Cromer were in a low-scoring Norfolk Alliance Premier Division match at Acle, where the teams seond and third from bottom produced just 139 runs between them with 19 wickets going down.

Cromer were all out for 69, Paul Newman claiming five for 15, Shaun Roberts four for 13, then saw Michael Warner take six for 32 in vain as Acle scraped home with 70 for nine to win by one wicket.

Cromer A, however, are champions of Division Five after their 52-run home win over Mallards B. Having made 154, Cromer A bowled out their visitors for 102.

In Division One, Bradfield had a winning draw at home to Hales. Bradfield made 161 for seven and had Hales on 128 for eight at the close.

Sheringham (129 for seven) saw visitors Stow (230 for five) earn a winning draw with William Denning making 59no and Dammika Perera 64 for Stow.

Ashmanhaugh's game at Dersingham in Division Three was a weather victim, while in Division Four, Aldborough were relegated after losing to visitors Old Buckenham A by seven wickets.

Aldborough made 175 for five against their visitors' 177 for three (Ben Askew 52).

In Division Six, third-placed Bradfield A suffered the frustration of a washout at Mundford A.

The league has two more matches before it ends the season.

In Norfolk League Division Two, Aylsham St Giles' game with Happisburgh was rained off and Overstrand (73) lost at Norwich Bystanders (74 for two).

In Division Four, Ashmanhaugh A (85) lost at home to Drayton A (86 for two) while Albborough A (103) lost at Great Yarmouth A (176).

Happisbugh A were denied by the rain at home to Rollesby A, but in Division Seven, Bacton Sabres (119 for four) won at Acle B (116).

In Division Eight, Reepham & Salle hit the league's highest score of the day, 300 for six, against visitors Blundeston A (116).

Paul Minns made 93, Simon Harwood 73 and Danny Tipple 52no as R&S romped home by 184 runs. They are third in a very close section.
