Godmanchester Town v Fakenham
RECORDING what is perhaps their biggest margin of victory in a league fixture, Godmanchester posted their highest innings total for three years on the way to beating Fakenham by 239 runs.
Having beaten Fakenham in five of their seven Premier League fixtures, the Godmanchester opening partnership of Sean Borlaise and Alex Mutucumarana batted confidently from the start.

Debut-making Borlaise made 86 and Davies-Binge put on 43 as Godmanchester raced to 309 declared after only 63 overs.
Elliot Baldwin got the bowling off to a good start, taking two wickets for eight runs, before captain Bevis Moynan took one himself to reduce Fakenham to 35 for three.
Moynan took another and Baldwin took three as four middle-order wickets fell for four runs and Fakenham looked vulnerable.
Nathan Pearce claimed the remaining three wickets as Fakenham scored just 10 further runs off his bowling.
Baldwin finished with his best Premier Division figures of five for 27 from 10 overs in a game where seven Fakenham batsmen were clean-bowled.
The win means Godmanchester take the maximum 30 points on offer to get their league campaign off to the best possible start.
