Seven wickets for Hemsby A’s Debnam

HEMSBY entertained local rivals Winterton A in Norfolk League Division Four and won by four wickets.

The Hemsby captain decided to have a bowl and Winterton were going at five runs an over before Noble-Parker hit a full toss straight to Bradnock.

Smith soon picked up both Roper and Reeder. Crawley looked to rebuild for Winterton and made a determined 29. All the Hemsby bowlers did well, sticking to their task and well backed by the fielders to limit the Winterton total to 130 all out.

With Reeder seemingly fired up. Hudson and Ryan looked to chase the runs down with Hudson going after Roper. Reeder was getting the ball through at pace and proving that there was plenty of bounce in the pitch.

Hambrook dismissed Ryan with the score on 65, and when Hudson went with 84 on the board, Hemsby were having a bit of a wobble. But Shepherd and Kidd saw them home in the 32nd over.
