Bradenham Cricket Club celebrated a record-breaking weekend in which two players hit centuries.

For Bradenham A in their Alliance Division Five match with Brooke A, openers Mike Taylor and Kyle Goodge set a team record of 187 for the first wicket, Taylor making 124 with eight sixes and seven fours, making the third highest score by an A teamer in league cricket. He was caught going for another six. Goodge was out for 84 which included nine boundaries. On Sunday, Rob Thurley hit 103 off Narborough in the Mid Norfolk League.

In Division One of the Alliance, Bradenham lost to Sprowston by six wickets, chosing to bat first but encountering excellent bowling from Biswas who had two men out for no runs scored. Marcus Evans showed excellent application, batting two and a half hours for 69, allowing other batsmen to contribute, Mark Hunter with 31 and Stlworthy 18 to total 151.

Bates had Sprowston skipper Glozier caught for one but the other opener Ahmad was dropped on nought who, after Bates had claimed another wicket, with Murrell put Sprowston in a strong position. Ahmed made 81 as Sprowston won by six wickets but Bradenham (five points) scored more points than the other teams at the bottom of the division.

Bradenham A, for all their efforts, ended with a frustrating 16 points but remain in second place, two points ahead of Cromer.

Bradenham A made only 100 in the first 23 overs but totalled 262 for four (Ian Moody 25 not out).

Brooke defended well and with Brett Gates (three for 17) and Chad Balluza (two for 42) bowling well harboured no real aspirations of victory, crawling to 177 for five in the face of some extremely generous and attacking field positions.

Sunday's top-of-the-table clash resulted in a 31-run victory.

Thurley and Andy Wilton (13) put on 58 for the first wicket then Thurley dominated assisted by some lusty blows from Ashley Stolworthy (19) in a 181 total.

Bradenham's opening bowling combination of Ashley Stolworthy (two for 12 off seven overs) and Kyle Goodge (four for 33 from 10) ripped the heart out of the Narborough card.
