Adam Fahey hit a fabulous first century in English cricket to fire Warboys to the top of the Tucker Gardner League Division Two table.

The Kiwi ace hit 114 as his side powered to a 269-run triumph at Weston Colville yesterday.

James Trafford fell four runs short of joining Fahey in three figures and captain Matt Duncan made a half-century of his own as Warboys piled up a mighty 360 before skittling their hosts for just 91.

Trafford also starred with the ball, returning the terrific figures of 4-6 while Matt Lavender bagged 4-35.

Their stay at the summit may only last a few days though, as they have played one more match than their rivals – a situation which will change on Bank Holiday Monday next week.

St Ives could well leapfrog Warboys in the coming days after reeling off a fourth successive victory yesterday.

Their 95-3 was amassed at a superior run rate to hosts Kimbolton’s 174 in a rain-shortened contest.
