Great Melton U11s (29-1) beat Thetford B U11s (26 all out) by 6 wickets at Thetford in the South Norfolk Community League

A developing Thetford B team were no match for Great Melton U11s losing their South Norfolk Community League game by 6 wickets. With only 7 available players at the start of the game Thetford elected to bat but were quickly under pressure by the accuracy of the Melton bowlers. Wickets were shared by Sammy Belderson (2-2-0-1) Charlie Hosmer (1-0-3-2) and Danny Wright (2-2-0-2) with Adit Raje taking a wicket in his first game of the season, expertly snapped up behind the stumps by George Alcock.  A Thetford player batted twice to make up the numbers and he and home “Captain Morgan” (Not Eoin) worked hard to take their score to 26 all out.

Despite the loss of an early wicket the Melton reply was rapid and the total was achieved with 6 wickets to spare thanks to good unbeaten knocks from Charlie Hosmer & Evan Mercer.

Once the total was reached the teams carried on playing and there were good cameos from Nicholas Conway, Henley Turner and George Alcock at the tail. 

Although this was a one-sided game the Thetford players played with great enthusiasm and smiles on their faces and all players of both sides enjoyed their morning.
