Bad day for Old Bucks

PUBLISHED: 17:25 15 May 2008 | UPDATED: 14:31 14 July 2010

OLD Buckenham's poor early form continued with a crushing defeat at Norwich Wanderers.

The league looks as wide open as it has done for years with several good pros dominating many teams and Saturday was the day for Norwich's Lyndon Brown.

OLD Buckenham's poor early form continued with a crushing defeat at Norwich Wanderers.

The league looks as wide open as it has done for years with several good pros dominating many teams and Saturday was the day for Norwich's Lyndon Brown.

Wanderers made good of anything loose, and there was a fair bit of it as Buckenham's bowlers failed to continue the previous week's good work. Craig Beedon made 19 before being first man out, which brought Brown to the crease.

He made good partnerships with Littlewales (30) and Hipperson (19) but really cracked on in the last 10 overs.

Brown was crucially dropped in the 80s on the boundary and Wanderers added 70 in the last 10 overs, Brown finishing on 120 not out with eight fours and six sixes. Ranabir Nath finished with 4-59, while Ali Beales finished a decent debut with 1-28.

In reply, Bucks started well, Jon Fudge the first to go for 31, with the score on 98. Nath and Perry then added a further 36 before the fun started. Perry lost his off- stump, bowled by Brown for a well-made 64 and this triggered a collapse. Ranabir Nath was run out for 17 before Brown came on and destroyed Bucks.

They lost their last nine wickets for just 24 runs. In truth, he was just too good as he took 6-30 with Jez Elliott 2-18.

Old Buckenham B beat Frettenham by 82 runs. Joe Perry and Ian Pape made a solid start, putting on 49 before Pape was out to an excellent slip catch for 15.

Chris Palmer (7) and Perry (37) were out soon after and Simon Newbery (27) and Jaime Lincoln (19) progressed the total to 119 before a mix-up saw Lincoln run out.

This brought 15-year-old Alex Hainsby, 15, to the crease and he batted with great maturity for 26no in Bucks' total of 182.

Sid Asim (2-4) and Mike Banham (4-11) destroyed the lower order, 100 all out.
