- Credit: PA

It's a case of as you were at the top of Norfolk Cricket League's Division after Snettisham made it five wins from five outings.

This time a weakened Felthorpe side were their victims, going down to a 10-wicket defeat.

Blundeston are still seeking their first win of the season, having come unstuck against Great Yarmouth at the weekend.

In the other matches, Adam Birch hit 61 as Sandringham bounced back from defeat to beat Denver, Caister's Martin Hewill took 6-26 as they beat Cringleford Lodge, and despite Sajid Ali hitting 122, Kirkley and Belton came unstuck against Saxlingham, for whom Ollie Browne hit 118 and Alex Browne 58.

In Division Two West, East Harling won at Heacham. The hosts' Anthony Sadler hit 53 but his efforts were cancelled out by Harling's Ross Pickerill, who made 62. Castle Rising beat Northwold, and North Elmham's first win of the season came against Gooderstone, James White making 56. Skipper George Wright enjoyed his day against Garboldisham B, taking 5-20, having earlier seen Joe Wilson hit 57 as Reepham and Salle recorded another win.

In Division Two East, Tim Woods, with an unbeaten 82, was the pick of the batters as Drayton beat Bystanders. Overstrand consolidated their top spot, beating Gt Melton B, Tim Porter making 53, and Dave Yarham and Billy Yarham taking five and four wickets respectively.

Gillingham's Graham Tharby's 66 was not enough, as Rollesby won, with Chris Alger making 62. Tom Ollerton (62), Mark Ollerton (68) and Giles Kirkham (60) helped Sprowston B to a good win against Ketteringham Hall, whilst Andy Scales' 99 and Imran Mohamed's unbeaten 60 and 7-15 (including a hat-trick) helped St Andrews to a good win over Eaton (Matt Butler 79).
