Derwent Valley and Highlands cricket results – Week 11

THIS week saw a number of showdowns between our local teams in the Southern Cricket Association. There was Redcaps v Bucks, Redcaps v Molesworth and Gretna v Molesworth, all of which had the potential to highlight some really good local cricket. Lets see how it all panned out.

NEW NORFOLK – 1st grade 50-Over format: New Norfolk 9/230 (40 overs) lost to Claremont 8/252 (40 overs).
