After their game last week against Leighton Buzzard was cut short by rain, Wolves returned to the field to bat first against Horspath, but after a strong start, lost a flurry of quick wickets to put them on the back foot - going from 67-1 to 87-5.

Eventually bowled out for 161, Wolves’ bowling attack did well to take three wickets for 10 runs to leave the visitors 61-3, but Dominic O’Connor’s 56 ensured Horspath (167-5) the win with five overs to go.

Wolverton play Oxford 2nds next Saturday.
