CROMER visited Gressenhall on Sunday with the regular mix of experience and youth the club relies on.
Electing to bat, Cromer raced away with Barrett taking 50 from a total of 66 in just eight overs. The fact that he slowed down was only due to opener Alex Craske making way for his brother James to help with the brutal treatment of Gressenhalls' attack.
Memories of three successive ducks were wiped away by Craske with a hard-hitting 46.
Countless times play was held up to look for the ball after yet another boundary scorched over the ropes. The pair put on 101 before Craske departed to let Barrett take centre stage again, claiming the first ton by a Cromer batsman this season.

Gressenhall's Dencham claimed six wickets.
Gressenhall made a good start in reply and scored steadily from Cromer's young bowlers before, after 31 overs, skipper Van Greuning decided that making a game of it went only so far and called upon his more trusted bowlers to close the match out with Gressenhall 49 runs adrift.
