Burwell suffered frustration in the Gibbs Denley East Anglian Premier League as rain intervened to leave them having to be content with a draw against Vauxhall Mallards.

It has been a difficult campaign for Burwell, but they were going great guns against the Mallards.

Andrew Bramley hit 141 and Ben Seabrook made 106 as Burwell reached 330 for 5.

Sam Rippington then took three wickets to leave Mallards on 55 for 4 in reply, but the weather meant the match ended in a draw, with Burwell earning 15 points and the Mallards collecting seven.

Michael Pepper had similar frustration as rain meant that Cambridge Granta drew at leaders Sudbury.

The No 3 batsman scored 152 not out off 147 balls, including 19 fours and four sixes as Granta declared on 277 for 8. Will Hales contributed 32.

But Sudbury had little opportunity to get going in reply, only reaching 10 for 0 before the rain arrived.

It meant that Cambridge Granta earned 13 points, and Sudbury got seven.
