That elusive first victory of the season for Great Melton 1st Team surely can’t be far away! Last Saturday Richard Waddell’s team, short of 6 players who turned out the previous week at home to Swaffham, produced a good all-round performance at Mattishall but still couldn’t quite get over the line, losing by just 2 runs. 15-year-old James Bridges took 3-35 at Mattishall were bowled out for 236, Smith scoring 59 and Spalding 74. It was still a large total to chase, especially considering Melton’s recent batting woes but Matt Clarke, showing a timely return to form, scoring 74. He found a wiling partner in Waddell and, with the last over to be bowled Melton needed 10 runs for victory. Unfortunately Clarke was dismissed followed by Tom Grant and, despite Waddell’s best efforts, the visitors finished just short on 235-8. Melton’s skipper was unbeaten on 43.

The A Team moved up to 3rd in Alliance Division 5 with a convincing win over Swardeston/CEYMS at Melton Park. Jason Whiddett’s half-century and fellow-opener Woody Loines’ 30 gave Melton a solid platform and there were good contributions by Nick Aston (33), Marcus Mawby (37) and Matt Henderson (34 not out) as Simon Woods’ side reached 243-9. Swardeston were never in the hunt as Henderson completed a man-of-the-match performance with figures of 6.2-2-15-5 to help bowl them out for just 88 in the 26th over. Kyle Mason (7-2-15-3) and Nick Aston (3-0-16-2) were the other wicket-takers.

The B Team were dismissed for 174 in the 44th over in the picturesque surroundings of Thornham and Mellis made short work of the run-chase, Neil Spence (49) and Will Dawson (49 not out) both finishing one run short of their half-centuries and Chris Beaird contributing an unbeaten 41 as the home side reached their victory target in just 27.1 overs. Kevin Ellis, with 43 not out, was Melton’s top scorer but opener Chris McKay scored 37 and young Saxon Earley a good 20. Craig Wilson (5-1-37-1) and Caitlin Ellis (9-1-60-1) were Melton’s wicket-takers and 12-year-old Corey Rushton had a good senior debut behind the stumps.

Another young wicketkeeper stood out in the C Team’s 44-run victory over Hingham. Oli Leinster took two excellent catches and was bright and busy around the stumps, helping to dismiss the visitors for 129 in reply to Melton’s 173-6. In fact, although it was Jonathan Ellse’s patient 46 and yet another fifer from Leo DeSalis’ (8-1-31-5) that took the plaudits, it was the performance of the younger players that took the eye. As well as Leinster there was Sam Johnson’s 33 that featured some well-struck boundaries and plenty of good running added to 2 catches, one an excellent caught-and-bowled and brother Ben’s 16 runs that included a sumptuous 4 off his legs - the shot of the day - plus 1-19 in his 5 overs. Duncan Greenslade scored 24 and Clive Rennie 19 not out but it was his 2-14 in 8 overs in tandem with DeSalis that helped restore some control after David Fenner (23) and Daniel Fenton (34) had got the visitors’ innings off to a blistering start with 70 in just 13 overs.

Melton felt the Payne once again on Sunday as Swaffham’s Jasper emphasised just how much he likes batting at Melton Park with a second unbeaten century in just over a week. This time he hammered 145 to go with his 153 scored against the first team, making it an aggregate of 298 without being dismissed! Swaffham’s total of 282-6 was helped by Alex Payne (35) and Ian Walsh (42). Maurice Dye then took 3-55 as Melton were dismissed for 197 (Ben Mann 63, Matt Clarke 45)

The U15s producing a below-par performance in the ECB Cup County Semi-Final, losing to old rivals Rocklands by 6 wickets. Sam Johnson again took the honours with the bat, scoring an unbeaten 33 in Melton’s 123-8 but Melton’s bowlers struggled with their line and length and conceded 33 extras as opposed to 16 conceded by Rocklands. Andrew Thresh, with 31, Jamie Taylor with 29 and Jed Bilverstone with 24 not out saw the home side to a deserved victory. The U13s also lost, in the final over, at Swardeston who chased down Melton’s 116-2 (Harrison Cunningham 33 retired, Henry Marsh 29 not out) thanks to Dylan Herathge (30 retired) and Ciaran Lake (29 not out) but there were wins for the U11s (at home to Acle) and the U9s (at Sprowston).

Volunteers, volunteers volunteers!! – we need more volunteers to help our great club organise and run these great events! A lot of work goes on behind the scenes to put these events on and we need club members to put themselves forward to help do a bit on the day for both the Beer Festival (Friday night, Saturday & Sunday too) and the six a side.

There is an event down at the ground on the Friday night to officially open the nets, inviting those who have contributed, to come down and see what their generous donations has helped implement! As a result we will need assistance on the bar and selling boozy squares. It will also give those who have never seen it, a chance to witness the amazing Friday night sessions we as a club hold.

The Saturday night this year is a little easier as we don’t have a BBQ to run, however assistance behind the bar, selling boozy squares etc would still be very much appreciated.

Finally the six a side, we have moved it this year to make the Beer Festival better than its ever been and there are lots of jobs we need assistance with;

Umpires
Scorers
BBQ Cooks (Bacon Rolls from 8am and BBQ from 12ish)
PA Announcers
Clearing up in the morning before the 6 a side starts
Clearing up afterwards
Bar Cover
We also need more Boozy squares prizes, they don’t need to be Alcohol, we have received some very kind donations and need to keep adding to it so please donate anything you feel would be a good prize!

Please come forward and let us know your intentions, we are not asking you to do everything all day, just a bit here and a bit there! Please don’t just read this post, let us know what you can help with!

Thanks

The Fundraisers!
