Norwich City striker swaps football for batting

Will Luke

Chris Sutton, the former Norwich City striker, struck a "bubbling" fifty for Sheringham against East Harling last week.

Sutton - who is being linked with a return to the Canaries - hit 74 in Sheringham's 206-8, with Ben Etheridge picking up three wickets.

But Sheringham could not complete an outright victory as East Harling reached 117-8 in reply.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Will Luke
Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years. In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
