It was a washout at Great Brickhill on Saturday.

Great Brickhill had hoped to return to winning ways at home to Twyford on Saturday, but this time they were left frustrated by the weather.

They managed just nine runs from two overs by the time the rain came down at Horsepond, with the game soon abandoned and both sides taking just six points apiece for their troubles.

Bletchley Town remain bottom of Division Two, but they will certainly feel a lot better about the situation after they secured their first win of the campaign.

Taking on nearest rivals Aston Rowant, Bletchley had the visitors all out for 117 as Ricardo Brown (5-34) did the most damage.

Ben Talbot (48) then top scored for Bletchley as they battled back to win by six wickets on 121-4 inside 21 overs.

There was also a good win for Wolverton Town (141-9) as they beat Abingdon Vale (78) by 63 runs.

In Division Five, Great Brickhill 2nds (132-9) drew with Oxford 3rds (136), while in Division Six Wolverton 2nds (146-9) held on to draw at Banbury 4ths (218-8) and Bletchley 2nds’ Division Seven game away at Buckingham Town 3rds was abandoned.
