PYMOOR batted like a team possessed to record a magnanimous 205 run victory over lowly Willingham.

Put in to bat first, Pymoor were keen to put a recent run drought behind them and wasted no time in battering open the flood gates as they sent ball after ball soaring over the ropes.

Fine knocks of 85 and 50 from John Hunt and Ali Flack respectively ensured the team got off on a sound footing and late runs from Mark Neighbour (44) completed a real smash and grab destruction of the Willingham bowling averages.

Needing 285 for victory, the home side were immediately tasked with an almost unrepeatable feat of smashing their way to seven runs an over.

Unlike Pymoor however, they struggled throughout their order and were preyed upon by the wicket-thirsty bowling of Paul Ruskin (6-20) who helped see them dismissed for just 80 runs.
