Hemsby won big at New Buckenham in Norfolk League Division Five. They made 244 for eight declared then bowled out their hosts for 83.

After driving through several rainstorms Hemsby arrived to blue skies and sunshine. The captains decided on a 40-over game to give the pitch extra drying time.

New Buckenham put Hemsby into bat. They lost skipper Hudson in the second over with the score on 14 but Colclough joined Ryan and they put on 179 for the second wicket with Colclough making a beautiful hundred, finally being dismissed

for 109.

Ryan followed soon after for 74 and some good hitting from Boylan, Tilbrook and Holmes helped Hemsby to 244-8 off 36 overs. Hudson declared as the clouds started to roll in.

Hemsby got the first wicket with a juggled catch by Ryan in second slip off Tilbrook. Boylan then got his first wicket in the next over.

New Buckenham kept playing their shots and with a mixture of good fortune and good strokes started to form a partnership.

Boylan, however, was proving too much of a handful, picking up 5-27 off his 10 overs.

This was backed up by Box who took 4-21, claiming three wickets in his third over and denying Rob Shepherd the chance to bowl an over.
