Will Pillinger scored 82 as Bircham chased down Sandringham’s 170 for 5 for a seven-wicket win to stay top of Division One.

Terrington went second after a three-wicket win against Hospital who were dimissed for 80. Anish Thomas gave Terrington a fright taking 4-16. Downham Town B moved out of the relegation zone with an 18-run victory against Long Sutton. Gul Khan scored 61 as Downham posted 143 with Paul Edgeller taking 4 for 31. Sutton reached 125 for 7.

Richard Southgate (104) scored his second century of the season for Castle Rising as they set their ground sharing tenants 214 for victory. 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.

With Heacham not playing, Hillington A closed the gap on the Division Three leaders to a point. Damion Twiddy took 5 for 22 as Hillington A were dismissed for just 93 before bowling Snettisham A out for 48. Robbie Clarke took 5 for 17 in Beetley’s eight-wicket win over Denver A, who were dismissed for 81. Gary Burton took 6 for 18 as Long Sutton A bowled Holt out for 91. Aaron John hit an unbeaten 65 for a five wicket-victory.

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.
