- Credit: PA

Sandringham had a successful jaunt across the county to beat Caister in Level One of the Norfolk League.

Great Yarmouth were unable to replicate that feat, going down at Denver (Paul Morton 75, Dan Harper 74).

Leaders Snettisham continue to demonstrate why they have been so close to promotion to the Alliance in the last few years, beating Cringleford Lodge with Damien Twiddy taking 7-28.

Mark English's unbeaten 50 was enough to see Saxlingham to victory at Felthorpe and 70s for Wayne Goreham and Chris Lambert meant Kirkley & Belton beat Blundeston.

Reepham & Salle's Harry Leggoe took 5-39 as they beat Castle Acre in Level Two West, Jahy Chima with 119 not out and Matt Taylor with 129no proving far too much for Gooderstone as Castle Rising turned on the style, further enhanced by Mahesh Sannakki taking 4-31. Heacham's Adam Darlow made 77 as they overcame North Elmham for whom Ed Maule made 55, and Northwold's Ady Seymore made 58 against Garboldiham B.

Harry Jones, with 52, and Sri Tenjarla with 63 was not enough as Phil Wright's 77, and Vish Ready's 4-35 saw Drayton home.

In Level Three West, Aaron Riseborough (Holt) made 77 and Dan Greeves took 4-15 as they lost to Beeston for whom Howard Bailey made 58 and Matt Wright took 4-14.
