By Pete Woodhouse

Danny Haynes (pictured) carried his bat for a Sunday Wisbech Town ton.

The opening batsman notched an unbeaten 110 off 121 balls and hit 12 fours as Wisbech enjoyed a 150-run success at the expense of Oundle Town in Rutland League Division 1.

Haynes' effort plus 54 from number eight William Gowler, who smashed four sixes, rescued Wisbech from 135-6 and the pair put on 99 runs to close at 241-7 from their 45 overs.

The opening attack of Kieran Haynes 3-18 and Gowler 3-29 did the early damage. Joe Dunning, Brodie Ellis and Hamish McCulloch chipped in with a wicket apiece.

The Saturday first XI fell by 143 runs to Cambridge CC 2nds in Whitings League Division 1 and have now been overtaken by March in fifth position. Wisbech are on 221 points, three behind March.
