DIVISION ONE

Frinton 147 lost to

Mildenhall 256-9 by 109 runs

Mildenhall reclaimed first place in Division One thanks to their comfortable win at Frinton on Saturday.

Batting first, openers Joe Reed and Steve Taylor put on 86 for the first wicket before Reed fell five short of his 50.

When Taylor went for 69, Mildenhall were 192-5 and it was left to the in-form Adam Trett to push his side forward with a third consecutive half-century.

In reply, it was Taylor who once again started well for Mildenhall, picking up two early wickets.

Frinton fought back well and at 95-2 the game was still very much in the balance. However, Tom Allen picked up two wickets, which along with the introduction of spinner Reed (2-15), induced a collapse from the home side.

n Jon Allen starred with bat and ball as Mildenhall II beat Exning by six wickets.

His bowling figures were 3-9, before going on to score 53 himself in the run chase.

Exning closed on 142-8, which was a total Mildenhall reached with two overs to spare.

n Opening the batting, Mildenhall III made 172-5 away at Elmstead.

Andy Zajac (3-61) was the pick of the Mildenhall bowlers, but it was not enough to prevent the hosts from chasing down the victory target with three overs left.

n Mildenhall IV were also beaten, with Halstead III running out victors.

Chasing 209-4, the Mildenhall batting line-up could not handle Halstead’s first-team bowler Freddie Staham (6-18).

They were eventually dismissed for 106, which was 103 runs short.

n Ash Clark’s century could not stop Mildenhall Sunday II from losing to Bury.

Clark scored 117, but the visitors won by three wickets off the final ball.
