Norfolk Cricket League Round-Up

Castle Rising continue to lead the way at the top of Division One, as they demolished Great Yarmouth at the Beaconsfield, Matt Taylor taking 5-11 and Josh Widdowson finishing off the innings with a hat-trick.

Rising then knocked off their target of 62 for the loss of one wicket.

Sandringham sit clear in the runners-up spot as Callum Lee’s 5-20 proved too much for Happisburgh. Overstrand slipped up at Felthorpe, while Kirkley & Belton had a huge win over basement side Castle Acre.

Narborough lead the way in 2West, Matthew Coe with 62* leading the run chase against East Harling.

Reepham & Salle kept the pressure on Narborough by narrowly squeezing past Great Ellingham.

Gooderstone’s Adrian Seymour took 5-10 in their win over Beetley, while Drayton thrashed Holt by 10 wickets.

Beeston remain clear in 3West, Saham Toney remain second, and Sandringham 2nds’ Brad Tennant hit 76 in their win.

The leaders remain unchanged in the 4NW division, Castle Rising A winning.
