Vauxhall Mallards bounced back from a disappointing derby defeat by beating another of their local rivals.

Having failed to chase down 101 against Horsford at Manor Park, Mallards had no such batting problems against Norwich at Ingham.

Set a modest 155 for victory, the visitors got home with overs and wickets to the spare this time around as Matt Plater (52) and Mitchell Todd (43 not out) got down to work.

Earlier Ben France, Luke Caswell, Brett Stolworthy and Todd had all taken two wickets while Oli Higenbottam (41) and Ashley Watson were the main men for Norwich.

Horsford followed up their unlikely win by putting in another good shift at Frinton which saw them come away with a hard-earned draw,
