Leverington lost for the second game running away at Little Downham.

On a wicket that seemingly had little preparation the toss was crucial and Leverington lost batting first.

With the ball not getting up and moving sideways and with a long outfield, the batsmen found it impossible to get away.

Throughout the order batsman knuckled down trying to build scores but eventually could only amass 88-8 off their 40 overs.

I Cooper (11), J Gill (14), J Paul (16) and J Dod (24) reached double figures for Leverington.

Dropped catches were again all too common during the opposition innings as the game went close.

John Gill produced sensational figures of 5-4-1-4 but unfortunately defending such a low score was in vain for Leverington.
