Hunts Under 13s claimed their first win of the season yesterday following a successful run-chase against Hertfordshire at Watford.

Three wickets in an over from leg-spinner Alex Spragg and 3-35 from skipper Ethan Rice restricted Herts to 186 all out after a first-wicket stand of 86.

Opener Charlie Fytche (33) led the Hunts reply with Rice (28) and Connor Redpath (21) helping to a four-wicket triumph.

Hunts had also looked on course for victory in their previous outing against neighbours Cambridgeshire, but were undone by a late collapse.

They were eventually beaten by 58 runs when dismissed for 147 in pursuit of the visitors’ offering of 205-4 at Huntingdon & District CC.

Hunts opener Sam Jarvis carried his bat for 74no as their final five wickets fell for the addition of just two runs.
