CROMER entertained Dereham in the quarter-finals of the Lady Mary Trophy where they were asked to bat.

When he was dismissed he had made 75 runs from 72 balls (11 fours, two sixes.)
It was a superb opening stand between the Cromer pro and captain, whose brutal attack on the opposition opening bowlers moved Cromer's score forward rapidly.
Arendse continued to bat with freedom and made his third century of the season His innings ended when he was on 103. He faced 109 balls and hit 21 fours.
Thirteen overs remained after Arendse's wicket and from these 66 more runs were added.

Michael Warnes scored 28 from 26 balls and Richard Charlwood batted excellently to finish 34 not out.
Cromer posted a score of 260 from their 45 overs.
Garner was the main wicket taker with 4-35 from his nine overs.
Set a massive target of 261, Dereham made a stuttering start with only one of the top seven batsmen scoring over 20.
After 20 overs Dereham were 73-6. Lawrence was the only man to make a contribution from the top order. He was eventually out, caught Arendse off the bowling of Webster for 41.
Hoggert and Head halted the loss of wickets and put on 45 in five overs before Head was out for 30.
Hoggert stayed at the crease to the end of the Dereham innings, finishing 27 not out.
S Fletcher was the last man out, caught Brown of Charlwood's bowling.
Dereham ended 74 runs short, all out on 186.
All seven bowlers used took wickets with Craske, Brown and Webster taking two each.
Warnes perhaps deserved more than his one wicket after the tremendous pace he showed in his seven-over spell. It was possibly some of the quickest bowling that will be seen this season.
An excellent win for Cromer who progressed into the semi-finals of the competition.
