In Hunts Division Four on Saturday, an unbeaten 105 from Joe Donnelly inspired Socon thirds to a comfortable victory over Brampton.

Number five Donnelly dominated his 120-run stand with Adam Newman (24no) as they reached 214-6 having elected to bat first.

Andy Canham was the pick of the Brampton bowlers with 4-42 – and then looked good with the bat – but his 30 could not save Brampton as they could only muster 144-8.
