Diss A put on a good all-round display against Dereham A with skipper Tim Courridge hitting

On winning the toss, Courridge inserted Dereham A on a dry track that belied the overhead conditions, with showers drifting over at regular intervals.

Robbie West (12-4-30-1) and Jack Bell (12-4-20-0) opened the bowling and set the tone for the Dereham innings.

With only 16 on the board the first wicket fell in the 10th over with a great run out by Alex Blakely picking up and knocking down the stumps with Mabee (9) well short.

West picked up the second wicket having West (14) caught behind by keeper Jamie Allen, there then followed a fifty partnership between Banyard (63no) and Henman (20) before Allen took his second catch behind off the bowling of debutant Chaz Sizeland (11-2-28-1).

This brought Dereham skipper Crisp to the wicket but he was soon to return after sending a Courridge (7-3-15-1) ball high into the sky, Gareth Kilian retreated and took the steepling catch to the delight of his team mates.

No more wickets fell but the score was still only creeping along and Dereham managed to get up to 125-4 at the end of their 46 overs.

A circumspect start by Craig Barker and David Williman resulted in 13 from first seven overs before Barker (4) played on a Crisp (9-1-33-1) delivery, an in-form Courridge entered the fray and with the score at 36 from 13 overs a change of bowler proved to be the ignition switch with the skipper being particularly hard on anything short or wide.

Clarke (2-0-36-0) and Mabee (2-0-21-0) were the main victims and this brought up his 50.

With this rapid run increase it didn't take long to knock off the score needed with Courridge on 89no and Williman on 22no.

This, apart from a couple of dropped catches, was a good all-round display to take to Rocklands next week.
