Mildenhall won by 106 runs

MILDENHALL took advantage of some dropped catches as Reynolds and Reed put on 182 for the first wicket before Reynolds was caught by Starling off Rutterford’s bowling for 91. Reed completed his century but was caught by Collins off Grant.

Shepperson and Baugh both scored 30s before a final destructive over saw Lwana score 30 to take the total to 321-4.

Woolpit’s reply also started with a century partnership but, on that total, Rutterford was bowled by Shepperson for 40, who also dismissed Northcote for 79.

Only Large (31) made any further contribution as Woolpit were restricted to 215-9, losing by 106 runs.


Hadleigh II 187-7(5) Woolpit II 191-2(18)

Woolpit won by eight wickets

HADLEIGH batted first and lost an early wicket as Tim Parker caught and bowled Abdul for 10. Parker continued to trouble the batting, his spell of 15 overs costing only 36 and picking up two wickets.

At the other end, Deeley also bowled tightly taking 2-21 and James Firth returned to pick up two further wickets as Hadleigh were held to 187-7.

Woolpit has little difficulty in chasing the total as the opening pair of Daniel (79) and Eeles (55) took them close to the target before Andy Newcombe and James Firth saw them to an eight-wicket victory.



Woolpit Academy 123(2) Mildenhall II 124-3(20)

Mildenhall won by seven wickets

THE Academy side, with an average age of 15, found it hard going against a much more experienced Mildenhall.

Having been put into bat, Woolpit lost three quick wickets before Guy Brookman smashed a 50 in only 27 balls, in an innings containing 10 fours and a six.

Zac Grayling supported and remained unbeaten on 28 as wickets fell around him and Woolpit were bowled out for 123.

Meyer and Francis bowled well in Mildenhall’s reply, Francis clean-bowling three of the opposition for 41, and Meyer unlucky to have two chances dropped off his bowling.

After their spells, although Edwards bowled tidily on his debut, Taylor (45) and Grinling (38) batted through for a seven wicket win to Mildenhall.


Woolpit under-15s v Copdock

COPDOCK started at fine pace with some good batting and wayward bowling by Woolpit’s opening bowlers.

A fine run-out by Jordon Peacock checked the scoring slightly but Willkinson scored 44 before he was run out and Harwood (40no) pushed the score on.

Matt Barton took a wicket but Ryan Newcombe proved the most economical going for 20 off his four overs. Copdock ended on 155-3 in their 20 overs.

A change in the batting order saw Cameron Harrington opening with Rob Wilson and they got the innings off to a flying start against a good Copdock bowling attack. Harrington retired on 50 and Wilson on 53.

Skipper Deeley chipped in with a quick 20 allowing Grayling and Bradwell to see Woolpit past the total midway through the 18th over.
