In Norfolk League Division Seven Great Melton C lost to Blundeston.

Having elected to bat, Melton C openers Vivek Sharma and Malcolm Howard kept the Blundeston opening bowlers, including, Elliott Gooch, at bay to compile a partnership of 30.

Gooch then removed three of Melton's young batsmen in quick succession. The middle order kept things ticking over with several good strokes played by George Ducker. The Melton innings closed in the 41st over for a total of 129 all out.

N Nobbs and G Talbot batted well and punished any bowling that strayed off line or length. Sharma got several deliveries to beat the outside edge during a promising spell.

Ben Fryer's in-swing eventually accounted for Nobbs when he was caught at backward point by Howard. However, this was to be the only breakthrough and Blundeston won the match in the 28th over.
