Barnack Cricket Club are winners of the Huntingdonshire League





Barnack have completed the second leg of a terrific title double.

After being crowned Rutland League champions on a Sunday, they lifted the Hunts League Division One title with victory in their final game on Saturday.

They beat Falcon by nine runs to finish 13 points clear of second-placed Blunham 2nds who were beaten by Elstow at the weekend.

Barnack had made 214 after electing to bat first with opener Ajaz Akhtar making 64 while Ali Zeb made a crucial 38 lower down the order.

Zeb then took 2-3 from three overs while Javad Ghani grabbed 3-33 as Falcon finished their 45 overs on 205-9.

Nassington ended the season at the other end of the table after failing to break their losing streak in the last match of the campaign.

They were beaten by eight runs at Bharat Sports who had made 291 after batting first with Hassnain Shabbir and Muhammad Israr taking 4-56 and 3-60 respectively.

Arbas Nawaz (75), Asif Ali (67), Shabbir (37) and Amish Patel (36) were the chief contributors in the reply as Nassington closed their 45 overs on 277-9.

Burghley Park head into their final match of the South Lincs and Border League season this weekend five points clear at the top of Division One.

They host Newborough 2nds on Saturday having been awarded the win last weekend when Skegness conceded.

Shane George was in fine form with the ball as second-placed Billingborough breezed to a 10-wicket win over Baston on Saturday.

George took 5-17 from eight overs while Harry Lamb claimed 2-8 from a seven-over spell as Baston were bowled out for 39.

Billingborough needed just 14 balls to pass their target as Dylan Garfoot smashed four fours and two sixes in his 29 not out while Jacob Light was unbeaten on 14 at the close.

Bourne 2nds took the derby day spoils in the Championship after a six-wicket win over Market Deeping at the Abbey Lawn.

Burghley Park 2nds were eight-wicket winners in the Division Two derby with Uffington.

Damien Herrick hit a half-century as Uffington were bowled out for 113 as James Biggs took 5-12 for Burghley while Josh Gallimore claimed 3-41.

Daniel Pellett (32) and Stephen Harker-Brown (37) led the Burghley reply with a 69-run opening stand before Kavin Viswanathan (19no) and Charles Sharpe (10no) steered them home.

Dave Newman was in fine form as Billingborough 2nds were six-wicket winners over Boston 3rds.

Newman took 2-11 as Boston were restricted to 168-5 before blasting 26 boundaries in a quick-fire 117 as the win was easily secured.
