Waresley made it four league wins in a row on Saturday to move into midtable in the Tucker Gardner Division One.

Put into bat by bottom side Blunham on a wet wicket and slow outfield, Waresley slowly built the innings to finish on a respectable 181-5 from their 50 overs.

Skipper Tom Griffiths (52*) led the way, supported by Charlie Lewis (34) and Jake Allcock (37). For Blunham, Geoffrey Fitzgerald (1-21) was the most economical bowler.

Blunham were never really up with the run rate, despite the efforts of Michael Pickard (32) and Connor Heaps (50), and subsided to 131 all out in 44.4 overs.

Wickets were shared around amongst the Waresley bowlers, with Robert Lowin (3-15), Nigel Buckingham-Jones (3-17) and Jack Richards (3-28) the key performers.
