Lucas Fettes Norfolk League: Rollesby defend crown

Rain allowed Rollesby to secure their second successive Norfolk League title as both they and rivals Great Yarmouth saw their games wiped out.

Only one match was completed in Division One, as Vauxhall Mallards B beat Cringleford Lodge by 138 runs. Warren Green hit 64no as Mallards passed 300, before spinner Rivers King claimed four for 66.

There was also only one match completed in Division Two, as Happisburgh won by seven wickets at Overstrand. Richard Mash took five for 39 for Happisburgh, who went on to complete a comfortable win as Richard Huckle made 56.

Hales and Loddon A's hopes of avoiding relegation were washed away by a deluge soon after the tea interval of their game at home to Belton. Hales were put in to bat and posted a respectable 198, featuring an unbeaten 80 from Mark Stewart. The visitors were 16 for one off six overs when the match was abandoned.

Division Three fared best as three matches reached a conclusion.

Dom Clarke made 88no for Eaton as they beat Bungay A by 12 runs – but they were denied promotion as Hingham won by nine wickets at Hemsby to clinch second place.

Champions St Andrews beat Rackheath by six wickets, as Gary Wright took three wickets without conceding a run.
