Andrew Wright and Chris Ringham almost salvaged a draw for struggling March Town against Foxton ... but they succumbed to a 72 run loss.

At The Avenue, Foxton batted first and posted 225-6. The returning Callum Young was pick of the bowlers with 2-38.

In reply, March’s top order once again failed to fire. When Wright and Ringham came together at 85-8, a sixth loss in seven games looked a certainty.

But a stubborn ninth wicket partnership of 59 runs took March to within three overs of an unlikely draw. Wright hit 33, with Ringham left unbeaten on 23.

March find themselves 10th in the Tucker Gardner league, one place and one point above the drop zone.

Up next is a daunting away day at high-flying Wisbech, who have just beaten leaders Ramsey on their own patch.

Steve Hinson hit a century (106) but March II lost by 106 runs to Cambridge Granta II in CCA Senior League Division 1.
