GREAT Ellingham beat Wicklewood by five wickets.

Wicklewood won the toss and elected to bat. The Ellingham bowlers all performed admirably in the searing heat. Dodd (3-31), Empson (1-22), Standley (1-34) and B Glover (0-5) all bowled well.

Smith (5-26) bowled an excellent spell, ripping the heart out of the middle order and Dodd ended the innings with some typically hostile bowling. Wicklewood were dismissed for 152 with the penultimate ball of the innings.

In reply, Ellingham lost three wickets in their first 10 overs.

Kruger (20 no) joined S Drew (43 no) adding an unbroken 46-run stand to guide Ellingham home with 28 balls to spare.
