Deaf Sport moved up to third place in the NCSMBA Summer League after a resounding 8-0 home win against Thorpe Marriott.

Rob Cranson, Caroline Mohamad and Robin Amos were in terrific form against Richard Perkins' triple as they chalked up a huge 27-3 win and then added a 13-11 win against Tony Turner after the break. Gillian Amos, Lewis Cranston and Laura Hawksworth joined in the fun beating Tony Turner's triple 18-12 and then beating George Clarke 14-10.

Division Two leaders Horsford Heroes brushed aside visitors Shropham to collect an 8-0 home win. Richard Hart, Sue Fox & Jane James won their games by 21-8 and 24-9 while Peter Fox won by 24-8 and 20-9. Shropham also went down 8-0 at Watton where Roger Braham's triple won 18-11 and 24-6 and Richard Adams won by 17-10 and 21-8. It's now six games without a win for Windows who went down 6-2 at Hingham.

Wendy Tweed, Colin Harris & Keith Thomas scored the biggest win beating Mike Boswell's triple 21-10 while Eileen Herbert's triple won 20-12 and G Wilcox won 18-8. Di Boswell, Brenda Sizer & Keith Halford scored a consolation 14-9 win to pick up Windows only points.

The Norwich Cup draw was made at the Tens League AGM where the top clubs were relieved to avoid each other. Bob Carter face a visit to Connaught B in the first round and if they win they then travel to Bradwell in the second round. Wymondham are drawn away to Hingham while Hempnall will visit Forncett. The tie of the round looks to be Halvergate's visit to Thorpe Marriott.

Sprowston entertain Horsford BC in the first round with the victors away to Connaught. For the second year running Kirby Bedon play Horsford Heores but this time at Kirby. Harling entertain Hevingham while Framingham Earl play First Bus in an all City League tie.

County delegates at the ESMBA annual general meeting in Tamworth asked some probing questions of Somerset's James Scoins who challenged current chairman Barry Hedges of Essex for the chairmanship. When the votes were counted Hedges had retained his position with 29 votes against eight.
