If ever there was a game to roll out the cliché ‘men against boys,’ March Town’s Whiting & Partners Division One clash with Ramsey was it.
The local lads were battered by 161 runs as their Division One baptism over fire continued in Huntingdonshire.
For the first 25 overs March gave as good as they got in the field, but once the hosts cut loose there was no stopping them as they racked up an impressive 265-6.
The last nine overs were particularly brutal as the ball flew in all directions and an additional 77 runs came up on the board.
Skipper Tyler Phillips was outstanding with the ball during his first seven overs, with Aussie Clinton Bricker the main wicket-taker with 3-45, in what was another disappointing outing for the newly-promoted side.

Ramsey, who lost their opening match the previous week to Wisbech, were in no mood to hold back with the ball - March losing wickets at a steady pace.
Matty Vail (20) shared in a promising opening stand and ended up joint top-scorer with Spencer Saberton, who showed promise at No7.
