Rain’s a pain for cricketers

Cricket in north Norfolk was hard hit by the rain at the weekend.

In the Norfolk Alliance Premier Division, second-bottom Cromer got five points from their rained-off fixture against Vauxhall Mallards A and in Division One, mid-table Bradfield suffered the same fate against Hales.

In Division Two, bottom club Sheringham limited their hosts Fakenham A to 175 for five and were 45 for one when rain intervened.

Ashmanhaugh, second-bottom in Division Three, had reached 99 for five against Kirkley & Lowestoft Railway when the match was abandoned.

In Division Four, mid-table Cromer A failed to bowl a ball against Mundford, and in Division Six, fifth-placed Bradfield A had the same misfortune against Mallards B.
