They added 114 for the fourth wicket as Wisbech piled up 306-9 in their 50 overs.

Freaar (2-0) also shone with the ball, while Jamie Gollands (40 from 38 balls, three sixes & 3-7) enjoyed a fine all-round day as Burwell were skittled for 130 (S. Rippington 2-27, S. Mutubaki 2-44).

In Division Two March Town are joint-top with Kimbolton.
