Chatteris had a good 55-run victory at home on Saturday against Cambridge St Giles and it was down to a 150 stand from the Cunningham brothers.

The visitors won the toss and strangely put Chatteris into bat on a very hot day, and the home side scored 28 off the first three overs. Older brother Kurt was stumped for a well worked 56, but younger brother Conner (122) had good support from keeper Alex Platt (40). Chatteris ended on 253-5 from 45 overs.

Chatteris gave away just 20 runs in the first 10 overs, before a quickfire 82 from number 4 Doel, but the ever youthful Andy Wool had him caught at point. The medium pace of Pete Munns 4-41 was backed up by Andy Wool 2-42 and Ant Bamford 3-47. Chatteris now move above St Giles to fifth in the league.

The second team won on Saturday and Sunday, no scores at present.
