Winterton's 1st XI lost their second successive game at Hardingham, losing a close match by five wickets to slip off the top of Norfolk League Division One for the first time this season.

On a damp wicket Winterton were soon in trouble. Josh Austin (24) and Ben Webb (35) were the main contributors in a crawl to 145-9. Fred Playford making his debut batted patiently and with maturity in difficult conditions and was superb in the field.

Skipper Kevin Percival took 3-16 and with nine overs left Hardingham required 46 with six wickets in hand. Rain made for a slippery outfield and wicket and some lusty blows from A Duckham (29) saw Hardingham home.
