A day to remember for Jack

THERE are a few clubs in Suffolk who maintain active fixture lists of friendly matches.

One of them is Nacton, who determinedly keep up their friendlies although they also play in the Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Championship and the MSC Suffolk Alliance.

One of their regular matches is against Twinstead, near Sudbury, and 20-year-old Jack Coomber will never forget this year’s match.

It was rain-affected and ended as a draw but not before Coomber had scored his maiden century and also claimed a hat-trick.

Coomber scored 104 not out from just 60 balls as Nacton declared at 140 for three from 25 overs when an early tea was taken. In the Twinstead reply Coomber grabbed four for 17 off three overs, including his hat-trick, as they reached 104 for seven from their 25 overs.
