Wisbech Town gained a maximum 25-point Cambs Tucker Premier victory when crushing St Ives by 132 runs and are a point behind leaders March.

Wisbech posted 243-6 with county batsman Gary Freear hitting an unbeaten 97 and Jack Hastings 52 staging a recovery with a stand of 150 for the sixth wicket.

Sam Albutt and Danny Haynes both scored 31. Freear added 50 with Haynes.

St Ives were dismissed for a ‘Nelson’ 111 after being reduced to 9-5, with Kiwi Bradley Perrett snaring 3-15 off 12 overs and Craig Johnson starring with 6-44 off 13, plus a run out.

Wisbech skipper Alan Burton said: “Happy days. They were never really in it and it was a good all-round performance.

“We lost the toss but would have batted anyway, and the ball didn’t really swing. Sam and I added 50, then we were out and lost a couple more wickets.

“Gary and Jack rebuilt the innings when St Ives let themselves down in that period where we got back into it, and we never let them back in.”

Next weekend’s game is at home to Sawston.
