CHATTERIS moved back up to the top of CCA Division Three thanks to Saturday's seven-wicket victory at Longstanton Grasshoppers.

Grasshoppers were put in to bat on a good wicket but the Chatteris bowlers gave a disciplined performance and Ant Palmer (2-20) and Dave Wool restricted the home side to just 55 runs from the first 20 overs.

With more good work from Andy Wool (1-48) and Pete Munns (4-38), Grasshoppers ran out of overs after scoring 166-7.

Chatteris began to score rapidly and after the loss of Dave Rose and James Dawson, Pete Munns stepped up to the mark with a superb 76 not out.

With the support of Jeff Jackson's 39 not out, Chatteris secured a good victory with seven wickets remaining.

The weekend got even better for Chatteris on Sunday when they thumped local rivals March II in the Fenland Trophy.

Teenager Connor Cunningham was the Chatteris batting star as he carved out a fantastic innings of 91 not out and helped the home side to post a good score of 231-3 from 45 overs.

The March batsmen were unable to threaten the Chatteris total as Andy Wool went on the rampage to return bowling figures of 6-10 and dismiss the visitors for just 78.
