HALVERGATE'S three teams had all of their games either rained off completely or abandoned.

The A-team game Norfolk League Division Eight match at Alborough was called off on Saturday morning because the ground was waterlogged.

The first XI had played 22 overs, their openers Steven Clarke and Luke Hannant putting on 83 runs before a deluge caused their

Division Two game to be abandoned against Drayton.

Clarke was continuing his recent form to reach 60 not out and young Luke, who had batted well against some hostile bowling, was on 12 not out.

The Hares' Sunday team was the side left most disappointed when their excellent game at home against Worstead was left hanging in the balance with the Hares needing 22 more runs for victory with four overs of the game left.

Heavy rain and bad light sent the players off for a final time with the game, which had ebbed and flowed all afternoon, still to be decided.

Worstead won the toss and batted first but soon found themselves two wickets down for 20 runs when Tom Booth's excellent six-over spell saw him take both wickets for just 11 runs.

However, R Bingham (35) and A Browne (49) took advantage of his rest period to move the score along to 84 after 22 overs before Browne's hard-hitting innings was ended with a catch by Steven Clarke from Tim Crane's bowling.

K Yaxley (37) and Bingham added 37 before Bingham was out from a skier by Tom Booth in the 29th over.

The Hares grabbed two more quick wickets thanks to a catch by keeper Scott Foreman and Aaron Brooks getting an lbw decision against S Williamson before K Hemp (23no) and Yaxley had a quick 42 stand before Yaxley was caught by Brooks.

Shaun Howley picked up two wickets in the final over as the innings closed on 167-9. Booth had good figures of 3-24 from 10 overs, while Howley, Brooks and skipper Crane all took two wickets.

When the Hares began their reply, after a delay at tea for rain, they had to get over the shock of losing their talisman, Steven Clarke, for four with just seven runs on the board.

Luke Hannant (19) and William Gilder (30) had a good partnership of 50 before they were both caught out when the score was on 57.

Scott Foreman (19) and Chris Mills (7) took the score to 91 before they both departed in the 25th over.

Shaun Howley, with a quick 23 runs, and Aaron Brooks (24no) put the Hares back into contention before Howley was bowled in the 33rd over with 32 runs still needed from seven overs.

Just three more overs were possible and the score had reached 145-6 when heavy rain returned and caused the game to be abandoned.

Sunday's league game is at Kirkley and Lowestoft Railway. Tomorrow first XI is away to Topcroft A and A-team is at home to Diss B.
