Father and son Shaun and Sam Arthurton steered Great Witchingham back to winning ways with a six-wicket victory at Fakenham.

The hosts had chosen to bat first and after struggling to 89 for five, skipper Sean Cooper (45) and Joe Pipkin (48) led a recovery. They were both dismissed by Witches skipper James Spelman, who claimed a five-wicket haul, as Fakenham managed 198 for nine from 66 overs.

Spelman then led the way with the bat, reaching 50 for the fourth time in the league this summer and after a brief wobble, it was left to the Arthurtons, Sam (45no) and Shaun (54no), to lead Witchingham home in the 54th over.
