Saham Toney entertained Swardeston B and won by five wickets in their Alliance Division Two clash.

This weekend Saham travel to Saxlingham.

Winning the toss Saham elected to bowl first and B Smart produced two brutal deliveries to leave the visitors 2-2 with keeper D Sims taking two excellent catches.

Saham continued to take wickets at regular intervals but the thorn in their side was opener J Olpin who scored 98 out of his side's 184-9.

Unfortunatley J Olpin was run out two short of a ton. B Smart was the pick of the Saham bowlers with an excellent spell of 10-2-21-4.

He received good support from W Dyer (7-1-18-0), S Pikethley (6-0-28-0) and D Ellis (11-0-47-0) who can all consider themselves unlucky not to have taken a wicket. I Lovick (1-36) and P Sims (2-32) were the other wicket takers.

In response, Saham got off to a solid start with openers B Smart (36) and D Sims (19). Further batsmen S Pikethley (42), A McGeorge (32) and P Norman with a quick-fire 25 ensured Saham reached their target with 10 overs and five wickets to spare.
