SUNDAY'S Hunts League Division Five clash between Upwood's third XI and Hilton last Sunday developed into a thrilling run-chase with Hilton successfully defending their total

In a high scoring match, home team Upwood fielded a team of very promising young players, many of whom turned in impressive displays, not least 11-year-old Simon Cafferkey.

Hilton batted first but some fiery bowling from Upwood's Charlie Paxton (3-40) looked set to keep the visitors on course for a low total.

However a brilliant stand of 91 for the seventh wicket between Chris Stubbington (47) and Keelan Seaman (31) got Hilton's innings back on track and a nightmare 62 extras from Upwood allowed Hilton to reach 246-8 from their 45 overs.
