WARESLEY made a gallant bid to win the Tucker Division 2 with a fine 57-run win over neighbours Eaton Socon.
Jay Szwajbak (57*) had to retire with a shoulder injury after he had put Waresley in a strong position and Myles Cordeux (40) continued the assault on the Socon bowlers.
Only John Carpenter (4-48) made any in-roads into the home batting line up that totalled 196-7.
Barry Cavilla (36) saw the visitors off to a good start but the introduction of Chris Asque (6-31) put pay to any hopes Socon had of causing an upset.
Results elsewhere conspired against Waresley who had to be content with the runners-up spot after a very good season.
Kimbolton ended the season on a high with a five wicket win against Castor. The visitors totalled 143-8 with Nick Borkett (5-23) returning match-winning figures.
Michael Pollard (66) was enough to see Kim home. The win was enough to see Kimbolton off the bottom of the league as Bluntisham (139-8) went down by seven wickets to Fordham (140-3).
In the only other Cambs league fixture featuring a local side St Ives crumbled to 52 all out chasing Fordham II's 129-8.
In the Hunts Leagues, Frank Gloster (44) led the way for Warboys, who totalled 122-6. In reply Wisbech were shot out for 88, with Richard O'Leary (3-13), Alex Grange (3-17) and Matthew Almond (3-31) giving the club the win that lifted them well clear of the bottom two.
In the same league Godmanchester III recorded a 39-run win against Ufford Park, who could only manage 154-8 in reply to Goddy's 193-5.
Kimbolton II overwhelmed Nassington III by six wickets Nassington finishing on 185 and Kim reaching the total for the loss of just four wickets.
Eaton Socon III (117-5) did enough to beat Werrington (115) on Saturday but Buckden II (64) were unable to chase Werrington's (132) successfully on Sunday.
Sawtry III finished the season with two wins at the weekend. Their 127-5 was enough to overhaul Hunts II 125 and they dismissed Warboys III for 104 and reached the total for only four down in the other match.
In the Rutland leagues, Eaton Socon (156) beat Empingham (112) but their second XI lost by eight wickets to Kings Cliffe having set a respectable 174 all out. Godmanchester II crashed to 75 all out and East Carlton almost made a mess of the chase as they won the match on 76-8.
