Great Melton first team moved to the top of Alliance Division 3 with a fourth consecutive victory off the penultimate ball at Brooke. Richard Wood finished one short of his century and Connor Stearman remained unbeaten on 30 as Melton overhauled Brooke A’s 253-7. After an opening partnership of 54 between Ben Mann (30) and Lohit Kannan (17), Melton slumped to 63-3 before a century stand between Tim Hales (50) and Wood took Melton to 177-4 leaving Wood and Stearman to finish the job. Earlier fifties from Ben Prentice and Sam Clabburn, 40 from Harvey Lake and double-figure contributions from all the other batsmen enabled Brooke to post a challenging total. Richard Waddell took 3-58 and Ben Mann 2-37 from their 9 overs.

The As picked up their first win of the season, by 33 runs at home to Horsford B. Chris Greenslade scored 63, Matt Henderson 45 and Martyn Cook 26 as Melton were bowled out for 213 with 3 wickets apiece for Tom Gardiner (3-27) and Chris Browne (3-50). Tight bowling, particularly from Dale Weston (9-5-9-1) and Rob Sims (9-0-21-1) then strangled the Horsford reply and, despite 54 from Charlie Hood and 32 from Will Minns, the visitors fell 33 runs short on 180-7. There were wickets also for Chris Greenslade (2-42), Kyle Mason (1-26), Cook (1-22) and Henderson (1-17).

The B Team’s 144 all out never really looked enough against Eaton who won comfortably by 9 wickets in 32 overs, Matt Duke (39) and Sam Butcher (73 not out) knocked of the runs despite a good spell of 10-1-28-1 from 13-year-old off-spinner Harrison Cunningham. Another 13-year-old, Corey Rushton, scored 30 and Richard Cheal hit 33 in an opening stand of 44 but only Eusha Fawad (22) Matt Rushton (17) and Kyle Weston (10) made double figures as Melton went from 117-3 to 142 all out. Udai Mopuru took 4-39 for Eaton.

Jonathan Ellse scored his first-ever century and Oli Leinster hit an unbeaten 55 but both finished on the losing side in a nail biting encounter with Colney who needed six to win off the final ball and achieved it thanks to former Melton C Captain and the one-time Melton Coaching Coordinator, Simon Carding, who pulled Jim Wimhurst’s final ball for six over mid-wicket. It was disappointing after Ellse had battled to a superb 112 not out to help Melton to 216-5. Young bowlers George Woodcock (10-1-34-2), Liam Stevens (8-1-42-2) and Alice Greenslade (5-0-23-1) plus the ever reliable Gary Coulson (10-4-26-0) all bowled well but a 4th wicket partnership of 80 between Andy Norman (57) and Tom Hargreaves (32) set up an exciting finish which left Colney needing 9 runs to win off the final over. Only 3 came off 5 balls and it looked like a first win of the season for the Cs but Carding had other ideas!

Great Melton Midweek A Team, apart from a few ‘more experienced’ personnel, had a young look about it for the first round Wicklewood Shield match at Hardingham and, perhaps not surprisingly, the hosts’ team of adult players carried just a little bit too much firepower on the day. Nevertheless, despite the 6-wicket defeat, the mix of youth and maturity enjoyed a good game on a glorious sun-lit evening. In fact the setting sun at one end of the ground was so bright and difficult for the batsmen that the full 40 overs were bowled from the same end!

Melton’s total of 92-8 never looked to be quite enough. Steve Phoenix top-scored with just 16 and, despite the best efforts of the Rushton’s, Matt (14), Corey (12) and Ethan (13) and a good 11 not out at the end by Ben Johnson, no batsman was able to produce a substantial innings as Josh Downs (2-4), Mitchell Britten (2-12) and Dan Kelly (2-7) took two wickets apiece.

13-year-old James Cooper and the club’s leading wicket-taker Leo DeSalis, opened the bowling and James’ figures of 3-0-14-2 just about bettered Leo’s (4-0-19-1) as the pair kept Melton very much in the match. However, Chris Watts proved obdurate and, despite a fourth wicket from Matt Rushton, Watts remained unbeaten on 32 and saw Hardingham home with 3 overs to spare.

GREAT MELTON U15s, U13s & U11s MAKE IT A HAT-TRICK OF VICTORIES OVER ROCKLANDS

U15s

Lohit Kannan and Flynn Crosthwaite both retired on 30 and 31 respectively and Ethan Rushton scored an unbeaten 22 as Melton U15s proved a bit too strong for Rocklands in the Andy Seeley Trophy. Flynn, against his former club, played some excellent back-foot drives and ran very well with opening partner Lohit as Melton got off to a brisk start. Ben Johnson contributed 12 as Melton went on to score 141-3 off their 16 overs.

Rocklands were then bowled out for 51 with two wickets in an over from Lohit (2-1) and two for Cassie Mawby (2.4-0-6-2). Flynn (1-12) and Henry Marsh (3-1-10-1), plus a run out completed a good day for Melton.

U13s

Great Melton U13s went ballistic against Rocklands in the Allan Bridgewater trophy compiling a record 16-over score of 219-1. Flynn Crosthwaite, yet to be dismissed in 3 innings for Melton in which he has scored over 130 runs, again retired with 33 as did opening partner Corey Rushton with 30 with Melton got off to a blistering start.

Harrison Cunningham (30 retired), George Woodcock (30 retired) and James Cooper (33 retired) continued the carnage as the unfortunate Rocklands bowlers suffered in the evening sunshine. Odin Thomas was the only batsmen to miss out being run out for 0!

Menuka Jayakody then ensured Melton would not have things all their own way with a pugnacious 35 but none of the other visiting batsmen reached double figures as James Cooper took 4-8 in just 1.4 overs. Cunningham (2-1-4-1), Crosthwaite (2-1-1-1) and Thomas (2-0-9-1) were the other wicket-takers as Rocklands were bowled out for 62 giving Melton a crushing 157-run victory.

U11s

The U11s followed the U15s and U13s in completing the hat-trick, winning by 54 runs in the Terry Moore trophy.

As a team they batted, bowled and fielded really well. Special mention to Leon Royle and Henley Barnes who were both on debut. Leon bowled 2 very good overs and Henley took a wicket, clean-bowled. Henley is going to be best man on Friday at his father’s wedding and he was certainly one of the best men in this match. Tight spells from Charlie, Jake and Albert restricted the opportunity for the opposition to score. Evan Mercer also took a wicket but the best figures were achieved by captain, James Alcock (3-0-3-2). George Alcock kept wicket well, conceding only 2 byes.

Earlier Melton had scored 315-3 in their innings, a net score of 297 with James Alcock scoring 32 runs and George Alcock contributing 30. It was too many for Rocklands to chase against Melton’s bowling attack and they fell well short, scoring 267-4 (243 net).
