A century partnership from Jairus Charles and Divyeash Vaseeharan helped Hunts Under 10s to a fine triumph against Suffolk.

The local lads were put into bat at Worlington CC on Tuesday night, but responded by piling up 143-4 with Charles (48) and Vaseeharan (40no) providing the bulk of the runs.

And they produced a fine bowling and fielding performance to close out an 82-run success by dismissing their hosts for 61. Daniel Wells returned the fine figures of 4-8.

That was the Hunts lads’ second outing in the space of three days after they slipped to a 25-run defeat at the hands of Cambridgeshire in a low-scoring tussle at Eaton Socon last Sunday.

Wells (3-3) and Luke Ashwell (3-21) impressed as Cambridgeshire were restricted to 85, but Huntingdon could manage just 60 in reply. Ashwell (13) and fellow Eaton Socon player Jacob Watling (10) were the highest scorers.

Hunts Under 11s were edged out by two wickets in a low-scoring thriller by Bedfordshire at Steppingley.

Only Oliver Ford managed to reach 20 as Hunts struggled with the bat and were bowled out for 116.
