Skipper Cannon and decided to bat. Openers Bundock (25) and Mack quickly set about the Lowestoft attack with some strong hitting and solid defence to make 53-0 off the first 12 overs.

Mack and Cannon together showed no mercy to a faltering attack, running well between the wickets and punishing anything loose with some powerful striking. The 100 partnership came up in the 29th over and the pair batted on to notch up a memorable 210-run partnership which was finally ended when Cannon was caught at mid-on for 88 off 82 balls.

Man of the match Mack, after racking up a career first century, was dismissed for a fluid, powerful and highly impressive 130 off 143 balls.

In reply Lowestoft struggled to gain any momentum with the excellent Ash and Holroyd bowling tight lines. The four Aldborough bowlers took their cue and ripped through the Lowestoft resistance with spinner Knight ending with figures of 6-2-4-3 and swinger Ray Smith 5-1-9-3. Cannon ran out the final batsman with a direct hit.
