After winning the toss, Offley slumped to 59-9, before a 10th wicket stand of 57 between skipper Mathew Freeman (33) and Ryan Chamberlain (15) saw them recover to 116 all out.

James Gauge took 3-40 for Biggleswade, while Thomas Boyd picked up 3-29.

Fine bowling from Offley kept things tight as Chamberlain claimed 3-15, but Biggleswade reached 117-6 to triumph thanks mainly to Kevin Wright (28), Bruce Ditcham (20 not out) and George Bascom (19).
