Godmanchester 190 all out
Burwell won by 8 wickets after being set a revised target
BURWELL won a rain-affected match after putting the visitors into bat.
Bottom-of-the-table Godmanchester reached 68 for 1 at one stage as number three batsman Michael Lloyd top-scored with 40, but wickets fell regularly thereafter as Mark Bissett took 4 for 65 and Merrick Fuller, James Ross Craig and Adam Huckle (2 for 12 from 8 overs) all claimed two wickets a-piece.
Only John Hardy held up the home bowlers towards the end of the innings, sharing a last wicket partnership of 39 before falling to Fuller, having scored 39.
Zimbabwean Grant Flower opened for Burwell with 45 runs, and James Ross Craig was still there on 31 when the innings closed after 21.2 overs.
Burwell now lie second in the table, 23 points behind Nassington.

Fordham 81 for 3
Kimbolton & Catworth 120 for 8
Fordham won by 7 wickets after being set a revised target
IN another rain-affected fixture, Fordham consolidated their mid-table position by defeating bottom club Kimbolton & Catworth to claim 20 points.
The first stoppage came when Kimbolton were on 28 for 1, but Clinton Cornwell - who had taken the opening wicket - continued his fine spell and claimed further wickets (eventually taking 5 for 39) as the visitors were reduced to 45 for 5.
Fordham's target of 121 was reduced to 78 (for 8) from 31 overs, and openers Gavin Harding and Mark Silcock played very positively with a partnership of 48 which included several front foot drives through the covers.
Harding eventually saw Fordham past their target with a score of 28 not out.
