March Town Cricket Club ended their 2021/22 campaign in disappointing fashion as Peterborough crowned champions ahead of Wisbech

More news, no ads


March Town CC conceded the last match of their campaign at Peterborough Town on Sunday in Rutland League Division 1.

It means the 20 points on offer went to Peterborough, with March penalised 30 points.

The result both confirms that Peterborough will be champions ahead of Wisbech Town, provided that Peterborough do not concede their final game at home to Barnack next Sunday, and that March will finish in the bottom and eighth position.

With the season drawing to a close, there were some impressive statistics on show from Fenland players.

In terms of their total numbers of runs scored, the Wisbech pair of wicket-keeper Josh Bowers with 471 runs from nine games and Dom Stannard (432 from 11 matches) sit in the top two of the Division 1 batting charts.

Barnack's Ajaz Akhtar, who is 43 runs behind Stannard, is the only other player who can realistically threaten the duo's tally.

March's Curtis Oldroyd managed an average of more than 100 after going unbeaten in three out of his four innings.

Bowers and Stannard also registered the highest divisional partnership; 264 for the first wicket on May 30 versus Market Deeping.

Bowers has also notched the highest individual score with an unbeaten 152, and is currently top of the wicket-keeping charts with ten catches and four stumpings.

Wisbech's Brodie Ellis is second in the bowling tallies with 24 wickets.

In the Rutland League Division 4 East, Market Deeping 2nds leapfrogged over Long Sutton 2nds on Sunday after beating the hosts by 95 runs.

The result means Sutton 2nds will finish in seventh place.

Market Deeping 2nds posted 174 -9 from their allocated 40 overs.

Steven Milnes starred with the ball, taking 3-23 from eight overs, while Craig Milnes bagged 1-8.

Thisura Hewage made a tidy 1-26 from eight overs, with Andy Shaw 2-46 and Charlie Crisp also a tidy 1-24 from his full stint.

Long Sutton replied with 79 all out in the 27th over.

Paul Jeffery made 11, Andy Shaw 17 and Ethan English 17.
