Ramsey 2nds lifted the Smith Barry Junior Cup last Sunday – 24 hours after catapulting themselves back into the Hunts League Division One title race.
Damian Clarke’s men beat Buckden by four wickets in a showpiece clash at Cricketfield Lane to lift the silverware. Matt Slack hit 73 and Harry Buddle remained unbeaten on 38 as they eased past Buckden’s posting of 190-8.
More than half of that score was provided by Laurie Marsh, who hit fifteen fours and a six in a high-class 107 before becoming one of four victims for Blake Mills.
Slack was also in the runs the previous day when Ramsey 2nds breezed to a nine-wicket league victory against Eaton Socon 2nds.
He powered to 90no and captain Damian Clarke hit an unbeaten 81 as they eclipsed the hosts’ posting of 180-4 with 13 overs to spare.
Buckden man Marsh was also on song last Saturday as his side cruised to a Division Two victory. He hit an unbeaten 48 and sibling Alex made 45 as they saw off Blunham 2nds by seven wickets.
Sawtry were another team to breeze to glory as they boosted their promotion hopes in Division Three. Brian Chapman (3-6), Ian Bonsall (3-11) and Shaun Hubbard (3-24) helped to skittle Werrington for just 50 in a nine-wicket triumph.
