There were a couple of firsts in Whiting & Partners Division Two of the Cambs & Hunts Premier League last Saturday.

Bottom side Warboys produced a terrific run chase to collect a first success of the campaign when triumphing by two wickets at Saffron Walden 2nds.

A half-century from Liam Gaynor (52) was the biggest contribution as the locals powered past their hosts’ posting of 234-4 with three overs to spare.

Daniel Hyde fell one run short of a 50 of his own while cousin Adam hit 35. Sam Vallance (19no) and Matt Lavender (17no) then finished the job.

But Kimbolton were in no mood to celebrate after suffering a first defeat of the campaign.

A depleted side crashed to a nine-wicket loss at Sawston & Babraham after being skittled for just 63. Chris Gilthorpe provided 20 of those runs with Martin Burton (12) the only other man to reach double-figures on a day to forget.

The hosts cruised to victory with the minimum of fuss.
