GODMANCHESTER ended the Tucker 1 season in third spot following an easy win over Ramsey.

Ramsey finished in seventh place, as their innings imploded inside 30 overs and James Cowan (3-23) ended with a hat-trick.

Earlier, Trent Pascoe (66) and Cowan (46*) had seen Godmanchester to a competitive 207-7. Ramsey’s Mark Edward (4-81) took wickets, but at a cost of almost six runs per over.

Houghton’s reply was soon in disarray as they slumped to 61-5 but they showed patience and responsibility to dig their way out.
