THERE was agony for Ely II as they fell just three runs short of victory against Willingham at the weekend.

Bowling first, Ely did a superb job of restricting their lively opponents and some measured spells from Chris Aniskowicz (3-30) and Melvyn Palmer (2-11) saw the visitors’ innings wrapped up with 117 on the board.

Ely’s run chase started brightly with Josh Sivier notching 29 at number three but aside from a notable knock of 18 from Tim Rossington, the home batsmen struggled to get a firm grip on the game.

A tense final over, saw the game shift from one team to the other as runs were scored and wickets fell but it was Wimblington who held their nerve to bowl Ely out for 114.
