Alex Marsh hit 100 and Matt Chester took 6-40 in a 91-run triumph at Burghley Park in Division One.

Marsh’s first ton of the summer was complimented by 52 from Richard Harris as Buckden amassed 277-8 before removing their Stamford hosts for 186.

Eaton Socon 2nds snapped a four-game losing run with a 169-run rout of Hampton. Dan Wood (70) and Karthik Jagadish (60) helped the locals to 254-6 before they dismissed their Peterborough opponents for just 85 with Ryan Vale (3-15) leading the way.

Fiaz Mirza delivered his best-ever bowling figures to help Alconbury see off Godmanchester Town 2nds by 90 run in Division Two.

Mirza bagged 5-11 as the Town side were dismissed for 94 when chasing Alconbury’s 184, which featured 51 from Neil Suckling.

Godmanchester bowlers Jamie Rice and Jim Lunn returned identical 3-33 figures in that game.

Captain Mitchell Newman’s unbeaten century helped Upwood see off Waresley 2nds at that level. The skipper starred with 107no in a 36-run triumph – their fourth victory in a row.

Newman’s innings helped Upwood to 239-7 before Waresley 2nds were restricted to 201-9 in reply. Tushaar Garg (59) and William Paul (44no) were the most impressive contributors while Neil Tuffin returned the seemingly popular figures of 3-33 for Upwood.
