    I’m heading over to Brooke tonight to watch the U13s ECB Quarter-Final so there is no specific U15 practice. U15s are welcome to join-in with the seniors at 6.30.

Senior Round-Up: Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th August

Great Melton First Team secured promotion back to Division 2 of the Norfolk Alliance without a ball being bowled when their scheduled game at Bircham was called off in the morning leaving Melton and Bradenham too far ahead of the chasing pack to be caught. The reason for the call-off, was that the covers had blown off the wicket and, after heavy overnight rain, the pitch was unplayable but the fact that for most of the day on Saturday it was windy and sunny - perfect drying conditions - and virtually every other game in the Alliance was completed made the cancellation doubly disappointing. It was especially galling that Melton were left with just 5 points whereas title rivals Bradenham picked up 24 for beating Acle, thus narrowing the gap at the top to just 3 points. It looks like a winner-takes-all final game when the two clubs meet on the Bradenham Common on the final day of the season.

The C Team’s game against Old Catton A was also called off as Catton failed to raise a side but the As and the Bs both played. The A Team won by 71 runs against Lowestoft A at Melton Park after Jonathan Ellse, persuaded to step up from the C Team for one week as the As were short of batsmen, scored 69 in their total of 213-6. Woody Loines (29), Matt Henderson (21) and Ryan Hayward (15) all chipped-in with a few and there was a unbroken 7th wicket partnership of 40 between skipper Simon Woods (16 not out) and Rob Sims (18 not out) before Dale Weston blunted Lowestoft’s reply with superb figures of 9-4-9-4. Simon Halley scored 57 for the visitors but there was a wicket apiece for Kyle Mason (1-17), Sims (1-44), Anush Ganesh (1-44), Henderson (1-8) and Kyle Weston (1-14) as Lowestoft were dismissed for 142.

The B Team’s mini-revival that saw them record consecutive victories was ended at Felthorpe where, on a very green, soft wicket, they lost the toss and were bowled out for just 73. Melton’s batsmen had no answer to Felthorpe’s Jordan Coldham who exploited the conditions well taking 6-31 from his 9 overs. Aidan Brand, with 20, was the only Melton batsman to reach double figures as Ben Hunt (2-10) and Hernant Raut (2-9) helped Coldham dismiss the visitors in 33 overs. To their credit, Melton bowled and fielded well in defence of their small total and it wasn’t until the 29th over that Felthorpe scored the winning runs and it was Coldham (19 not out) and Raut (22 not out) who backed up their bowling with a match-winning partnership. Chris Wright (3-9), Flynn Crosthwaite (1-12) and Joseph Graves (1-9) ensured Melton bagged 5 wickets and 2 points to add to the one batting point in what was a disappointing day for stand-in skipper Eusha Fawad.

A young Sunday side lost at Barney by 7 wickets. Ben Mann (29, Leo DeSalis (26) and Oli Leinster (18) plus a generous portion of ‘extras’ (29) allowed Melton to reach a below-par 123 all out. Barney used 9 bowlers with Charlie Nunn (8-5-8-3) easily the most impressive but there were two-fers for Lewie Bragg (2-24) and Jack Burton (2-17). In reply there were wickets for Taha Raja (1-14), Joseph Graves (1-19) and Ben Johnson (1-27) and, when Burton was dismissed for 26 with the score on 68-3, Melton were still in with an outside chance but Nunn (32 not out) and Jacob Seed (17 not out) saw the home side to victory inside 23 overs.

Great Melton U15s secured the South Norfolk Community League 'Green' Division championship with a comprehensive victory over Old Buckenham in their final game. Captain Lohit Kannan and Charlie Green got Melton off to an excellent start with an 87-run opening partnership that ended when Lohit retired having scored 50. Green was eventually out for 17 and Cassie Mawby for 2 but Joseph Graves with some lovely shots in his 29, Corey Rushton (7 not out) and Ben Johnson (10 not out) pushed the Melton score to 158-3. There were 2 wickets for Elliot Stevenson (2-18).

With Johnson (2-0-8-1) having Old Buckenham's best batsman, Nathan Muggeridge, caught behind by Corey Rushton for 4 and Joseph Graves removing Nicholls and Waller for 4 runs in his one over, the visitors were in some disarray. Ria Wallbank and Stevenson showed some resistance with a last-wicket stand but Lohit (1.5-1-0-1) fittingly bowled Ria to clinch victory. The wickets were shared by Johnson, Graves, Kannan, "golden arm" Ethan Rushton (2-0-5-2) and Taha Raja (2-0-2-1) as Old Buckenham were dismissed for 33.

Congratulations to the U15s who have won all 4 of their SNCL games with the other conceded by Garboldisham and also reached the Quarter-Final of the Alliance Andy Seeley Trophy & the Semi-Final of the ECB Competition. A big-thank-you to Manager Kannan Kuppusamy and other players, coaches and parents who have assisted with umpiring & scoring during the U15s successful season.

After several attempts, Melton Phoenix, the club’s U19 Team eventually played their second game in the ECB U19 T20 Competition but proved no match for an older and more experienced Hethersett & Tas Valley Team who won by 82 runs.

With the big-hitting David Mathews and Tom Osborne both scoring half-centuries and Jonathan Cooper unbeaten on 28, Tas managed to post 159-2 from their 20 overs. It wasn’t actually a bad bowling display from Melton who only bowled 8 wides/no balls even though leg-side wides were in operation but Mathews and Osborne struck the ball hard and Tas were helped by Melton’s inability to hold their catches. Ben Johnson, continuing his good recent form, was easily the pick of the bowlers with 1-15 from his 4 overs.

Chasing a large total, Melton suffered two early blows when Lohit Kannan (0) and Kai Wilkinson-Loines (4) both departed cheaply. Pat Walton and Kyle Weston showed some resistance with 23 and 10 respectively but once they were out, the rest of the batting folded, no other batsman making double-figures as Melton were dismissed for 77, Alex Bird taking 3-6 and J.Rhodes 2-0.

With the third group match versus Breckland called off for a second time – on this occasion they were unable to raise a side and conceded – and the deadline this Friday, it means leaves Melton with one victory (the conceded match) & two defeats so they won't qualify for the County Finals.

A big thank-you to Josh Wright and his dad Chris for their efforts in managing the U19s this season. Thanks also to the parents, coaches and senior players who have helped out with umpiring, scoring etc.
