Division 3E leaders Overstrand suffered a surprise reverse at Felthorpe A, despite Steve Munday’s 6-27 haul. However, Ashmanhaugh & Barton Wanderers B took over second spot after dismissing Gillingham for 86.

Jim Bullimore took 5-16 as Aylsham St Giles beat Frettenham and Dave Fuller’s 89 was not enough for Bungay as Joe Smart took 5-35 for Winterton A, as they won by seven runs. Earlier, Jos and Devon Brannigan scored 55 and 62 apiece for Winterton A.

Division 3W saw Rackheath overcome Hethersett & Tas Valley B with Rich Holmes 88* and Phil Banham 5-40, and 17-year-old Oli Hall scored 118* for North Elmham in their win over Great Melton C.

Division 4E sees undefeated Halvergate marching on. Martham won against Happisburgh with contributions from Archie Smith (82), and Mike Smith (66), and Acle B’s 14-year-olds Alex Quinton scored 101* and Adam Webster took 4-10 as they overcame Winterton B.

In Division 4W, Jon Wyatt scored 137* and Eddie Thorne helped himself to 99 as they piled up the runs against Ketteringham Hall A, for whom Jon Webb scored 91.

New Buckenham were indebted to Nigel Frame’s half-century and Varghese’s 6-18 in their game against Sprowston C. There were also half-centuries for Cawley for Colney, and Billings for Great Ellingham.

Division 5E leaders Southwold remain unbeaten as they thrashed Hethersett & Tas Valley C by 10 wickets, Alex Britten leading the victory charge with 83* after Ed Garrard took 4-7, earlier Stuart Cooper scored 81* for Tas.
