A First for Suffolk Cricket as Woodbridge Siblings Captain Teams on the Same Day

8 Jun 18

Probably a first for Suffolk Cricket: siblings Daniel and Katie Norman, Woodbridge School Year 10 & 8 respectively, both captaining Suffolk Cricket age groups on the same day and both scoring 50s!

Daniel faced arguably the country’s leading team in Middlesex at Woodbridge School in a 50 over Royal London Cup fixture: Daniel captained, was wicket keeper and number 6 batsman. He steered Suffolk from 21 for 4 and 27 for 5 to a respectable 133 all out scoring exactly 50, though his efforts proved in vain as unfortunately Middlesex won by 9 wickets. He also scored a 50 last year against Middlesex at Woodbridge School. Very few batsmen achieve the feat of back-to-back 50s against Middlesex who boast boys from some of the top cricketing schools in the country.

Katie also captained the girls’ U13 Suffolk team who faired a somewhat better!  Her team scored 237-8 off 35 overs with Katie hitting a superb 52 not out, batting at number 6.  She then followed this up with 2 wickets when bowling as Suffolk dismissed their opponents Hertfordshire for 77 to earn a comprehensive victory.
