Leverington made it five wins in a row with another convincing win by 120 runs against second placed Little Downham in Cambs Junior 2A on Saturday.

The league leaders lost the toss and batted for the first time this season. Adam Fairbrother 19 got Leverington off to a quick start but once he was out Leverington had to rebuild their innings with a partnership of 118 between Jacques Steynberg 60 and James Dod 103 not out. They made 225-5 in their 40 overs.

Little Downham started well as Leverington’s bowlers did not bowl the right line but, once they removed Gary Dewsbury for 28, they ran through the rest of their batting line up with Little Downham making 114.

Veteran John Gill was the pick with 4-38 and was well supported by Aaron Cobb and James Barnard with two wickets each.
