Horsford lose after failing to building on dream start

Horsford were unable to build on a dream start as they suffered a frustrating 28 run defeat at the hands of unbeaten Frinton in the East Anglian Premier League.

Ryan Findlay's side had their visitors in all sorts of trouble at 4-3 and then 37-4 on a glorious morning at Manor Park, with Callum Melcalf striking twice, but were unable to press home their advantage as a familiar face got stuck in.

Norfolk skipper Ashley Watson played a crucial supporting role with a patient 38 in 109 balls as his club captain Michael Comber led from the front with what turned out to be a match-winning innings of 101.

The pair added 98 for the fifth wicket, with Comber then organising the tail to get Frinton's total up to a hard-fought 205-9 in 64 overs.

Horsford were always in it in reply, but wickets fell regularly and in the end captain Ryan Findlay was left stranded on 40 as his team were dismissed for 177 in the 57th over.

The win enabled Frinton to move to within two points of Swardeston, who had a much easier time of it against Burwell and Exning.

The visitors batted well enough to make 301-8, with Paul Summerskill scoring 77 and Crispin Clarke, Joe Gatting and Peter Lambert all taking two wickets, but it soon became clear that the respectable total would not be nearly enough.

A second wicket parntership of 208 between Jordan Taylor and Stephen Gray saw Swardeston cruise along at a rate of over six an over, with Taylor making 114 (12 fours, one six) and Gray 139 (15 fours, four sixes).

Swardeston ended up wrapping the win up in the 49th over for the loss of just three wickets to set themselves up nicely for next Saturday's trip to Frinton.

A second wicket stand of 100 between Sam Arthurton (74) and James Hale (55) was the only highlight for Great Witchingham at Mildenhall. The next highest score was just five as they stuttered to 152 all out and the hosts overhauled that disappointing total for the loss of only four wickets, with three of those coming when the match was all but won.

Vauxhall Mallards suffered another comprehensive defeat to slip 62 points adrift at the foot of the table. They went down by 182 runs at Bury St Edmunds, who made 303-7 with Josh Cantrell top scoring with 61 and Sean Park and Alastair Alchin putting on an unbroken 74 for the fourth wicket.

Paul Bradshaw (3-26) was the pick of the bowlers and there was at least one batting star this week as Harry Barker made a defiant 49. However his resistance was never going to change the result, with Mallards being dismissed for 121.
