The wick­et­keeper fea­tured in a cen­tury stand with skip­per Liam Tegg (56) to see the side home. They had ear­lier dis­missed the visi­tors for a mod­est 154.

Buck­ham is four ahead of his near­est ri­val, Min­ster seamer Martin Ham­mond at the top of the stand­ings, and helped Town re­cover quickly from the de­feat against Old Elthami­ans the pre­vi­ous week.

They sit 12 points clear of near­est ri­vals Cat­ford & Cyphers, with the sea­son now at the half­way stage.
