Struggling Norfolk not clicking - George Walker

Walker has yet to record a win since becoming Norfolk captain in the winter

Norfolk captain George Walker has admitted being frustrated at his side's lack of cohesion.

They were dumped out of the Minor Counties Knockout Trophy following a 57-run defeat by Suffolk on Sunday.

"We're not all clicking together which is quite frustrating," he told BBC Radio Norfolk.

"Some days we're bowling well, other days we're bowling well but not all together, we're missing something and it was a frustrating day."

Suffolk recorded 263 for four in their 50 overs at Manor Park, which included a flurry of 144 runs in the final 10 overs.

Norfolk managed just 206 all-out in reply on their home pitch, a result which makes it impossible for Walker's men to progress from group four of the competition after losing all three of their games so far.

They travel to Bracebridge Heath to face Lincolnshire this weekend before getting their three-day campaign underway a week later against Northumberland.

"We won't be going there [Lincolnshire] thinking it's a dead rubber, we've got personal pride to play for," added 27-year-old Walker.

"I think everyone will want to do well and get a win, especially if it prevents Lincolnshire from going through, that's an added incentive.

"It's another day of play for us lads to gel together and fingers crossed we can get our first win.

"The only thing I'm winning at the minute is the toss."
