TUCKER GARDNER LEAGUE: Eaton Socon success leaves Ramsey on the slide but Waresley are on the rise in Division One

Ramsey were knocked off the top of the Tucker Gardner League Division One table yesterday – after failing to reel in another set of locals.
Michael Cafferkey’s men slipped to a third defeat in four games when coming up 12 runs short against Eaton Socon at Cricketfield Lane.
Taylor West top-scored with 66 as Ramsey could only reach 224-9 in pursuit of the visitors’ 236 as they dropped to third in the standings.
Matt Pateman (84) and captain Jonny Carpenter (65) were the star performers as Eaton Socon amassed a fine score despite the brilliant bowling of Ramsey ace Mark Edwards, who found himself on the losing side despite returning figures of 6-33.
Carpenter also proved a handful with the ball, taking 3-38 while fellow spinner Matt Rawling bagged 3-42.

Reigning champions Godmanchester failed to take advantage of Ramsey’s setback as they were also beaten.
Paul Swannell’s men did recover from 69-6 to reach 159 thanks to a half-century from Simon Rose, but that was not enough to prevent Nassington leaving The Parks in possession of a three-wicket verdict.
