HALES A travelled to Winterton on Saturday in Norfolk League Division Four and were put into bat after losing the toss.
The Hales batsmen made slow work of scoring runs, but with the occasional boundary the score soon started to tick along.
Mark Minns was unlucky to be given out, and Specsavers may well get some more business before Saturday. Paul Bassingthwaighte was eventually caught at third man for a dogged 47, with a late flourish from 14-year-old Harry Baugh of eight not out. The visitors finished on 101 all out.
Alex Taylor took the first wicket of the Winterton innings thanks to a great catch from Tom Watts. Lewis White finished his first spell with a double wicket maiden, to leave the home team on 32-3.

Then left-arm spinner Matthew Plummer came into the attack and took a wicket in each of his first three overs in a display of unreadable spin bowling that left the batsmen bamboozled.
With the result teetering, the visitors felt aggrieved as a series of unsuccessful lbw appeals were turned down. The hosts passed their target with three wickets to spare.
