Norfolk League Division Seven leaders Martham visited Ashmanhaugh A and won the toss and elected to bat.

Mcleave was punishing the bowling and poor catching as he moved to his century, having been dropped three times. Fairbrother provided good support with a 50.

Martham declared on a excellent score of 286 as the rain came down and Mcleave looked at trying to get a result, finishing on 170 not out.

Ashmanhaugh started well and after the early loss of Sanders, Broughton and Jenkins moved the score on to 70. Jenkins (24) was run out but Broughton continued to bat decisively and was supported well by Nichols (24) and 14-year-old Matt Billing (24). Richie Broughton, 19, was finally out after completing his maiden ton for 104.

The final total of 228 was an excellent effort considering they only had three players in their line-up over the age of 19.
