Saham Toney lost to Saxlingham at Saxlingham by 74 runs in Norfolk Alliance Division Two.
They will aim to improve when they entertain Garboldisham this Saturday.
With the hosts batting first Saham had control for the first 30 overs with S Pikethley (9-0-38-1) and P Norman (10-4-20-0) making run scoring difficult.
P Norman was the pick of the bowlers and must consider himself very unlucky to be wicketless.
