Sheringham A maintained their promotion charge with an emphatic 155-run victory at home to Terrington in West Norfolk League Division Two.

After being put into bat Sheringham got off to a good start courtesy of openers Moy and M Hudson. With Moy particularly fluent the score moved on to 61 in the 16th over before he fell for an impressive 38.

Skipper Neave (13) and Hudson (37) fell as the scoring rate dropped, the score 95-3 after 27 overs.

This brought S Taylor and A Jenkins to the wicket. The pair batted sensibly to start with but with wickets in hand soon accelerated as the score moved along nicely.

Nonetheless, Sheringham finished with a pleasing score of 213-9 off their allotted 45 overs.
