CHAMPAGNE MOMENT: Sudbury Cricket Club celebrate their title success at the weekend, sealed with a game to spare after beating Mildenhall

Sudbury Cricket Club are celebrating a fourth league title in the last 11 years — but captain Darren Batch has warned it will not mean half as much if they were to let promotion slip through their fingers.

An impressive eight-wicket success at home to Mildenhall, who had been in the title hunt themselves, has ensured The Talbots are on the cusp of a return to the East Anglian Premier League, with the Two Counties Championship taking its turn in sending its winner straight through to host the play-off final this year.

And Batch will put a lid on the celebrations to ensure all concentration is on completing the job when the winners of this weekend’s semi-final between Fakenham and Godmanchester.

“Our aim was to win this league and I have said to the boys they should be proud,” said Batch. “But our aim at the start of the season was to get promoted and obviously we will have a play-off a week on Saturday and we still need to be practising hard and preparing for that, as that was the overall aim.”
