Eaton Socon remain on course for the Cambs & Hunts Premier League Division One play-offs despite a last-ball defeat to March Town.

They sit second, five points behind Histon with two games to go 

It was a dramatic finish to the contest at The Avenue as March got to their revised target despite losing two wickets in a thrilling final over.

They had gone into it needing just two runs but Jamie Vale, on his way to figures of 3-8, pounced with the first two deliveries and then bowled two dots.

March though were able to scramble a single off the penultimate ball and then another on the final one to snatch the win.

Earlier Eaton Socon had made 174-9 with Jon Carpenter the top-scorer on 34.

They host Stamford Town at home on Saturday with the team finishing top of the standings securing home advantage for September's play-offs.
