Rumburgh fought back with a good partnership by Hadingham and Whittle. Overseas player Whittle ended his season at Rumburgh, as he has been called home for the rest of the season for representative honours. Rumburgh's chances of victory were slim and they were finally all out for 157.

Rumburgh entertain Worlingworth at The Banks Farm Oval tomorrow and travel to Sudbourne on Sunday.

Rumburgh 2nd XI beat St Margeret's by seven wickets.

Captain Roger Davis lost the toss in a rain reduced game and was asked to field. Rumburgh, with a mixture of colts and veterans, had the St Margaret's batsmen in all sorts of trouble.

The pick of the bowlers was veteran and club president Richard Tomkin. St Margaret's finished their innings of 10 overs with 39-3.

Rumburgh's openers and youth team players Alfie Herbert and Will Roberts were never behind the modest run rate and Rumburgh passed the St Margaret's total with three overs remaining with three wickets down, Jimmy Herbert finishing 16 not out.

Thanks go to umpires Lee and Hindle and to Mrs Blaxland for allowing the use of the beautiful rectory ground.
