DIVISION 2

CROPREDY were guilty of a shocking batting performance at leaders Leighton Buzzard Town, with only two of their 11 making it into double figures.

Alan Priestley (5-20) took the first five wickets to fall, reducing the visitors to 32-5.

Jack Kempster then took 4-12 from 7.2 overs as Cropredy crashed to 85 all out. Without 25 wides, they would have been humiliated.

Antony Francis hit 48 not out in Town’s 89-2, as they extended their lead at the top to 38 points.

L Buzzard Town 25pts, Cropredy 2

The other three matches in the division were abandoned before a ball was bowled.

Aston Rowant 2nd 6, Cublington 6

Bledlow Village 6, Ox & Bletch N 6

Horspath 2nd 6, Long Marston 6
