Gary Cole weighed in with four further wickets and Socon finished on 223-9 .

Nicholas Taylor contributed 41 at the head of the Waresley innings and Alex Scully scored 34 off 33 balls but that was as good as it got, the home side being dismissed 65 runs short on 158.

Shabz Hussain hit a century for Blunham in a high-scoring affair at Histon. But sadly his 112, and 56 from Connor Heaps, wasn’t enough to prevent their hosts winning by 52 runs.
