In-form Danny Haynes ensured Wisbech Town completed a swift Cambs Tucker League Division One seven-wicket triumph over Waresley.

Waresley were dismissed for 160 in 43.4 overs on Saturday, Gary Freear taking 4-41 off eight overs and overseas player Tom Meyrick 3-37.

Haynes then hammered the home bowlers for 15 fours in his 84 not out, which came off just 67 balls, as second-placed Wisbech cruised home at 164-3 in just 23.5 overs.

The previous weekend Haynes had hit an unbeaten 138 in a Rutland League win over Barnack.

Ash Vodnala picked up two weekend Man of the Match awards for March, who travel to Foxton next weekend. Firstly on Saturday they totalled 188-8 but a topsy-turvy relegation battle ended in frustration at Warboys, who hung on at 127-9.

Toby Nulty took 3-9 after Kiwi Vodnala battled away for a top-score of 77 in the basement encounter, which saw March come back from an awkward 17-4.

Warboys staged a 16-over last wicket rearguard action.

Then the Sunday Crows picked up back-to-back wins when avenging an earlier season defeat to Ufford Park, with a 27-run Rutland League Division 2 victory at The Avenue.

Vodnala struck 42 runs off 63 balls to break through the 1,000-run barrier for the season.

Former Sunday skipper Ben Pyle scored 32 runs off 46 deliveries, as March posted 155 all out. Opener Andy Wright also hit 22.

The visitors were then shot out for 118, with skipper Toby Nulty taking 3-15 with his leg-breaks, Vodnala 3-31 with his off-spin and Wright 2-43 with his seamers.

A 67-run fourth wicket partnership was the highlight as the 2nd XI lost by 22 runs at The Avenue to Thriplow in CCA Senior League Division 1.

Leading run-scorer Steve Hinson continued his good form with seven boundaries, including one ‘six’, in his 51, with Rob Tombs cracking seven fours and two sixes on his way to 58.

March were bowled out for 184, with Richard Green adding 16 and Curtis Oldroyd 15 not out.

Thriplow had made 206-9 thanks to No3 Alistair Cliffe scoring 107, but was dropped several times. Veterans Green and Adrian Bussey shared six wickets – the off-spinner taking 3-68 and Bussey 3-63.
