Frankly Digital Norfolk Alliance: Narborough are Yorked

15:32 14 May 2012

Bungay’s Tom Yorke led a powerful assault on the Narborough bowling with an unbeaten 107.

Will Lewis weighed in with 79 as Bungay posted a daunting looking 243-3 before dismissing their West Norfolk opponents for 146 in the Division Four encounter.

Ryan Woods (70) and Mark Wyatt (55) dominated Mundford’s 211-8 total but they were foiled as Kirkley and Lowestoft Railway clung on at 159-9.

Thetford were also thwarted by the tailenders as Great Melton A reached 73-8 having been set a 185 target. Thetford’s innings featured an unbeaten 75 from Ryan Conroy and 56 from Neil Lockwood.

Ben Clarke hit 78 as Cromer A made a game but ultimately vain bid to pass a 202 victory target set by Winterton. Great Witchingham A enjoyed a win, Barney Goodrum hitting a half century and Michael Seago bagging 5 for 23 in an 85-run win over Sheringham.

Chris Sparkes scored over half of Hardingham’s runs with an unbeaten 84 but could not prevent defeat against Garboldisham. North Runcton A’s Jack Major took four wickets and Nick Henry contributed an unbeaten 86 to help earn a winning draw against Old Buckenham A.

In Divison Six Saxlingham A’s Mark English posted an unbeaten century and there were half-centuries for Topcroft A’s Peter Askew and Thetford A’s Dave Newey.

Diss withstood a determined fightback from Holt to win the annual clash for the Harrison Cup 38-28 at Mackenders. Diss romped into a 24-0 lead before Holt’s Ollie Wastnage got a great try on the stroke of half-time. He got another early in the second with a fine solo effort, using his pace to outstrip the Diss defence. Ashley Woods then took a quick tap penalty to crash over under a pile of bodies before Rob Gray bulldozed his way through to give Holt a four point lead. Diss then put a stranglehold on the game to get a deserved win. Tom Harrison led out Holt’s team while his father Chris presented Diss with the trophy.
