Chatteris stayed top of CCA Senior 3 with a seven-wicket win away from home at Eversden.

With a very damp wicket winning the toss was a must for Chatteris, and stand-in captain Andy Wool did just that. He decided to put the home side into bat and they struggled from the start with the ball not coming onto the bat at all.

Dom Platt took the first wicket in the 13th over with the score on just 16 and Eversden made very slow going, using up their 45 overs to finish on a paltry 112 for 9.

Best of the Chatteris bowlers was the ever youthful Pete Munns, finishing with three for 14 off his 12 overs. Dom Platt took two wickets, the second of them being helped with a great catch from Kurt Cunningham making up 30 yards to take a full-length dive and Joe Menarry also took two for 36.

The Cunningham brothers got Chatteris off to a flier again, with Kurt stumped for 45 just a couple of overs after younger brother Connor was out the same way for 38,

Chatteris lost just one other wicket as keeper Alex Platt (21no) steered them home with 12 overs to spare.

Chatteris thirds lost in CCA Junior 4A at Over by 98 runs on another wet and sticky wicket.

Chatteris won the toss but got no help from the wicket and the first wicket didn’t come till the 18th over with the score on 104.

Then 14-year old Jake Kaval ripped through the middle order just missing out on a hat-trick, but still taking three wickets in four balls, finishing with 3-25 from 8 overs. He was well supported by Ben Collett 3-54 and Les Connett 3-63.

Chatteris never got to grips with a wicket that deteriorated.

Collett opened well with a quickfire 24, but keeping up with the run rate wasn’t a problem, it was wickets in hand.

When the middle order were out for next to nothing it was down to 13-year-old Josh Fox coming in at number nine to show the senior players how to do it, with a well-worked 28, top scoring for the visitors.
