Garboldisham vs North Elmham – Norfolk League 2W

Having lost the second team game against to the weather it was with some trepidation that the 1st’s travelled the route to Garblodisham with the sky looking more and more ominous. On arrival a slight drizzle started but the wicket on that pitch was well covered and all would depend on the state of the outfield. Eventually it was agreed on a 3pm start with the match reduced to 30 overs per side. Whilst waiting it was found that water had crept under the covers of Garboldisham’s other pitch and their 1st team Alliance game was abandoned, then news arrived that their 2nd team Alliance game v Norwich had also been called off and so it was fingers crossed for this game. When read to start Elmham lost the toss again and Garboldisham elected

North Elmham v Northwold – NCL 2W

For only the second time this season North Elmham first team was at home this weekend hosting Northwold in this NCL 2W fixture, hoping to improve on the run of near misses they have endured so far. It was ominous that Northwold won the toss and choose to bowl first in a match reduced to 40 overs as rain was forecast for later,. Adrian Seymour struck early on when he had Olly Hall caught behind for a meager 7.  Elmham’s other opener of the day, Adam Hunt (78), then took control of the innings as he found partners in Iain Sinclair (21), Steve Shoesmith (21) and Marcus Webb (24) as North Elmham progressed the pace of the innings well to finish on a respectable 170-7 off their 40 overs.

North Elmham started brightly with the ball, picking up both of the Northwold

Beeston A v North Elmham A

Elmham Captain Josh Hall maintained his 100% record with winning the toss and chose to field.

Castle Acre v North Elmham – Norfolk League 2W

Hoping to build on their previous weeks win North Elmham were away at Castle Acre at the weekend. After the weeks rain hopes were not high for good conditions and the grey overcast on Saturday morning did nothing to alleviate the mood. Looking at the ground it was generally agreed that it was going to be a good toss to win and bowl first on, as the forecast conditions were always to be getting better and making use of the heavy atmosphere was looking the way to go. Unfortunately Elmham’s captain Ben Hunt lost the toss and Castle Acre had no hesitation in putting Elmham in to bat on a pitch that looked as though it would certainly be tricky in the early stages.

North Elmham v Gooderstone – Norfolk League 2W

Hoping to get their first league win of the season North Elmham hosted Gooderstone in what was their first home game of the season. Gooderstone won the toss and elected to bowl first on a fairly green pitch. The North Elmham openers James White (56) and Olly Hall (36) achieved what has been lacking so far this season, a good solid start to the innings on what was a slow outfield as they put on 90 for the first wicket before Hall mistimed a shot and was caught and bowled off the bowling of Owen Chandler. Not to be outdone White was soon on his way back as well when a mix up in the running left him stranded in the middle and easily run out. Gooderstone backed

Diss B v North Elmham A – Norfolk League 4SW

Elmham travelled to Diss B without their skipper and opening strike bowler Josh Hall. It started badly when Elmham lost the toss and were put into bat by Diss. Elmham’s openers were young Callum Futter (looking to build on his hundred of the previous week) and Justin Barker. Opening the bowling for Diss were William Ward and Tory Taylor. Young Callum Futter settled in quickly, and having survived a very early run out chance and a dropped catch, was soon piercing the field and regularly finding the boundary with some well-timed strokes. By the end of the 12th over the openers had pushed the score along to a very good 72. The next over though saw the first wicket fall, Justin Barker (24) being judged LBW, bringing a much improving Anthony
