St Ives saw their hopes of Tucker Gardner League Division Two title glory snatched away on a soggy final Saturday of the season.

Already assured of promotion, Ryan Withers’ men were left frustrated after being pipped to the championship crown by March, who triumphed at Fordham in one of only two fixtures to be completed yesterday.

March began the day a point behind St Ives in a thrilling title battle, but their six-wicket triumph earned a 20-point haul which carried them 12 points clear.

St Ives’ home clash against Warboys was abandoned with Withers’ side having been dismissed for 133.

The skipper hit a half-century to lead his team to respectable total after they had been in dire straits at 21-5 early on.
