First published in Other Competitions


Division 3

JAMES Coleman took 5-41 to bowl Cropredy to victory at home to Bicester & North Oxford in one of only two games in the division to be played after the recent wet weather.

The hosts had struggled to get going themselves, being dismissed for a meagre 144.

Luke Cherry and Ed Somerton both scored 41, while Richard Simpson (5-45) bowled with distinction for Bicester.

The visitors’ batsmen had no answer to Coleman, crumbling to 100 all out.

Cropredy 25pts, Bicester & North Oxford 6

Adam Mould was the league’s only centurion on the opening day, his 114 helping Bledlow Village rack up 230-7 at Kingston Bagpuize.

He was supported by Harry Moseley (30) as only Matthew Warner (3-40) enjoyed much success with the ball.

Bagpuize were never really in contention after the interval.

But Joe Washbourne-Calcutt (38) and Warner (37no) did just enough to earn the home side a battling draw on 161-8.

Matthew Pearce led the way with 3-34 for visitors Bledlow.
