Johnson hit an unbeaten 135 and Jack Crawley was 60 not out as they saw off Cokenach by eight wickets in Division Three.

Yelling remain bottom despite breezing past a target of 280.

Captain Stuart Cornwell cracked a ton as second-bottom Bluntisham beat Cambourne by 30 runs at the same level.

The opener hit nine fours and seven sixes in his 107, which was responsible for almost half of his side’s total of 216.
