Chatteris beat Madingley to make it successive wins in CCA Division Two





In-form Chatteris made it back-to-back wins in CCA Division Two at the weekend with a four-wicket victory at home to Madingley.

After winning the toss and electing to field, Chatteris found the going tough at the Fullers Cricket Ground after a second-wicket stand of 67.

But once James Wood 2-36 dismissed both batsmen in quick succession the home side never looked back as wickets began to tumble at regular intervals.

Stuart Mills picked up 5-9 with the ball for March 2nds at the weekend.

Wood received valuable support from Peter Munns 2-15 from seven, Anthony Bamford 2-20 from seven and Harley Edmonds 2-12 from five as Madingley were bowled out for 157 in the 35th over.

Opener Ben Hollis was out for a duck in the Chatteris reply but it was only a blip as Bamford 16 and Charlie Munns 16 began to rebuild the home side's innings.

Connor Morton also chipped in with 19 but it was the Munns show as Peter hit an unbeaten 50 and Billy an undefeated 29 to see their side to victory with more than six overs to play.

The win leaves Chatteris sixth in the league standings but only 20 points off a top-three spot in the table.

Basement boys March Town 2nds picked up a welcome win in CCA Senior League 3 by beating high-flying Cottenham by five wickets.

The evergreen Stuart Mills did the damage with the ball as Cottenham were bowled out for just 101 from 26 overs.

Mills returned the figures of 7-2-9-5 to turn the game firmly in March's favour after an opening stand of 35 had left Cottenham well-placed for a big score.

But Mills had other ideas as he ripped through the bottom order, picking up four of the last five wickets to fall.

Harry Lefevre 2-25, Ross Clarke 1-17, Charlie Bradshaw 1-38 and Steve Impey 1-6 were also among the wickets for March.

Despite seeing Callum Duncan retire hurt and Ed Albutt falling without troubling the scorers, March were always in control with the bat.

Opener Geoffrey Kirby provided a solid base with 33 before Clarke struck 47 with the bat as the home side reached their target with five wickets and more than 16 overs to spare.

Wisbech Town 3rds remain rooted at the bottom of the 3 North table following a six-wicket reverse against Hemingford Park.

Batting first, Wisbech opener Robert Williams held the innings together with a brilliant knock of 65.

Williams received valuable support from Henry Gowler (19), Mark Buttriss (14), Amrish Bhatt (13) and Gavin Plume (12) as they posted a score of 150-8 from their 40 overs.

But it never looked like being enough despite an early burst of wickets from Shez Butt in the Hemingford Park reply.

Butt picked up 3-23 from his seven overs but Hemingford Park were home and dry with plenty of overs to spare.

In Junior League 5 North, March Town 3rds suffered a three-wicket defeat at home to league leaders Milton.

Ben Bullman (13), Martin Arrowsmith (16) and Gary Ashby (17) were the only players to score double-figures with the bat as the home side were bowled out for 84 inside 30 overs.

Charles Pooley and Oliver Ashby picked up two wickets each in the Milton reply but an unbeaten 35 from opener Andrew Staplehurst saw the visitors home.

It was a brave effort from March's third string, who sit sixth in the league standings with 44 points from their opening five league games.

St Ives Town & Warboys 4ths conceded their game with Wisbech Town 4ths.

The weather left Wisbech Town cricketers frustrated as their clash with Saffron Walden 2nds was abandoned at the weekend.

James Williams' side were well on top in the Cambs & Hunts Premier League Division One clash when the game was called off.

George Gowler picked up 4-17 from his 12 overs and Kieran Hayes 2-20 to leave Saffron Walden reeling on 48-7 when the heavens opened to bring an end to play.

March's Division Two clash at Cambridge NCI also fell foul of the elements and there was no play between Abingdon and Wisbech 2nds in Senior League One.

In Junior League 4 North, Chatteris 2nds had City of Ely 3rds in trouble on 61-5 when the weather curtailed play for the afternoon.
