Swardeston go marching on as below-par Witches have a day to forget

Swardeston reeled off a fifth straight win in the East Anglian Premier League on Saturday as rivals Great Witchingham saw their perfect start to the campaign come to an abrupt halt.

The defending champions didn’t have things all their own way against visitors Cambridge Granta but, as is so often the case, they did what they had to do with both bat and ball to keep flying high at the top.

It was a different story for the Witches, however, with Sam Arthurton’s side having a real off day at fellow high-flyers Sudbury to end up on the wrong end of a 10-wicket drubbing.

After being asked to bat first at The Common, Swardeston produced a typically solid effort to get up to 243-8 in their 50 overs,

Opener Jason Reynolds celebrated his Norfolk call-up with a top score of 68 while a series of good contributions down the order, including an unbeaten 27 in 19 balls from skipper Mark Thomas, ensured the hosts had a decent total to defend.

A fine partnership of 94 for the sixth wicket between Jonathan Atkinson and Lewis Hill helped Granta make a game of it but it was all over bar the shouting when they lost four wickets with the score on 158. Granta were eventually all out for 176 with Joe Gatting and Tom Oxley both taking three wickets.

Witchingham were put in on a difficult wicket at Sudbury and the first-wicket partnership of 34 between Arthurton and James Spelman proved to be the biggest of a really disappointing effort.

Too many players gave their wickets away with poor shots as the visitors were all out for just 121 in the 48th over.

It was a different story after lunch as Tom Mansfield and Tom Huggins came out full of intent to knock off the runs before the rain came. They set about the Witchingham attack with some fine stroke play, particularly from former Suffolk skipper Huggins who ended up with 73 not out from 83 balls, including 11 fours and three sixes.

Dark clouds had been gathering for some time and when Huggins hit the winning runs in the 23rd over the rain started to fall heavily and the players had to run from the field.

Witchingham will certainly need to buck their ideas up for their next game, with Swardeston visiting Walcis Park on Saturday.

Horsford win derby after being bowled out for 101

Horsford recorded a thrilling seven-run victory over Vauxhall Mallards on a tough day for the batsmen at Manor Park.

The home side must have feared the worst after being dismissed for just 101, with Paul Bradshaw and Brett Stolworthy both taking three wickets and Ben France producing the eye-catching figures of 10-2-10-2.

But as it turned out the low total, which featured a fine 46 from Stephan Marillier, proved just about enough. Mallards were skittled out for only 94 in 35.3 overs as Ryan Findlay took 5-26 and Chris Brown and Chris Read weighed with two wickets apiece.

Norwich slid to a seven wicket defeat in a rain-affected game at Burwell, which saw the hosts comfortably chase down a revised target of 192 in 37 overs. Norwich had made 221-9 from their full allocation, a score that was built around a 91-run stand between Will O’Donnell (56) and Ashley Watson (40).
