Hemingford piled up 332-6 in their 45 overs, but an unbeaten 184 from Suryanarayanan saw Adidda home with six overs to spare. He struck eight sixes and 26 fours. Adidda have clinched promotion behind champions Weriington who were beaten at Easton-on-the-Hill.

Newborough need just 12 points from their final two matches to secure the title and a return to Cambs League cricket.

Bretton sealed the Division Three title with a convincing 82-run win over Peterborough Town thirds in their final match. Andy Bennett (94no) was their star man.
