The hosts batted first and posted 201 all out - captain Alan Burton led the way with 42 while Josh Bowers made 40 and number 10 Sam Rippington added a valuable unbeaten 26.

In reply, Warboys looked like they may pull off an upset but lost five wickets for 16 runs to be dismissed for 152.

Brad Apted was the pick of the bowlers with 3-30, while Simon Freear chipped in with 2-10.

They will look to make it three on the bounce when they travel to fellow unbeaten side Sawston on Saturday.

The Rutland League side beat Uppingham by four wickets.
