March Town’s dismal run in the Cambs & Hunts Premier League continued after away day defeat. 

Andrew Wright’s men were 19-4 at one stage in reply to Foxton’s 249-6 on Saturday, before the visitors were skittled for 113 in Whitings & Partners Division One. 

There was some light for March in the form of Saranga Rajaguru, who notched 3-32. 

But it’s now six defeats in a row for a side who sit in eighth spot having won four of their opening six league games. 

Meanwhile, Wisbech Town’s three-game winning streak came to an end at Cambridge St Giles. 

Gary Freear and Sam Albutt led the charge in bat, scoring 39 and 44 respectively, as Wisbech went from 108-3 to 184 all out. 

But an inspired Vansh Bajaj, who claimed figures of 3-28, helped the hosts to post a score of 206 all out in 49 overs which proved too strong a target for James Williams’ men.
