SATURDAY's torrential rain put paid to both games involving Chatteris' first and second teams.

The abandonment of the first team's CCA Junior Division One match at Little Downham saw Chatteris slip to second place in the table following Longstanton's victory on Saturday.

However, they will regain top spot if they can beat the new league leaders when they meet tomorrow.

Chatteris II's game against Ely and Haddenham in CCA Division Three North A did get underway but rain brought an end to the match with Chatteris on 79-3 from 28 overs.

However, the disappointment of Saturday was dismissed 24 hours later when Chatteris made the short trip to Wisbech and registered their fifth straight Fenland Trophy victory.

Wisbech had no answer to the Chatteris bowlers and Peter Munns (3-9), Max Kelly (2-26) and 15-year-old Kurt Cunningham (2-11) set about dismissing the home side for 130.

An equally impressive batting performance from Chatteris gave them the victory and an opening partnership of 75 between James Dawson (43) and David Rose (33) put the visitors in control.

Wisbech's John Mallett (3-17) bowled well to give Wisbech a glimmer of hope but Chatteris hit the winning runs in the 31st over, with six wickets to spare.
