Lucas Fettes Norfolk League: Calypso cricket at Hales
Tobagan recruit Alwyn Lindsay put sunny smiles back on the faces of the Hales and Loddon A players as his brand of calypso cricket helped to produce the team's first win of the season.
Lindsay, who opened the batting with namesake Milton in an all left-handed veteran opening parnership, weighed in with an unbeaten 86 as Hales and Loddon reached their 184 victory target in the 33rd over. Skipper Terry Briggs posted an unbeaten 57 as the team bounced back from the previous week's 315-run nightmare at Happisburgh, and lifted themselves off the bottom of the table. Ashley Barnard had earlier top-scored for Aylsham St Giles with a hard-hit 59.
Robert Smith gave Ketteringham Hall a lift with an unbeaten 115 in a 109-run Division One win over Drayton. At the top Rollesby beat Vauxhall Mallards B by 39 runs to move clear of Sprowston B, who had been sharing top spot. Sprowston B were beaten by East Harling by five wickets.
Martham continue to set a hot pace in Division Two after their powerful batting produced a 224-7 total in a 67-run win over Belton.
Rob Duke (4-29) and Dom Clarke (5-24) helped Eaton to move up from fifth to third in Division Three with a 62-run win over Hingham while leaders St Andrews overpowered Bungay A by 105 runs.
