March Town’s Toby Nulty surged to his maiden Tucker League ton on Saturday - the first local player to do so for six seasons - as his side hammered Ufford Park by 114 runs at The Avenue.

Nulty hit 103 off 114 balls and shared a superb sixth wicket stand of 159 with Nathan Oliver, who completed his first Saturday half-century with a fine unbeaten 73. That enabled March to recover from 89-5 to post 272-7.

Skipper Tyler Phillips ran in well with 4-25, as the visitors made just 158, and Anthony Palmer and Andy Wright each piced up a brace.

Chatteris’ Peter Munns was also 100 up as his men kept up their chase at the top of the CCA Senior League Division One with a 19-run success over Chippenham.

Munns’ majestic 104 and 56 from Kurt Cunningham helped the Fenland side to 220, and figures of 3-28 from bowler Anthony Bamford ensured that Chippenham would fall just short.

March Town 2nds continue to struggle in the CCA Senior League Division 2, and fell to a seven wicket defeat to Longstanton.

Skipper John Wallis remained undefeated on 40 in the March’s 121-7, with James Harradine adding 30. Despite an early 37-3 blip, the home side knocked the runs off in 24 overs.
