Weekend Round-Up: July 14th & 15th

Great Melton First Team’s search for a win continues. On Saturday they went down to their 11th defeat of a disappointing season at Downham, again failing to chase down a modest target of 213 all out. The wickets were shared around as Melton’s bowlers stuck to the task of containing the Downham batsmen on a warm afternoon. Luke Marchant took 3-45, Joe Bickel 2-40, plus there was a wicket apiece for Tom Moye (1-52), George Bunn (1-14) and Richard Waddell (1-22) but no batsman was able to stay around to play the anchor innings that was needed as Melton were bowled out for 130 in the 36th over. Marchant scored a useful 35, batting at seven and Matt Clarke was next highest scorer with 26 with Lohit Kannan (13) and Richard Wood (18) the only others to make double figures.

The A Team, playing unbeaten Cromer, looked to be well in with a shout when they had the home side struggling at 60-6 but Tom Jackson (61), Liam Davies (52) and Darren Payne (62 not out) illustrated the depth of Cromer’s batting, seeing them to an impressive 281 all out. Melton then lost early wickets but eventually made 224-9 in reply. Nick Gristwood (24) and Matt Henderson (29) batted well for a while but the most impressive partnership was for the 6th wicket between two 15-year-olds, James Bridges who scored 65 and Josh Wright with 33. Daniel Byrne took 3-39 for the unbeaten league leaders who won by 57 runs..

The B Team took on Beeston with a very young and inexperienced side who weren’t quite a match for their opponents. There was some excellent fielding and superb catching including two catches and a run-out from Corey Rushton but opener Adrian Parke’s 86 plus 39 from Isaac Blackford enabled Beeston to score 231-8. Leo DeSalis (10-4-24-1) was his usual economical self, Matt Rushton (9-2-35-3) took 3 wickets and youngsters Kyle Weston (2-46), Ben Johnson (0-35), Ben Granville (1-31) and Jamie Granville (0-45) did well enough but they couldn’t quite contain the Beeston batsmen which meant at least two of Melton’s senior batsmen would need big scores. Unfortunately that didn’t happen, Rushton top-scoring with just 24 as Melton were dismissed for 117.

It was left to the Cs to record the only victory of the day, scoring 200 plus for the first time this season then bowling out Ketteringham Hall A for 195 to win by 38 runs. An opening partnership of 121 between Steve Phoenix (62) and Steve Clarke (51) set a firm foundation which was built on by Jonathan Ellse (55 not out) and Ben Fletcher (34) as Melton reached 233-4. It all looked under control as Gary Coulson (7-1-37-3), Duncan Greenslade (1-26) and Rachael Hustler (1-32) made inroads into the visitors’ batting, leaving them at 60-5 but Adam Pocklington had other ideas. Relying on a ‘good eye’ and plenty of power Pocklington swung across the line to magnificent effect scoring 75 in just 9 overs. Much to Melton’s relief he eventually missed a straight one from Clive Rennie (10-3-35-2) and, despite Alex Pocklington’s 21 and 19 from Shiv Arya, Phoenix (1-17) and Alice Greenslade (1-2) ended any further resistance although the match ended with James Palmer top edging a ball into his face which saw him have to retire hurt and necessitated a trip to A & E.

With the World Cup Final causing availability issues which saw several Mid-Norfolk Sunday League games called off, Melton’s game with Fakenham went ahead but 2 morning call-offs meant Melton could only muster 8 players. Nevertheless a fine innings of 119 not out by Sam Mann and a half-century from James Robb saw Melton post 245-4. Despite the best efforts of the 8 plus two of the players’ girlfriends, Fakenham reached 247-4 to win by 6 wickets.
