NORTH Elmham returned to winning ways after travelling to Sprowston Rec on Saturday to take on Old Catton B.
Elmham were made to field on a hot afternoon. Old Catton made slow progress against the Elmham new ball bowlers Iain Sinclair and Ant Keeble.
Grant King and Andy Kay took up the attack and both struck twice as Old Catton soon became 36 for four.
Christo Slabbert replaced King and soon got the ball to swing, taking two wickets in his seven-over spell.

With 10 overs to go Old Catton were 89 for six. King, who had earlier forced Hooper to retire hurt, was reintroduced when he returned to the crease at the fall of the Billings wicket, bowled by Sinclair.
King and Sinclair wrapped up the innings as Old Catton were all out for 116 with King taking four for 17 from his seven overs. Sixteen-year-old Josh Hall took an excellent catch at mid-wicket to assist King in taking the wicket of T Burke.

After tea Elmham set about the Old Catton innings with gusto, King being very severe on the bad ball as he raced to fifty from 38 balls faced.
Stephan Malherbe struggled to find his usual fluent timing but eventually came to grips with the council prepared pitch and the pair knew that the target was to get to 116 then score a boundary to collect an extra batting point. This was achieved in the 17th over with King undefeated on 70.
North Elmham next play back-to-back games against league leaders Blundeston.
