In re­ply, Mar­low lost early wick­ets to Kwat­sha’s open­ing salvo, leav­ing them reel­ing at 18-3, but a re­cov­ery saw them look­ing odds-on win­ners un­til their ninth wicket fell at 256.

Mar­low’s fi­nal man then be­came the third run out vic­tim of some tiger­ish field­ing when, with three needed from the fi­nal over, he at­tempted a sui­ci­dal sec­ond run, leav­ing Che­sham ec­static win­ners, hav­ing nar­rowed the gap on Stoke Green to 14 points.

Mean­while, an in­jury-rid­den 2nds side fought gamely against Hare­field 2nds be­fore go­ing down by three wick­ets, Sam Rance tak­ing 4-52, while young Joseph Rance took 3-40 as the 3rds went lost to Wind­sor 2nds by two wick­ets with an over to spare.

A great spell of 7-30 by Max Hutt, plus an un­beaten knock of 68 from Sar­fraz Nawaz, saw the 4s beat Hare­field 4s by five wicket, while on Sun­day, Che­sham Women lost to Hamp­stead, de­spite a good in­nings from Har­ret Stone and two wick­ets apiece from Lyn­d­sey Parham and Laura Gur­ney.
