Norfolk lost five wickets in pursuit of that target, but Martin Pearse (42) and Dickie Sayers (20) helped them achieve victory in the 33rd over.

Last week, Norfolk Over-50s collapsed to a six-run defeat against Bedfordshire, despite seeming on course for a comfortable win as Paul Rice, pictured, hit 57. Norfolk O60s lost by six wickets against Essex, despite an impressive batting performance which saw half-centuries for Rice (87) and Richard Davies (62).
