Captain Michael Cafferkey has called for a final flourish from his Ramsey players in the Tucker Gardner League Division One title race.
Cafferkey hit a century for the second successive Saturday to inspire his side to a 60-run success at Eaton Socon last weekend.
His innings of 104 helped the silverware hopefuls reach a tally of 185 despite eight of their batsmen being dismissed in single figures. Cafferkey’s younger brother, Elliot, was the only other exception on 21.
But that still proved to be more than enough for Ramsey to claim victory as top Division One wicket-taker Mark Edwards led a bowling effort that removed the hosts for 125. Edwards claimed 3-14 from eight overs while Jon Cade bagged 3-37.
The victory enabled Ramsey to hop back into second spot in the standings and cut the deficit between themselves and leaders Foxton to 28 points with four fixtures to go - and Cafferkey is aiming to win them all.
He said: “We’ve just got to take care of our own business and hope that Foxton slip up.
“In all truth we’re probably hitting form a bit too late after not really playing well all season.

“It will definitely go down as a ‘what if’ season if we don’t win the title, but if we can pick up victories in our final four matches, we won’t be far away.
“Foxton are a good side, but they still have decent opponents to play and hopefully results can go our way.”
Ramsey go to Saffron Walden this Saturday while Eaton Socon make the short trip to Godmanchester for an all-local clash. Waresley host Nassington.
