Norfolk Cricket League Round-Up

With a third of the season gone, the leagues are starting to take shape, and Castle Rising have emerged as the front runners in Division One.

Rising beat Saxlingham by three wickets, Rob Child hitting 79, while Craig Beeden hit 82 for Saxlingham.

Castle Acre finally got off the mark, as they beat Felthorpe by seven wickets, Elliott Whiting cracking 85 and taking a hat-trick.

Overstrand comfortably beat morning leaders Sandringham, Tim Porter (66) and Chris Rogers (63*) being the main contributors, as both sides are just eight points behind the leaders.

Great Yarmouth beat Happisburgh by eight wickets, Steve Hak (68*) leading the way, while Wayne Goreham hit 65* for Kirkley and Belton as they beat St Andrews by 7 wickets.

Narborough still lead the way in Div 2W despite a week off.

Gooderstone’s victory owed much to Glenn Fossey’s 75*, while Beetley also won.

With Felthorpe A having withdrawn from the division, Garboldisham and Reepham & Salle won to keep up the pressure, Mark Lester grabbing 5-10 for the latter.

Div 3W still sees Beeston heading the list. Olly Hall (94*) helped North Elmham to their win. Bircham and Sandringham won, while Castle Rising A are the leaders in Div 4NW.

In the Tom Bartram T20, there were wins for Overstrand, Saxlingham, Drayton and Frettenham.
