THEY finally beat the rain. Junior cricketers from Ramsey and Warboys completed their eight-a-side Hunts County Cricket Board final at the weekend.

It was Warboys under-13s, captained by Ryan Humphrey, who ended the day with the trophy as they added the eight-a-side format to their 11-a-side victory a few weeks ago.

The final was played over 20 overs, with five runs deducted for each wicket lost.

Warboys batted first, losing four early wickets but all the Warboys batsmen contributed, notably Adam Hyde with nine boundaries in his 42. Skipper Humphrey made 24 and Dan Wright 21 as Warboys set Ramsey a net total of 314 to win.

Ramsey's total of 18 lost wickets resulted in 90 runs being deducted from their batting total of 280, leaving them well short of the target.
