OLD Buckenham's dismal run continued as they were outplayed in all departments at Lowestoft on a windy and cold league game.

Bucks now are rooted to the bottom of the Alliance Premier Division table.

OLD Buckenham's dismal run continued as they were outplayed in all departments at Lowestoft on a windy and cold league game.

Bucks now are rooted to the bottom of the Alliance Premier Division table.

However, there is undoubted talent in the side and they must try to score more freely in the middle overs, starting with the next game at home against mid-table Acle.

Putting Lowestoft in proved a poor decision for Bucks as they leaked runs from the start, bowling both sides of the wicket.

South African Mostert and Sims eased to a opening partnership of 99 in the first 25 overs.

Despite continuing to change the bowling, Bucks got no better as catches went down and one or two fielding errors crept in.

Austin grabbed the wicket of Sims lbw for 51 and was unlucky not to have the dangerous Bishop in the same manner two balls later.

As the 50 overs approached, Lowestoft stepped on and Mostert completed his unbeaten 100. Austin grabbed two late wickets to finish with 3-49. Lowestoft totalled 253-4.

In reply, Lowestoft managed to create the kind of pressure Buckenham couldn't.

They bowled good lines and bowled to their field as Buckenham were strangled for runs.

After losing Fudge for no score, Buckenham had their customary mid-innings collapse which is now becoming the most worrying thing. From 31-1, they went to 50-6 in the space of 11 overs.

Peter Sims did the damage, taking 5-29 with his seamers.

It was left to the two Austins and Heaney to shut up shop and make sure it wasn't four losses on the bounce and finished with a losing draw on 117-8.
