Swanton Morley A, second in West Norfolk League Division Five, ended top of the table Necton's unbeaten record.
Necton invited Swanton Morley to bat and soon reduced them to 20-22 with openers Peter Ellis and Arthur Lake back in the pavilion. However a steady 50 partnership between Gary Whiteside and Barry Green took Swanton Morley to 70 before Whiteside was out for 19 in the 25th over. Tight Necton bowling prevented Swanton Morley from accelerating the scoring, and when Barry Green was out for 34 it was left to David Powell (25 not out) to accumulate as many runs as possible. Swanton Morley's innings ended on 131-7.
Swanton Morley captured an early wicket as the Necton opener Scholey was out hit wicket attempting a hook shot against Ryan Hixson. Scott Evans also collected two early wickets to leave Necton 24-3.
