West Norfolk derby honours in the Norfolk Alliance went to Downham Town in emphatic fashion.

Town built on the previous week’s first win of the Premier Division season to despatch local rivals North Runcton by 10 wickets.

Ian Harrison (4-27) and Chris Sharp (3-7) did most of the damage as the hosts were skittled for 78 inside 31 overs.

Openers Tom Tansley (51) and Harrison (23) were untroubled in the reply, scooting through to their target without loss in little over 15 overs.

Stow slumped to a second consecutive loss in the top-of-the-table clash in Division One against Acle.

Stow captain Keith Thomson chose to bowl on a wet-looking wicket and the decision proved justified as Acle slumped to 6/2 and were still rocking at 42/3.

But Thomas Wilson batted deep into the innings to make 75.

Josh Larner (50) shared a crucial 108-run partnership as Stow failed to help their cause with a below par display in the field. Stow gained the eighth wicket off the last ball as Acle tried to get their final batting point but ended on 223/8.

Stow started their chase positively with Warren Bowman (57) continuing his good form.

But, from 42/1, Stow slipped to 114/6. The arrival of captain Thomson steadied things and he started to up the run rate with some powerful shots and good running with George Cook.

Thomson reached 56, however, he ran out of partners as his team’s innings ended on 182.

Captain Ash Corbett top-scored for Downham Town A in their 60-run win over Bungay in Division Three. He hit 44 and opener Jack Gould 42 in the home total of 218/6.

David Grady and Alex Vincent took three wickets each as Bungay capitulated for 158.

A 57-run late order stand between Pete Brassett (34) and Martin Saddleton (30) was not enough to stave off defeat for Dersingham at Garboldisham A. Jack Southgate also weighed in with 68 to help the visitors post 202/9 from their 45 overs.

But 104 from James Worby steered the hosts through to a five-wicket win with six overs to spare.

A middle-order 40-run blast from Otte Esse helped Stow A to 106/9 but, despite three-wickets each for Simon Cooke and Kieran Knott as seven Sheringham batsmen scored only 14 runs between them, the Shannocks battled through to 108 for a three-wicket win.

Bircham romped to a 146-run win over Beccles A in Division Five. Opening pair Will Pillinger (95) and Shaun Fisher (58) scored the bulk of their 248/7 and three wickets apiece for Paul Lough and Carlos Greeves saw their opponents reach just 102/9.

Carl Smith impressed with bat and ball in Hockwold’s 108-run win over Thetford Town A in Division Six.

He scored 74 of their 265/6 total and then grabbed 6-42 as the visitors were bowled out for 157.

Roy Bland (80) and Anthony Ruddick (55) also scored well for the runaway league leaders.
