Terrington St Clement cricketers beaten by flashing blade of Barney & Fulmodeston batsman
Terrington St Clement Cricket Club bowlers had no answer to the flashing blade of Barney & Fulmodeston’s Aaron Riseborough who propelled the visitors to a swift eight-wicket success.
Riseborough, who earlier in the Boyle Elite Division match took three wickets, hammered 70 runs from just 41 balls with six fours and five sixes before retiring.
In the first innings after Barney won the toss and elected to field, second-spot Terrington built their total around opener Vic Young who compiled a patient 38 off 101 balls.
Sam Patel top-scored with 40 for the hosts who were dismissed just before their overs ran out for 173.
Riseborough and fellow opening batsman Jacob Seed made short work of this target.
Barney hit ten sixes in total against Terrington’s half-dozen to win their opening game.
Graham Moore was the only successful Terrington bowler, picking up both Barney wickets to fall.
Scores: Terrington St Clement 173 all out (39.2 overs: Adam Young 33, John ‘Vic’ Young 38, Sam Patel 40, Matthew Brockman-Smith 21; Aaron Riseborough 3-39, Liam Riseborough 1-23, Jack Burton 4-20).
Barney & Fulmodeston CC 175-2 (23ov: Jacob Seed retired no 50, A Riseborough retired no 70, Jack Wells 21, Jason Miller no 25; Graham Moore 2-26).
Saturday’s cricket action across West Norfolk was virtually a complete washout with all but one of the games in both the Norfolk Cricket Alliance and Norfolk Cricket League falling foul of the wet weather.
