DIVISION 3

GREAT & Little Tew 2nd lost opener Sam Barnes to the first ball of their match at leaders Sandford St Martin before slumping to 116 all out.

Although Danny Smith took some tap, he finished with 6-63 from 11.1 overs.

At 73-6, Tew were struggling to reach three figures until No 8 Sam Smith (37) gave them something to defend.

Sandford were also 0-1 after one ball when Lawrence Brock (3-33) removed Thomas Goffe, but Grant Phillips-Tebb (33) stabilised their reply and they just managed to scrape together 117-8.
