Tuffin clubbed a mighty 142 as his side roared to a 176-run triumph in their Division Three opener against Hampton 2nds. More than a century of Tuffins runs arrived in boundaries as he pummelled the Peterborough sides bowlers into submission with 27 fours. Upwood eventually declared an over early on 311-7 before removing the visitors for 135 James Milner, Brett Wright and Zubair Mohammed bagging three wickets apiece to complete an emphatic success. Nazam Jawaid hit 88 as Huntingdon & District 2nds slipped to a five-wicket defeat at Biggleswade at the same level. Jawaids quick knock, off just 81 balls, featured six fours and six sixes and helped his side to 239-9. Ali Shah (55) also made a half-century while Zia Rahman added 34, but hosts Biggleswade passed their target with five balls to spare. A century from TJ Harding couldnt prevent reigning Division One champions Ramsey 2nds from falling to a season-opening defeat. Harding cracked an unbeaten 105 and was responsible for almost half of his sides total of 213-9 in an eight-wicket reverse at Peterborough side Orton Park. Waresley 2nds were also on the receiving end of a heavy loss at that level. They went down to Hampton by 288 runs when being removed for just 101 in reply to a hefty score of 389-8. Waresley bowler Thomas Baker did his best to stem the tide by taking 3-54. Buckden made a smart start to the campaign in Division Two. Alex Marshs men eased to a seven-wicket success at Nassington 2nds. Laurie Marsh (3-18) led a fine Buckden bowling effort as they dismissed their hosts for 126 before easing to victory. Lewis Medlow top-scored as he fell two runs short of a half-century, while skipper Marsh added 33. Young Jack Ranganathan impressed for St Ives in their Division Five opener. The 12 year-old followed up an unbeaten 58 with 3-26 in a three-wicket loss to Houghton & Wyton.
