Sudbury successfully retained their Gibbs Denley East Anglian Premier League title, by the narrowest of margins, following a final-day victory over lowly Norwich by 123 runs on Saturday.

Having won the EAPL championship for the first time in their history last year, Sudbury managed to pip former winners Swardeston (champions from 2012 to 2016) by just one point, after all 22 matches.

Swardeston beat Horsford by 45 runs at The Common, but Sudbury’s victory at home to Norwich ensured that the Norfolk club could not catch them.

Furthermore, Sudbury did Suffolk neighbours Bury St Edmunds a terrific favour, because their defeat of Norwich enabled Bury to scramble off bottom spot at the death.

Boasted by a terrific unbeaten century from Murray Commins, Bury thrashed Frinton by 10 wickets at Ashlyns Road to finish nine points clear of Norwich, and so avoid the necessity of entering the play-off phase.
