Improved display from Sheringham CC

Sheringham entertained second placed Garboldisham in Norfolk Alliance Division Three.

After winning the toss and batting first Sheringham made a positive start.

M Hudson and R Sturgess (27) helped the home side reach 100-2 at drinks, a much improved show on the batting efforts of previous weeks. However old problems surfaced again with a collapse, leaving Sheringham 145 all out.

Hudson 60, was further supported by D Coslett (27), but nobody else reached double figures.

Spinner Sturgess struck early in the Garboldisham reply, and followed that up with a controlled spell of bowling that the visitors couldn't get away.

Having taken 4-21, the game was in the balance.

However, with Sturgess seen off Garboldisham steadied the run chase, and ended up getting home comfortably by five wickets.
