Neil Buckingham scored his 50th Bretton half century.

Claypole still piled up 245-9, but Andrews topped the PT bowling merit table for the past week.

There were a couple of club milestones as Bretton beat Ramsey thirds in a rain affected Hunts Division Three match. Neil Buckingham bagged his 50th Bretton half century, making 77 of his side’s 272-4 before Omar Ali Khan picked up his 442nd wicket for the club, breaking a long-standing Bretton record. Ali Khan finished with figures of 2-38 as Ramsey finished well short of their revised victory target on 97-4.

James Wright of Long Sutton seconds topped the PT merit table batting charts after cracking 17 fours and four sixes in an innings of 126 against Billingborough seconds in South Lincs Division Two.
