|A weakened Sheringham side arrived in Norwich
for this Alliance Division 3 fixture, looking for maximum points to move them up towards
the right end of the table.
The home side won the toss and took to the field meaning the lobsters were to bat first.
Unfortunately for Norwich Union, a very promising start was made by the opening pair of
Chris Wright and Stuart Smith. A fine display of batting put Sheringham in a very good
position to post a big total.
A partnership totaling 90 was made before Wright succumbed for a good 52. However, Smith
failed to reach the landmark as he was caught for 43.
This sparked a ini-collapse as Mckensie was bowled by the impressive Hussain for 5 and A
King was caught behind for only 1. Graver returned to the pavilllion for 17 and Sheringham
looked to be collapsing to a poor total.
A revival was made by S Walton and O Smith before Smith again got out after getting a
start. As the tail-enders entered, things didn't get much better. Hussain removed both
captain Mckean and D King to claim his five-wicket haul and then caught Moy off the
bowling of Kennedy.
A resilient Walton was left not out on 15 as the innings closed on a very disappointing
161 for the loss of 9 wickets.

|Sheringham Sunday XI travelled
the distance to the lovely ground of Matishall for their fixture on an extremely hot
day. With over half the team consisting of juniors, it was made tough for Sheringham as In
losing the toss, the lobsters were asked to take the field. Everything went to the script
for Sheringham as they removed youngsters Mayers and Cross very cheaply, both succumbing
to good catches. Number 3 batsman Cole was striking the ball well but failed to find a
partner as N Gostling fell soon after, bowled by the impressive 15 yr old, D King who
returned figures of 3-33. Thus bought together australian Fitssimins and Cole who added a
very strong 77 partnership before Cole was well caught and bowled by King for 57 as the
youngster claimed his second. Fitssimons followed soon after, edging a ball to slip off
the bowling of Taylor. M Gostling and Fondel both went and things were looking
increasingly promising for the lobsters. However a fine display of hitting followed from R
Gostling who demolished the bowling in hitting a very quick 50. He was well supported by
Fordham (27) as the innings closed on 232 leaving Sheringham staring at a long run chase.
And, things couldn't have possibly started any worse. Graver was dismissed 3rd ball
and Mckensie out 1st ball, both bowled by Fordham in the first over. Then, the following
ball of the next over, J Wright edged one and was snapped up by the wicket keeper. Minor
resistance was shown by both Neave and Bush but both fell victim to Fordham as the wickets
kept tumbling. Sturgess was next to follow down the stream of poor shots as he scooped one
back up to the bowler for only 2. As went captain Garrard, who found one of many slip
fielders and Sheringham were looking at their worst ever score at 25 for 7. But some
parrity was restored by father and son, as Steve and Matthew Hudson tried desperatly to
resurrect the innings. M Hudson then was trapped LBW for a gutsy 5 and Taylor went soon
after for 3. S Hudson was then unfortunatly ran out for a well played 23 as Sheringham
ended on a sorry 77 all out.
