Lucas Fettes Norfolk League: Drayton pick up first win of season

Opening batsman Philip Wright smashed 110no as Drayton won for the first time this season in Division One to move off the bottom of the table.

Wright's innings included 14 fours and a six and he was well supported by Andy Hawes (57) as Drayton took charge against fellow strugglers Caister.

The Caister reply was undermined by the efforts of Ravikant Sharma (three for 14) and Rajat Singhani (three for 31) and although Richard Stokes batted throughout the innings for 49no, his team lost by 102 runs.

Ben Stone starred with bat and ball as Norwich Bystanders thrashed Ketteringham Hall by 145 runs.

Stone hit 59 in the Bystanders innings, with Avadhoot Athawale adding 81no. Ketteringham were bowled out for just 58 in reply, with Stone claiming four for 15 and Mark Tisshaw taking four for 20.

R King took four for 39 but it was not enough to prevent a 40-run defeat for Vauxhall Mallards B at home to East Harling.

Rollesby remain top after their seven-wicket win at Sprowston B.
