THAMES VAL­LEY LEAGUE DI­VI­SION 3B Wooburn Narko­vians 141 Che­nies & La­timer 142-1 wrapped up a nine-wicket win in re­ply. Asad Ladha was un­beaten on 64.

Nor­wood said: “We lost out by such a fine mar­gin last sea­son, and this sea­son has just been a con­tin­u­a­tion of that re­ally – we’re de­ter­mined it won’t hap­pen again. It’s early days yet, but it’s been a good start.

“There are five of us who have played to­gether since the U15s, so we’ve got quite a tight-knit squad, and our aim is to get back into Di­vi­sion Two, where we last were five or so years ago. We’ve been sit­ting in Di­vi­sion Three for too long now.”

Chal­font St Peter, mean­while, who were rel­e­gated from Di­vi­sion 3b last sum­mer, were them­selves on the end of a nine-wicket ham­mer­ing, by Ruis­lip in Di­vi­sion 4a, af­ter be­ing bowled out for a pal­try 94.

Over in the Chiltern Cricket League, un­beaten lead­ers Penn & Tylers Green stayed top of Di­vi­sion One with a 66-run win over Bin­field, while Winch­more Hill also pre­served their un­blem­ished record at the sum­mit of Di­vi­sion Four with a six-wicket win over Den­ham sec­onds.
