GODMANCHESTER II produced a number of excellent individual performances but were held to a frustrating draw by Foxton I on Saturday.

BEN Clements showed his class with a knock of 90 at the top of the innings, and his excellent score was supplemented by an impressive 71 from Simon Cafferkey. Together they ensured that Godmanchester reached 240-8.

Foxton lost an opener without a run on the board to hand Godmanchester control, and the target began to appear more imposing. Jamie Rice (3-52) had some joy against the batsmen, and Adam Rendall and Cafferkey each picked up two wickets to take Godmanchester to the brink of a deserved win.

Agonisingly, the final Foxton partnership frustrated the bowlers, standing firm at 165-9 for the draw.
