Dereham stunned Norfolk Alliance Division Two promotion challengers Downham A by claiming a 64-run victory in west Norfolk on Saturday.

After posting an impressive 236 for eight from their 46 overs, Dereham bowled Downham out for 172 to claim their fifth win of the season and move into the top half of the table.

Second XI captain Jonathan Crisp was utilised as a batsman and responded by top scoring with 49 after the early departures of David Lake and Neil Irons. His knock included two massive sixes.

Opener Duncan Hewitt made 34, while Jake Anema added 25 before Lee Hoggett bolstered the total with an unbeaten 43. The Hewitt-Crisp partnership was worth 80.

Anema claimed the key wicket of New Zealander Kurt Richards for 47 in the Downham reply and with the big gun gone, the middle order then folded at the hands of Hewitt. The part-time spinner claimed four wickets, while Gary Starling and Max Cheetham each picked up two as Dereham wrapped up victory in the 43rd over.

This Saturday, Dereham are at home to Fakenham A.
