Lucas Fettes Norfolk League: Rollesby fire a warning

Reigning champions Rollesby stepped up their battle to keep their crown as they snatched back a share of top spot.

Matt Duxbury's side had been stalking Sprowston B and Yarmouth but although Sprowston came out on top in the clash of those two clubs, Rollesby's 26-point crushing of Caister was enough to see them move level with Sprowston.

East Harling moved up a place into fourth with Stuart Hilton bagging five wickets and Michael Pill recording a a hat-trick in a six-wicket win over Cringleford Lodge.

Warren Green gave Vauxhall Mallards B a timely lift, claiming 7 for 24 as his side skittled out Ketteringham Hall for 50. Mallards had eight wickets in hand as they recorded their first win of the season.

Top billing in Division Two went to Happisburgh's Ryan Raven who smashed 152, containing 17 fours and five sixes, in a mammoth 315-6 total against lowly Hales and Loddon A. Jamie Carter also joined in the runfest with a quickfire 56, featuring four sixes and five fours.
