||It was a beautiful Sunday lunchtime on our lovely sandy beach when the cricketers
turned out for a quiet game to while away the hours.
The charity cricket match was organised by Peter Taylor and the Black Thunder Girls turned
up to support, indeed joined in the fun.
It was a good, close, friendly match with the victers being the Lobster team by 18 runs.
Spectators lined the sea wall and enjoyed the spectacle in the beaming sunshine. Highest
score went to Steve. £210 was raised for charity. Well done to all who took part.
|Sheringham entertained fellow Alliance
Division 3 promotion hopefuls Dereham and after a tense game, the Shannocks gained a
winning draw picking up 16 points in the process. Put into bat, Sherigham lost Sizeland in
the second over to the bowling of J. Briggs (4-60). This brought Kris Howell and Ryan
Carter (30) together and pair added 73 runs in only 17 overs and a big score seemed on the
cards. Derehams I Battelley (3-52) broke the partnership when Carter went for one big hit
too many. Jez Wright (26) joined his captain in a third wicket partnership of 64 to keep
the momentum going before he was adjudged caught behind. Howell (89) had by now taken
command and a deserved century seemed a formality until he was caught on the boundary.
With 10 overs remaining and the score on 163 for 5, Sheringham should have set a
formidable total, however good bowling from P. Robinson (0-17) in the final overs
restricted the Shannocks to a slightly disappointing 200 for 7 off their 46 overs.
Derehams innings got off to a poor start with Andy Mc,Kean (1-47) and Wright (4-20)
reducing them to 19 for 3, one of the wickets due to an outstanding slip catch from
Sizeland. J. Bennett (19) staged a fight back until Stuart Smith (1-26) and Phil Moy
(2-48) struck to leave Dereham apparently dead and buried at 52 for 5. However Battelley
(76 no) and P. Milbourne (39) had other ideas and gradually the tide appeared to turn with
the pair putting on 93 and at 145 for 5 with plenty of overs remaining the visitors looked
good. Andy King (1-30) made a vital breakthrough and although P. Bennet (12) added useful
runs tight bowling from Wright and Moy in the final few overs almost snatched victory for
Sheringham, but Dereham held on to reach 193 for 9 at the close.
Sheringham innings 200 - 7, Dereham innings 193 - 9
