Swardeston's game with Vauxhall Mallards a predictably one-sided affair

Swardeston won a predictably one-sided encounter against Vauxhall Mallards at The Common on Saturday to stay right in the thick of the Read Brothers East Anglian Premier League title battle.

The game between a side battling for honours on three fronts and one folding at the end of the season was simply no contest, with the in-form hosts blowing away the opposition on a blustery day by 241 runs.

And the margin of victory would have been over 300 had it not been for a brave last wicket stand between Mallards' James Bridges and Stephen Bradnock, which more than doubled the visitors' total.

After being asked to bat first Swardeston were given a flying start by brothers Jordan and Callum Taylor, who put on 85 for the first wicket. Jordan Taylor went on to make 71 and once he went Peter Lambert (82 in 60 balls) and Lewis Denmark (77 in 71) took control as Swardeston put a young attack to the sword to reach 381-6 in their 50 overs.

A familiar batting slump saw Mallards crash to 68-9 before Bridges (49) and Bradnock (18 not out) provided some late resistance to take the total up to 140. Matthew Taylor (4-58) and Toby Duncan (3-12) took top bowling honours while Stephen Gray, who was taking a break from wicket-keeping duties, got the final wicket.

Swardeston remain four points behind leaders Frinton, who won comfortably at Saffron Walden, but now have a 17 point advantage over defending champions Sudbury, who were edged out by 11 runs in a thrilling encounter at Copdock.

Horsford maintained their excellent run of form with a 136 run home win over Burwell and Exning to move to within 23 points of Sudbury in fourth position. Captained by Will Rogers with Ryan Findlay away, Horsford took control by making 265-6, with Jason Reynolds (78) and Oscar Binny (61) leading the way. The visitors never looked like chasing down that solid total and were dismissed for just 129 as recent Norfolk recruit Thomas Nudd took 5-41.

Great Witchingham recorded an impressive nine wicket win at Bury St Edmunds, even though home opener Justin Broad made an unbeaten 118.

Despite the South African's heroics Bury could only reach 218-5 in their 50 overs and the Witches knocked off the runs in the 42nd.

Jack Boyle and Sam Arthurton had put on 38 for the first wicket when Boyle went for 17. That was to be the only success for Bury as there followed a batting masterclass by Arthurton and James Hale, with both players in fine form in an unbroken partnership of 182.

Arthurton registered a superb 125 not out from 148 balls, with 10 fours and two sixes, while the elegant Hale had six fours in his 68 ball unbeaten 62.
