Bowler proves a menace to opponents

Jeffrey Douglas was the leading light for Foxton as they clinched a six-wicket win over Wisbech Town in Whiting & Partners Cambs & Hunts Premier League, Division One.

The left-arm orthodox bowler proved to be a menace for Wisbech, who had won the toss and elected to bat.

Douglas skittled out the top of the Wisbech order, having Sam Albutt caught by David Fagan for three, Josh Bowers caught by Alex Hooley for a duck and then getting Paul Edgeller caught by Fagan for six.

It left Wisbech on 16 for 3, with Steven Smith getting the first of his two wickets by having Gary Freear caught by Fagan for two.

Douglas then had James Williams (13) caught by Yannick Elliot to reduce Wisbech to 34 for 5, and he finished with figures of four for 30.

The visitors were all out for 83.

It was not quite a procession to victory for Foxton though, as they lost four wickets in reply, but Craig Park (21no) and Fagan (19no) combined to take them to victory with 85 for 4.

James Mynott maintained his impressive early-season form to guide Histon to a three-wicket win over Eaton Socon.

Mynott smashed 11 fours and three sixes to make 101, including an 87-run fourth-wicket stand with David Piggott, who finished with 71.

It helped Histon end their innings on 306 for 7.

Sean Stevenson, Ben Leach and Will Brown took two wickets apiece for Histon as they bowled Eaton Socon out for 268 to seal their third win of the season.

Sawston & Babraham clinched a seven-wicket win over Kimbolton.

The visitors batted first and made 176 for 4, but Sawston chased down the target to reach 179 for 3 to seal their fourth triumph of the campaign.
