DEREHAM picked up their second successive victory with a six-wicket win at Saxlingham to move out of the bottom two in Norfolk Alliance Division Two. Tom Head was a key figure, claiming six wickets.

Having opted to bowl first, Dereham had a fortunate start as Jake Anema's first ball loosener was caught by Joe Marczewski, writes Phil Banyard.

Gary Starling kept things tight with an excellent opening spell, but Saxlingham put on 63 for the second wicket.

Tom Head then made the breakthrough as David Lacey danced down the wicket and was stumped by Neil Burrage.

From there it proved to a be procession as Head's slow bowling rattled Saxlingham and their batsmen perished to a succession of big shots.

Head went on to take six wickets as Saxlingham stumbled to 95 for nine, Max Cheetham also claiming two victims in an economical spell.

A frustrating last-wicket partnership of 24 ensued, but Starling returned to wrap up the innings with his first delivery, Saxlingham being bowled out for 119 in the 41st over.

Dereham lost Marczewski and Anema early in their reply, but Duncan Hewitt and David Lake steadied the ship before Hewitt was dismissed for 29.

Lee Hoggett adopted an aggressive approach and smashed a quick 30 to bring the scores level, before he was out trying to hit a six in order to gain an extra batting point.

It was left to Lake to hit the winning runs in the 26th over as he finished with an accomplished 32 not out, including five fours.

This Saturday, Dereham are at home to Saham Toney.
