The Norfolk Cricket League season has now reached the halfway point and Sandringham remain clear at the top of Division One, Joe Peveritt leading their title charge with a massive 163 not out in their win over St Andrews.

Castle Acre also won to remain on their heels, while Neil Yarham's 56 saw Overstrand past their target of 165 set by Kirkley & Belton. Saxlingham won as well, and basement side Castle Acre swamped Happisburgh thanks in no small part to Elliott Whiting's unbeaten 142 and 4-5.

Over in 2West, Narborough and Reepham & Salle are separated by a single point, as the former suffered their first reverse against Great Ellingham. Reepham & Salle overcame basement side Holt thanks to Joe Hollis (68) and Fred Playford (51). There were easy wins too for Drayton and East Harling.

2East leaders Caister skittled winless Blundeston for 30 to stay unbeaten, while Halvergate remain in touch after Stuart Willimott's 5-19 ensured they edged past Aylsham St Giles in a low scoring thriller. Southwold, Gillingham and Great Melton also won.

Rollesby still set the pace in 3East with their ninth straight win as they squeezed past Old Catton by two wickets. Kevin Barnard (66*) and David Hayes (53*) ensured Kirkley & Belton A stayed second. Venton Fernandez smashed 173 for Lowestoft B in their win.

Mellis lead 3Central after amassing 347 against Ketteringham Hall A. Malayalees, Tas Valley B and Wensum all won to keep up the chase. Saham Toney A moved clear in 3West, Craig Ellis top-scoring with 83 in their win over Snettisham A. Jim Parker's 6-3 was the highlight as Heacham demolished Sandringham A for 60.

Coltishall and Happisburgh A are scrapping it out in 4NE, with a couple of points separating them. Overstrand A recorded a welcome win, with Ian Parkin scoring a century. 4SE has a tight battle too between Bungay A and Mallards B, again just a couple of points between them, while Castle Rising A head 4NW. Old Buckenham remain unbeaten in 4SW and are well clear.
