Saham Toney entertained Kirkley and Lowestoft Railway and recorded a convincing win by 138 wins.

After winning the toss Saham elected to bat and openers A Wood and M Thomas proceeded to put on a partnership of 238 enabling Saham to declare after 31 overs.

After missing the last couple weeks due to holiday A Wood looked like he hadn't been away as he proceeded to smash his way to 139 not out which included 26 fours. M Thomas was a bit more sedate as he reached 79 not out which consisted of 14 fours before the declaration came.

With the ball W Smart carried on his excellent recent form by claiming two early wickets before G Leggett got the wickets his bowling of recent weeks has deserved by claiming 5-13 off 4 overs. G Maxwell claimed 1-19 and W Dyer 1-21 in a very hostile spell as Kirkley were 100 all out.

This win moved Saham into second place in their league and this Saturday Saham visit third-placed Dereham.
