Rollesby won by 10 wickets at Ketteringham Hall in Norfolk League Division One.
Skipper Duxbury was asked to field on what looked to be a good wicket but the Hall top order must have questioned their skipper's decision as D Cook produced a majestic opening spell of bowling.
In his opening over he removed Smith for a duck with a peach of a ball whilst Bobbin (10), Howes (2) and T Quinton (6) had no response to the rampaging opener. He was ably supported by Sparkes who produced a fine spell of eight overs for only 16 runs.
Ketteringham Hall were dismissed for 98.
The Rollesby top order set about chasing their total in a calm fashion with Duxbury and Roffey and Rollesby reached the total without loss with M Duxbury finishing 62 not out and M Roffey 22 not out. This capped a fine all round Rollesby performance.
Filby Kings Head MoM: M Duxbury (62no and 3-29) and D Cook (7-3-11-4).

Rollesby A (7pts) lost to Ketteringham Hall A (25) by 52 runs in Norfolk League Division Six.
Ketteringham Hall were inserted on a dry pitch and made a steady start before losing opener Baker for 18 to a sharp caught and bowled by Oscar Gerdes. The second wicket pair of Briggs (55) and Charlish (20) took the score on before the partnership was broken in the 29th over. Further contributions from Aylmer (20) and Mackenzie (35) took the visitors to an imposing score of 178 for 8 after 45 over.
The Rollesby bowlers stuck to their task on a good pitch with Gerdes taking three for 52 and further contributions by Roy Websdale (two for 33) and Jimmy Catchpole (two for 41). Young Ryan Lewis continued his development with a confident spell of five overs for 21 runs without any luck.
Rollesby lost two wickets very quickly to stand at 10-2 in the sixth over; Websdale departed for three and Jimmy Catchpole dismissed for a first ball duck. Alan Fakes followed for nine.
Gerdes joined Mick Pearce and batted in a familiar fashion hitting a quick 32 before he and Pearce (14) departed quickly to leave Rollesby on 67 for 5 in the 20th over. Mark Hewitt (6) and Johnny Green (18) pushed the score towards 100 before that both departed leaving the skipper Brian Price (22no) to manage the tail of Danny Websadale (2), John Thackray (4), and Ryan Lewis (4) to achieve a third batting point, Rollesby closing on 126 all out.
A disappointing result as the target was achievable if the batsmen had applied themselves.
Rollesby CC Man of the match Oscar Gerdes with three wickets and 32 runs.
