Hunts elected to bat at Peterborough Town CC last Sunday after winning the toss and Warboys skipper Matt Duncan contributed well with a swift 55 as they reached 254-9 in a high-scoring clash. And that proved to be just enough for victory as the Northants youngsters came up just short on 252-8 in reply. They got off to a good start with an opening-wicket stand of 126, but a collapse followed with four wickets falling for the addition of just nine runs at one stage. Kimboltons overseas ace Ruben Claassen spun his way to 3-47 to keep the pressure on the Academy side who required 12 runs from the final over to snatch victory. But they were only able to add nine as Hunts prevailed.
