Horsford, Hingham, Lowestoft and Thornham head Level Four

Date Published: 16 July 2016

Well, finally the sun shone, and many of us were able to put the last few weeks’ frustration behind us. In
Division 1 Sandringham had a successful jaunt across the County to beat Caister, unfortunately Gt
Yarmouth were unable to replicate that feat, going down at Denver (Paul Morton 75, Dan Harper 74).
Snettisham continue to demonstrate why they have been so close to promotion to the NCA in the last
few years, beating Cringleford Lodge with Damien Twiddy taking 7-28. Mark English’ 50no was enough
to see Saxlingham to victory at Felthorpe and 70’s for Wayne Goreham and Chris Lambert meant Kirkley
and Belton beat Blundeston.
Reepham and Salles Harry Leggoe took 5-39 as they beat Castle Acre in Division 2West, Jahy Chima with
119no and Matt Taylor with 129no proved far too much for Gooderstone as Castle Rising turned on the
style, further enhanced by Mahesh Sannakki taking 4-31. Heacham’s Adam Darlow made 77 as they
overcame North Elmham for who Ed Maule made 55, and Northwold’s Ady Seymore made 58 against
Garboldiham B. In 2East, 70’s for Steve Clarke, Nick Cristwood and Aslam Khan Mohamed helped Melton
B see off Norwich Bystanders, Eaton’s Nigel Massingham took 5-30 as they went down to Gillingham and
70’s for Chris Butler and James Sneddon of Ketteringham Hall were not enough to see off a determined
Rollesby outfit. Harry Jones with 52 and Sri Tenjarla with 63 was not enough as Draytons Phil Wright 77,
and Vish Ready 4-35 saw Drayton home.
In Level 3 West Aaron Riseborough (Holt) made 77 and Dan Greeves took 4-15 as they lost to Beeston
for whom Howard Bailey made 58 and Matt Wright took 4-14. Adam Wards 66 for Bircham A eclipsed
Paul Bridges 65 as Kings Lynn Hospital still search for that first win. Saham Toney A’s Martin Wood was
happy with his 65, but not so happy as81no for Gary Hinchliffe saw Beetley take the spoils.
Narborough’s win was based around Matt Coe’s 62 and Dan King’s 4-15, although 56 for Richard Hurst
was some consolation for Sandringham A. Swanton Morley had a good day, 98no for James Warne, 52
for Jacob Seed and 4-33 for George Boldero helped them to a victory over Dersingham A (Ollie
Southgate 53). In 3 Central Randolf Lofthouse made 62as Old Buckenham B slipped to defeat ahainst
Hardingham A (Mark Eastman 61). After coming close a couple of times Julian Dismore finally made 100
as Felthorpe held on to beat Hethersett and Tas Valley B, Ashish Shah took 4-46. Reepham and Salle A
father and son, Joe and Will Hollis both made 77 and Rajiv Chaudray 55 as they beat New Buckenham. In
3 East John Browne made 57 as Coltishall lost to Acle A, Rob Bingham made 80no as Aylsham St Giles
beat Kirkley and Belton A and Halvergate’s James Howley made 77 and Graham Harrop took 5-30 againt
Bungay A.
In level 4 North East Ashmanhaigh and Barton Wanderers B lost to Colney despite 65 from Jack
Robertson. Dan Hornigold took 4-46 as Overstrand A beat close rivals Happisburgh A and Dave Mason
(97no) and Ollie Smith (55no) helped Horsford C to victory over Aldborough (Kevin Bacon 86). In 4 North
West Stuart Olley’s 95no for Castle Rising A was nearly matched by 88no for Louie Mitchell as
Gooderstone got home victorious. Swaffhams Andy Dale and Joseph Lenderou enjoyed a 230 run
unbeaten partnership scoring 144no and 68no respectively as Swaffham beat Mundford. Thornham’s
Dickie Sayers made 65 as they march on at the top of the table. Southwold A’s Jack Fuller took 8-32 in
their victory in Level 4 South East. Archie Smith made 67no for Martham A as they lost to Ketteringham
Hall A (Ben Gibbins 81). Whilst in Level 4 South West Josh Hall’s 52 for North Elmham A was beaten by
Dereham B’s Stewart Allen with 84. Chris Elliott (52) and evergreen Steve Pheonix (65) meant Gt Melton
C had a decent win against Diss B (Andy Weston 4-24). Steve Guy with 76 and Jamie Edwards with 4-24
helped Hingham see off Hardingham B and Mellis had a decent win thanks mainly to 4-21 from Neil
