Champions Leverington finished their first season in Cambs league Div 2A with a disappointing defeat by a much changed Longstanton team whose first team did not have a game.

Leverington won the toss and made a steady start with Glyn Wilson 22 and Simon Gilbert 40 but they then lost Jacques Steynberg 8 and James Dod 9 (by doing so he went past 500 runs for the season). Adam Fairbrother 42 not out, John Gill 19 and Aaron Cobb 12 not out gave Leverington a respectable score of 163 in their 45 overs.

Ian Cooper and Cobb kept it very tight with Longstanton only going at two runs an over for the first 12 overs. Cooper got both openers out before the score reached 35. Gill in his third over picked up a wicket. Leverington then missed some chances to get any more wickets as Longstanton eased home by seven wickets.
