A RESURGENT Soham started their new season with a win as they eased past Sutton 2XI by five wickets.

Soham fell on hard times last season and had to cancel many of their fixtures, leaving the future of the club in some doubt. Their plea for re-enforcements was more than adequately answered over the summer however, and their new look line-up took Sutton to task as they skittled the hosts out for just 67 runs.

David Lunn was a man on a mission for the visitors as his electric bowling spell saw him pick up 5-7, an unprecedented strike rate of just 1.4 runs conceded for every wicket taken. There were solid contributions also, from Peter Fretwell and Keith Metcalfe who weighed in with two wickets a piece.

After tea it was Soham's turn to wield the bat and debutant Nick Mingay took the opportunity to impress his new club mates as he crunched his way to 55 not out, including a textbook boundary from his first ball faced.
