OLD Buckenham secured all 16 points in their first South Norfolk U17 Community League match against Great Ellingham who were put into bat and were always on the defensive.

Captain Daniel Skipper caught A Wharton off Duncan Osborne for seven.

After seeing off both opening bowlers, Great Ellingham at 26-1 off six overs looked well placed but the introduction of spinners Joe Lewis (1-7) and Kieran Brown (2-13) quickly changed the game.

Brown bowled Hawkins 13 and Lewis had Glover stumped by Ryan Thompson for nine. When Skipper caught Potter off Brown for four, it was left to Josh Downes and Jon Walton to concede just 10 runs off the last four overs.
