A BLISTERING all-round display from Soham ensured they sailed to a ominous 120-run win over Sutton at the weekend.

Soham tasted their first defeat in Division 2A a fortnight ago at the hands of Wisbech, but they bounced back in style against Sutton, producing the goods with both bat and ball to seal a comprehensive win.

Opting to bat first, the home side blasted into a commanding position from the outset as openers Nick Mingay (79) and Peter Hinde (41) seized control. Further down the order Mick Harvey chipped in with a useful 41 to help Soham finish up on 218 from their 40 overs, a decent scoring rate of almost five-and-a-half per over.
