It was a low-scor­ing game played out in a bit­ter at­mos­phere as Gran­tham took im­pend­ing de­feat rather badly.

The Divi­sion Two pro­mo­tion chasers were dis­missed for just 104asy­oung­sters Jack Bolsover(4-14), Ge­orgeMartin (3-36) and Joe Charl­ton (2-24) all bowled well.

Oun­dle lost early wick­ets, but man-of-the-match Alex Martin(60no) heldthein­nings to­gether as Oun­dle won the tro­phy for the fifth­timeinthe last nine sea­sons. They were run­ners-up on two other oc­ca­sions in that pe­riod.

The Plate Fi­nal for first round losers was won in a hurry by Stam­ford who skit­tled hosts Uf­ford Park for just 55 to set up­a­nine-wicket win. Seam­erTimJug­gins(7-25) was Stam­ford’s star bowler.

The Rut­land Divi­sion One ti­tle could be de­ter­mined this Sun­day (Septem­ber 4) when top two Nass­ing­ton and Bournecol­lide at Fotheringay Road.

Nass­ing­ton reached the sum­mit for the first time this sum­mer with a 59-run win at Oun­dle, while long-time lead­ers Bournew­erelos­ing bytwo wick­et­sath­ome­toneigh­bours Mar­ket Deep­ing.

ConorCraig(53& 4-26) was Nass­ing­ton’s all-round star, but cap­tain Pete Mor­gan’s 75 proved in vain for Bourne as Deep­ing re­cov­ered from 1257 to reach a win­ning score of 223-8. Dave Gil­lett (48no) top scored for Deep­ing.

Har­risonCraig, the16year- old younger brother of Conor, cracked his first se­nior ton as Nass­ing­ton beat His­ton by 10 wick­ets in Cambs Divi­sion One.
