Kurt Cunningham, who used to play for March a few seasons ago, won the game with a fantastic 62 no, including 13 fours, well supported by Ant Bamford (28no) in their 97-1. The win has moved Chatteris above March in the league.

March 3rds’ Adam Conyard took five catches - all square of the wicket - in a CCA Junior League Division 2N 60-run loss at Doddington by Wisbech 3rds, who set 179-7. Veteran opening batsman Dennis Furnell made 33 for March.
