Action from Denver's West Norfolk League Division One Cup win over Northwold.

Only eight local matches managed to beat Saturday’s wet weather but there were centuries in two of them.

Both of them came in the Premier Division of the Norfolk Alliance, with contrasting fortunes for West Norfolk’s two teams.

Downham Town and Stow went into the day side by side in the league table but they finished with Stow back in the bottom two and Town four places above them.

Fakenham’s Chad Bowes (130no) and Luke Findlay (80) rattled up an opening stand of 200 on their way to a winning draw at Stow.

Although Stow avoided defeat, their 127-4 reply to Fakenham’s 226/1 yielded only two points.

There was better news for Downham, even though they also had to settle for a share of the points after failing to dislodge the final Cromer Town batsman.

Pat Yates hit an unbeaten 113 and, with Nick Kelly (90no), shared a club record unbroken third-wicket stand of 230 in the hosts’ 246/2.

Kelly then returned 4-45 but the Seasiders hung on to see out their overs with 197/9.

In Division Three, Downham Town A also failed to finish off their opponents’ batsmen but this time it made no difference as they overhauled Swaffham’s 127/9 opening innings score with 128/6.

Ian Stacey top-scored with an unbeaten 42 as Town moved out of the bottom two and dented Swaffham’s promotion challenge in the process.

It was cup day in the West Norfolk League with Denver’s Ben Watts taking the day’s bowling honours.

He took 6-12, including five clean bowled, as the hosts saw off Northwold in Division One.

James Harper hit an unbeaten 42 of the winning 55/1 total.

Paul Dunger was Division Two’s top bowler but his 5-18 for Fakenham 3rds was not enough to avoid defeat against Gooderstone.

Michael Herbert hit a half-century in Snettisham 2nds’
83-run win at Castle Rising 2nds but there was disappointment for Bircham 2nds, despite an eight-wicket win over Denver 2nds.

They failed to submit their scorecard and saw the result reversed with their victims taking the two match points.
