EAPL Champions

23 March 2019
Many congratulations to Sudbury Hockey Club and their Men's 1st XI who were crowned Champions of East League Division 1 this afternoon and also to the Ladies 2nd XI who gained promotion from East Women's Hockey League Division 4NW(S).  The men's victory will see them compete next season at the highest level they have ever achieved.

20 March 2019
Dustin Melton
Who will ever forget Dustin's
spells of 6 - 9 at Swardeston in 2016 and 5 - 51 at Copdock last season, plus his match winning 69* at Burwell in 2017 - certainly nobody who was there watching.
A major member of the back-to-back EAPL winning sides and a pleasure to have around for 3 years.  Good Luck Dustin.
It is with a mixture of great pleasure and pride, but tinged with sadness that we say "goodbye" to DUSTIN MELTON who will be leaving the club at the end of March to pursue his dream of becoming a professional county cricketer with Derbyshire CCC who have offered him the opportunity to be around the county for training and playing for their 2nd XI during the 2019 season.  Hopefully that will lead to a county debut.  Since joining the club in 2016, Dustin has shown tremendous enthusiasm in everything he has done - coaching, training, bowling, batting, fielding and of course socialising.  A true Talbot in the best tradition, who will always be made welcome when he comes to back to visit the club.
On the plus side, the club can confirm the registration of their overseas for 2019, HENRY SHIPLEY (see Jan 17 article) by the EAPL.  Henry arrives on April 8th and we wish him a very successful and enjoyable season with the Talbots

End of Season Pitch Renovation

Before the ground staff start their end of season pitch renovation of Scarifying, Top Dressing with Loam and Re-Seeding the club has engaged the services of Parkers Pitches to Fraze Mow the square as the first stage of trying to remove the 'hump' that has developed over the years.  This may take a few years to fully achieve and the process involves removing varying levels of soil from the top surface in the middle of the wicket and then building up the ends of the wickets which will also improve drainage.



Date Team Opposition Venue Comp Result Scores
Sat Sept 15 1st XI NORWICH Home EAPL Won SUD 323 - 6*   NOR 200 - 10 
  2nd XI HAVERHILL Away Two Cty 2 Won SUD 250 - 6   HAV 247 - 6*

The perfect end to a fantastic season for the Club arrived at 5:12pm on Saturday when James Poulson held a catch in the deep to claim the final Norwich wicket and seal a 123 run victory, 25 points and the EAPL Championship for the second season in a row.  The scenes and celebrations amongst the players was equalled by the large crowd of spectators, and although the result means that Norwich finish bottom of the league and must play their Semi-Final Play-Off match today, our visitors were full of praise for Sudbury's achievement and very magnanimous in defeat.
Tom Huggins won the toss and elected to bat first and Sudbury's innings followed an almost perfect pattern.  The first wicket didn't fall until 134 shortly after the half-way drinks interval (Huggins 76) and another century partnership was put on for the second wicket before Adam Mansfield was bowled to end his excellent and well deserved innings of 108.  Darren Batch (68) was Adam's partner and he took up the challenge of increasing the tempo of the innings and he was followed by the middle order as the last 7 overs of the innings yielded 99 runs in a final tally of 323.  In reply, Norwich were soon one down but then a fine partnership between Jack Newby (105) and captain Will O'Donnell (48) briefly threatened to challenge Sudbury's huge total.  When Newby reached 78 he became the highest scoring batsman in a season in the history of the EAPL - a fine innings from a fine player - but after O'Donnell had been bowled by Huggins, Newby never found a partner that could hang around for very long and a score card that shows four ducks tells the story as Norwich were all out in 38 overs.  Excellent figures from Billy Moulton-Day (3 - 21) and Tim Johnston (3 - 19) as they took regular wickets - cue the celebrations !!
Not to be outdone, the 2nd XI travelled to already promoted Haverhill and returned victorious by 4 wickets.  Batting first, Haverhill posted a very respectable 247 - 6 with Andy Simmons taking 3 - 68, but stand in skipper Will Shropshire and his side were not content just to play a supporting role in the match and reached their target with 4 balls to spare.  Shropshire (89), Jonny Amos (42*) and Steve Martin (62*) all batted superbly and Martin's three 6's at the end clinched the victory.
So another season comes to an end, and like last year, 2018 will stay in the memory of all those people connected with the club for many years.  Whilst the 1st XI may take the plaudits, it is the whole Club that can savour the success as Chairman Louis Brooks rightly commented on at the Players Website Awards Dinner on Saturday night.  An evening full of high spirits, laughter and emotions.  A fantastic way to end the season for a fantastic club.  Congratulations and Thank You to everyone associated with the club - wInter well and see you next year.
