FRINTON'S cricketers are riding high at the top of the embryonic East Anglian Premier League table after a 50-run success against Burwell and Exning.

Saturday's success came at Ashlyns Road and it means Mike Comber's side are now the only team to have won all three matches so far. Four others have won twice.

After losing the toss and being put into bat, Frinton finished on 225 for five after 43 overs.

Burwell were then skittled for 147.

The coastal side were indebted to key batting performances from Blaine Bannister, who finished unbeaten on 79, opener Michael Griggs (45) and Ashley Watson (41).

Bannister's fine knock included eight fours and a six and came from 95 balls.

It was his partnership with former Norwich man Watson that really lifted Frinton's total, rocketing them from 84 for three to 198 for four.

Opener Tom Sinclair earlier chipped in with 21 but there were single-figure scores for Miguel Machado (nine not out), Comber (eight) and former skipper Kyran Young (0).

Andrew Bramley was Norwich's top bowler, finishing with three for 37 from his eight overs, and there were also wickets for Jamie Seabrook and Josh Arksey.

In reply, Burwell were always up against it and all out for 147.

Opener Tom Jagot scored the majority of those runs, amassing 73, while only two others managed double figures - Simon Donald (19) and Sam Rippington (16).

Seven others finished in double figures.

There were two four-wicket hauls for Frinton bowlers.

Hero Bannister took four for 30 from six overs and Dulanjala Mendis managed four for 30 from seven overs. Dan Carter also claimed a victim.

Frinton's 25-point haul took them to 75 points.

Copdock and Old Ipswichian and Sudbury both have 57 and Swardeston 56.

Intriguingly, Frinton's next match is at home to Copdock on Saturday (11am start).
