SOHAM had three generations of the Fretwell family in their team on Saturday, with granddad Alan (66), father Pete (41) and his son Matthew (11) all in action against Wilburton.

Soham won the toss and elected to bat first, and despite the loss of two early wickets reached 80 for 2 thanks to a third wicket partnership of 61 between opener Pete Fretwell (42) and John Lane (35).

Things looked to be going Soham's way until Lane - who hit six fours and one six - was dismissed for P Dewey's only wicket, and Fretwell had to temporarily retire with a shoulder injury.

Lewis Beckett scored a brisk 19 before becoming one of Ian Jacobs's three victims, and Soham's innings fell apart after that as they went from 104 for 4 to 123 all out, with 15-year old Lee Newton enjoying a spell of 4 for 6 in just 4 overs.

Newton then opened the batting for Wilburton, sharing a stand of 70 with Gary Foot before being bowled out for 35.

Foot eventually finished with 25, and was joined on that score by Stuart Norman as Wilburton reached their target with the loss of just one wicket.

Soham used seven bowlers, with Wade Leaford the only wicket-taker (1 for 18).

Paul Leaford meanwhile conceded only 24 runs in his 10 overs, and Todd Bridgland just 15 runs from 7 overs.
