Thetford Cricket Club's first team travelled to Great Ellingham looking to pick up another win to add to their successful season - and they succeeded.
The home side won the toss and chose to bat on a hot day.
From ball one Thetford were on top with Phelps (1-42) causing problems throughout his tight spell of bowling.
This was aided from L Greyson who bowled a brilliant spell of bowling, troubling any batsmen in front of him, and he picked up two wickets (2-7).

Great Ellingham struggled to score with tight bowling, being bowled throughout the Thetford attack.
With M Terry (2-39) and L Conroy (0-39) troubling the home side's batsmen on a very green track which had a bit in it for seamers and spinners.

Thetford knew a stand would happen and this certainly did when D Allum and C Oxborough started to push the score on a very dangerous outfield causing runs to be leaked and brought the home side to 179-6 after their allotted overs.
Thetford were more than confident in chasing this score down with the batting they had in their eleven.
This confidence was easy to see when the openers S Richards and A Kerling hit consecutive boundaries all around the park, but unfortunately the impressive Richards fell for 22 when a debatable lbw decision was given.
Kerling then fell quickly also for a solid 28. The openers had certainly put Thetford in a great position after being 67 off 12 overs.
The Conroy brothers came to the crease and continued Thetford's quick run scoring.
Both of the batsmen hit the ball to all parts, causing Great Ellingham all sorts of problems.
The match was over 15 overs later with 12 overs remaining with R Conroy 52 not out and L Conroy 62 not out.
Another good all-round display from Town's cricketers.
