The Archant cricket roll of honour has been running all summer in our weekly titles, featuring the best few performances of each week in each circulation area.

The beauty of this feature is that it can be won by players of any age and any level in a bona fide competition - from schoolboys to professionals.

The winners this year included Andy Wright (Hingham A) who hit 197 runs in late May during Hingham A's first win of the season in Norfolk League Division Eight. He hit 13 sixes and 14 fours in helping to beat Bacton Sabres.

Winners will receive, through the post, a special certificate to mark their achievements.

Richard Willner, Archant Norfolk Head of Sport, said: 'Congratulations to all the winners for their exceptional performances.

'There is something particularly satisfying in being able to highlight the type of guy who has been doing his very best for his home village or town for many years without making it into the 'big time'.

'That unsung hero deserves his moment of glory every bit as much as someone whose prowess at his chosen discipline gets far wider recognition. It's a moment to cherish.'
