HENRY Rosier returned from university to help Wisbech third team to a 63-run win against Chatteris thirds in CCA Junior Division 2A on Saturday.

Rosier top scored with 65 as Wisbech reached 225 for eight in their 40 overs and that means a call up for the first team this Saturday with Jack Hastings unavailable.

Opener Sam Darlow was in good form also with 59 and shared a good first wicket partnership with Laurence Twell 24. Nick Peck also hit 20.

Best of the Chatteris bowlers was Kevin Felton with three for 46, while Jake Kaval took 2-42 and Paul Foster 2-49.

In reply Chatteris did not get off to the best of starts losing two cheap wickets, but Mark Leach batted very well for his 72 before falling to 13-year-old Ryan Harnwell and got some support from Foster 29 as they finished on 162 for nine at the close.

Wisbech fourths lost by 82 runs against Castor in CCA Junior Division 4A.

Castor scored 185 for three off their 40 overs with Nick Drew picking up two wickets for 30 off eight overs.

Wisbech were struggling from the start and number eight Drew hitting 35 was the mainstay of their innings. Martin Knowles 14 and Martin Parrin 13 were the only other two batsmen to reach double figures as they were bowled out for 103.

On Sunday Wisbech firsts lost their John Wilcox Cup-tie by 10 wickets against the formidable Peterborough Town.

Only two Wisbech players were in action from the previous day’s game against March and they were bowled out for 84. Danny Emmington 28 and Jamie Gollands 23 top scored with Gary Freear out for a rare duck.

Town had few problems knocking off the runs in 17.3 overs with no loss.

Wisbech seconds also suffered with players due to the Wisbech Grammar School first XI v Old Boys game and lost by 53 runs to Castor seconds in Rutland League Division Five.

Castor scored 165 for seven with Jason Esser taking three for 28.

Wisbech were bowled out for 112 with Laurence Twell scoring 58.

Wisbech under 12 team beat Snettisham by four wickets.

Snettisham scored 86-1 off their 20 overs, Harry Drew took the wicket and Mitch Smith was the most economical bowler.

Wisbech then chased the score down for the loss of six wickets, Aaran Shipley top scored with 21 and Ethan English hit the winning runs with five overs to go.
