ROFFEY’S fine run in the ECB National Cup came to an end at the hands of Cambridge Granta on Sunday.

Batting first, visiting Cambridge amassed a big 278-6 total from their 45 overs, and it proved too much to chase as Roffey were bowled out for 193 in 37.1 overs despite skipper Mike Norris scoring 62 from 61 balls.

Still Roffey can be deeply proud of their efforts as the sole Sussex representative in the last 16 of the national competition, but it is East Anglian Premier League Cambridge Granta who go through to the quarter-finals.
