Top four go marching on

Martham recorded another emphatic victory to stay top of Division One – but their three closest challengers also won to keep up the pressure.

The leaders posted a formidable 249 for five against Horsford B, with Liam Smith making 57 and Jack Whatmough 52, and then skittled their opponents out for 107 with Whatmough taking five for 14.

Second-placed Vauxhall Mallards B were involved in a much closer game against Sprowston B, eventually getting home by 45-runs after setting a target of 256 for six while Yarmouth are third after a nailbiting victory over Ketteringham Hall, who fell three runs short chasing 185 to win. Jack Noakes and Mark Cockerill both took four wickets for Yarmouth while Rob Smith scored 92 for Ketteringham.

Felthorpe and Drayton continue to set the pace in Division Two after wins over Belton and St Andrews respectively while in Division Three leaders Blundeston cruised to victory over Hemsby in double quick time, bowling out the opposition for just 20 before knocking off the runs required without loss.

In Division Four Mike Burrell weighed in with an unbeaten 89 as Colney beat St Andrews by eight wickets.
