Toby Nulty scorched to his maiden
Tucker League ton on Saturday - the first local player to do so for six seasons
- as the 1st XI hammered Ufford Park by 114 runs at The Avenue. You have to go
back to 2010 for the last 'non-pro' to reach three figures, when Shardul
Brahmbhatt scored 114 against Abington.
Nulty came in at No5 and hit 103 off
114 balls and shared in an amazing sixth wicket stand of 159 with Nathan Oliver,
who completed his first Saturday half-century with a very fine unbeaten 73. That
enabled March to recover from 89-5 to post 272-7.
Skipper Tyler Phillips ran in well for
a 4-25 spell, as the visitors made just 158 - Anthony Palmer and Andy Wright
each picking up a brace of wickets.
March 1st XI 272-7, 50 overs (Toby
Nulty 103, Nathan Oliver 73no, Tommy Howgego 24, Matty Vail 19), Ufford Park
158, 38.3 overs (Tyler Phillips 4-25, Andy Wright 2-38, Anthony Palmer 2-40).
The 2nd XI continue to struggle in CCA
Senior League Division 2, where they haven't won a game since a three win start
to the season. This time round they lost away to Longstanton by seven wickets.
Skipper John Wallis remained undefeated
on 40 in the March total of 121-7, with James Harradine adding 30 and
Longstanton helping out with 17 extras!
Despite an early 37-3 blip, the home
side knocked the runs off in 24 overs.
March 2nd XI 121-7, 45 overs (John
Wallis 40no, James Harradine 30), Longstanton 125-3, 24 overs.
The 3rd XI were outclassed by a much
better team when they lost by nine wickets to visitors Terrington in CCA Junior
League Division 2N.
March were bowled out for 86, which was
an easy target for the team in second spot.
The Sunday 1st XI coasted to a
comfortable five wicket victory in Rutland League Division 2 against fourth in
the table Newborough, who they had beaten at home earlier in the season.
Former skipper Stuart Mills helped
dismiss the village side for 147, with figures of 5-25. Steve Coe was again in
the wickets - this time 3-24, with skipper Andy Wright taking 2-29.
Shaz Akhter smashed his top score of
the season with a quick-fire 65 at the top of the order, supported by Brandon
Phillips (27) in the 148-5 reply.
Newborough 147 all out, 45 overs
(Stuart Mills 5-25, Steve Coe 3-24, Andy Wright 2-29), March 1st XI 148-5, 27.2
overs (Shaz Akhter 65, Brandon Phillips 27, Ben Chapman 15no).
Runs galore at The Avenue again as the
Sunday 2nd XI continue to top the Fenland Trophy, having made light work of
title contenders Ely following a 174 run win.
March totalled 263 thanks to 68 from
Manuj Patel and 61 from Adam Conyard. In reply the visitors were dismissed for
89, with a trio of bowlers all picking up three wickets - Geoff Kirby 3-2,
Charlie Revell 3-11 and vice-captain Sam Mason 3-21.
March 2nd XI 263 all out (Manuj
