March Town ended a disappointing Rutland League campaign with a dramatic victory on Sunday.
Despite losing five wickets for 69 runs, a 64-run partnership between Curtis Oldroyd and man of the match Jacob Gray guided March to 205-7 off 40 overs against Burghley Park 1sts in Division One.
In reply, Charlie Esson’s 104 kept the hosts up with the run rate, before being caught by Shae Pooley which led to a collapse from 171-5 to 192 all out with eight balls remaining.
Gray, who knocked an unbeaten 55, also impressed with the ball as he notched figures of 4-24, and Manuj Patel recorded 4-48.
There were also wickets for Pooley (1-31) and Sam Mason (1-29).
