack after Norfolk wins

Norfolk County Team Manager Jack Pye said that he was a happy man again after both Norfolk Premier and Norfolk “A” won their I.C.C Quarter-Final ties. Norfolk Premier beat Cheshire 24-16 while Norfolk “A” overcame Kent “A” by 21-19 in an incredibly tight match. Norfolk Premier singles players Chris Mann & Trevor Brown both had wins against Paul Clegg but Matty Worden inflicted damage on Norfolk as he won both his games for Cheshire. Norfolk's pairs were not to be denied though as they collected all ten points with Debbie Sparham & Jack Pye and Neil Davidson & Gary Best in super form. Triples skip AJ Brown played a last wood winner in his first game and his triple remains unbeaten so far this season. Norfolk's fours had a good first session to put Norfolk on the front foot early on. Norfolk "A" singles players Sid Burton and Chloe Suffolk did well to collect the bonus points as Chloe fought back from 13-6 down to lose her second game by just one shot while a superb win for Sid clinched the all important bonus points. Only one point was dropped in the pairs as Mike Smail & John Jeffery won both their games and David Blundell & Kacy Suffolk unbeaten with a win and a draw. The second session of triples was where the match was ultimately decided. Norfolk "A" went into the final session needing just one win across the four mats but Kent "A" looked as if they could steal a win with only one mat looking like it could go Norfolk's way. Robin Amos's triple needed two shots to win their match on the last end and he was four shots down. To the relief of Norfolk he killed the jack to force a replay of the end. On the vital replayed end Robin again found himself down but played a super shot to remove Kent's bowl and got movement on the jack to leave Norfolk holding one shot with a measure for second. The measure went Norfolk's way and they could begin to celebrate a hard earned victory. Norfolk Premier will face Devon in the semi-finals while Norfolk “A” will play Hampshire, both games will be played on the 3rd March.
