Reepham & Salle moved to the top of Division Four as Joe Hollis plundered a century.

Reepham’s innings was underpinned by a partnership of 135 between Hollis (104) and Tim Nutting (85). Chasing 247-7 Ashmanhaugh & Barton Wanderers’ B chase was scuppered early on as Mark Lester (5-11) and his colleagues restricted their opponents to 136-all-out. In the same league, North Elmham (185-8) moved up to third by claiming derby honours during a 58-run against Swanton Morley, who fell short as they struggled to deal with Mark Ballman (4-29) and company.

In the top-flight, Ketteringham Hall skittled Rollesby for 89 to move to the summit. They are ahead of Great Yarmouth (second) and Belton (third) by two points. In Division Two, former Cambridge Granta opening bowler Joe Heather made an impressive debut, taking four wickets, for Great Melton B (108) in their two-wicket defeat against Sprowston B (112-8).

For the first time in a senior team, Great Melton C selected two girls, Aimee Palmer and Emily Reay, against Rackheath. Tony Alborough scored 52 in Melton’s 173-9 and Liam Hughes took 4-17 as Rackheath were bowled for 117. Palmer had an impressive debut scoring 16 and conceding just 12 runs in five excellent overs.

In Division Five, Gillingham’s early-season unbeaten run was ended as they were dismissed for a measly 83 at Hethersett & Tas Valley B. In Division Eight, Dereham B posted their highest total of the season (150) but still lost to Great Witchingham B (270-5) while Reepham & Salle B beat Hingham A by nine wickets.
