Roshan Samarathunga took 5 for 12 to help bowl out Hayley East Anglia for 106. An unbeaten partnership of 112 between Matt Herbert (52no) and Mark Utteridge (51no) gave Snettisham a seven-wicket victory over Denver as they chased down 137.

In Division Two Chris Upton top-scored 85 in Swaffham A’s 226 for 6. Opener Adam Askew hit 75 for Hockwold who lost by 35 runs with Jordan Grass taking 4 for 41. The defeat knocked Hockwold off the top as Jason Fryett top-scored with 52 as Castle Acre beat Gooderstone by four wickets. Peter O’Connor scored 63 as Thornham reached 174 for 8. Narborough A lost their last wicket in the 32nd over with the score on 143. Northwold reached 151 for 7 but Fakenham A won by 5 wickets.

After two weeks of being unable to raise a team, Northwold A recorded their first Division Four win of the season. Despite only having eight players, Ted Fuller (55), D Lavender (87) and A Rust (57) helped them post a formidable 233 for 5. Beeston A could only manage 60 in reply. After Gooderstone A were dismissed for 22 Gayton completed a quickfire 10-wicket win.

DISS TOWN U9 entertained league leaders Drayton with goalkeeper Lewis Allen having an outstanding game. Diss got off to a good start with an early goal from Christoher Lymbery after some fine midfield play from Caleb Palmer and Max Bowen. Drayton were pressing hard to get the equaliser, but were met with some good defensive play from Liam Hamling and Dylan Wilby. Louis Land was battling well in midfield with Thomas Lymbery working hard up front to keep possession. William Frary’s fine running from midfield helped take the pressure off the Diss defence. After several great saves from Lewis Allen Diss broke away ending with a fine strike from Benjamin Cohodar coming off the post. Drayton finally got the equaliser in the last minute of the game. Final Score 1-1.
