In reply, Nick Cadman (34) & Doug Aris (33*) saw Brickhill home comfortably for the loss of 3 wickets inside 20 overs.

The second XI secured promotion to division 3 with a thrilling 3 run win away to Brackley.

In reply, Blackwell bowled with excellent control to take 2-25 off 15 overs allowing young spinner Hamid Miah to collect 4 wickets but with a late partnership threatening, Harry Kearns took 2 vital wickets to seal victory with 4 runs needed.
