On winning the toss Elmham decided to bat against Shipdham A.

Nigel Raven, the experienced visiting skipper, tore into the Elmham top order with devastating effect.

With a mixture of good seam bowling and poor shot selection Elmham were reduced to 36 for seven. Home skipper Chris Palmer was joined by Andy Kay who batted well and the pair added 34 before Kay was bowled by Pyman for 24.

This left Palmer to try and push the Elmham total to a respectable level and 36 runs were added for the last two wickets before Mat Elmar was bowled and the Elmham innings closed on 112.
