Cricket season is underway
Last weekend saw the first round of league games for all 3 teams with good wins for the 1sts and 3rds and an encouraging performance for the 2nds.
In the Premier league the 1st team struggled to post 131 against a strong Brooke bowling attack but then fought back magnificently to bowl the visitors out for 94 with Mark Williamson the pick of the bowlers with 4 wickets.
In their game the 2nds were up against newcomers Hockwold (from the West Norfolk League) and were right to expect a tough match. Good bowling had restricted the home team to 81 from the first 30 overs but with wickets in hand Hockwold skipper Bland personally plundered 70 from the last 10 or so overs to take them to 223. In reply the 2’s made 151 with Andy Horobin making 49 and Jodie Sparrow and Jamie Young putting on 28 for the last wicket to gain 2 additional batting points.
In the Norfolk league the 3rds played local rivals Mellis and took a comfortable 6 wicket win. Chasing 117 for victory after Will Ward had taken 4 Mellis wickets Lewis Taylor led the reply with a superb 70 to make the game safe before the rains came.
This weekend see the 1sts away at Cromer, 2nds at home against Happisburgh, and the 3rds away at Hingham.
