Leverington stay on top

Leverington returned to winning ways with a 93-run victory over Chatteris seconds to stay top of Cambs Junior 2A.

They batted first but were in trouble when Chatteris took two quick wickets. Leverington recovered thanks to a partnership of 95 between Jacques Steynberg 68 and James Dod 35.

Sam Embleton, playing his first game on Saturdays for the club, hit 19 and Leverington, who lost wickets at regular intervals, ended on 181-9. Best of the Chatteris bowlers was Keb Felton, four for 36.

Chatteris, who needed a win to go into second place, started the run chase slowly with just eight runs from the first nine overs. Aaron Cobb 1-12 and Ian Cooper 2-26 bowled an excellent line and length.

Chatteris kept losing quick wickets, apart from Felton 33 and were out for 88 with John Gill 3-17 and Simon Gilbert with three wickets from two maiden overs.

Leverington host Soham this week.
