Suffolk’s hopes of progress in this season’s Unicorns Trophy are over.

In today’s quarter-final clash against Berkshire at the Falkland Cricket Club, in Newbury, Suffolk were beaten by 65 runs after the home side made 308-9 off their 50 overs.

Suffolk were all out for 244.

The visitors had already been dealt a triple blow ahead of the clash before a ball had even been bowled, as they were missing three of their top stars in Matt Wareing, Matt Salisbury and Matt Hunt.

The home side, batting first, were indebted to Richard Morris, one of many Henley players in their team, as he struck a fine 125, after being dropped on 94.

It was a competitive target and one Suffolk never really threatened after they lost their fourth wicket with 141 on the scoreboard.

Michael Comber, who had taken four wickets in the home innings, top-scored for Suffolk with the bat (63). But Euan Woods cleared up the Suffolk tail.
