SUTTON first team recovered from last week's loss at Doddington with a solid six wicket victory at Willingham.

The home side batted first but underestimated the strength of the visiting attack as their scoring was stunted to just 102-9 from their 40 overs, a lacklustre scoring rate of just 2.55.

Glenn Campbell's inspired nine over spell proved the pick of the bowling as he collected four wickets at an average of just two. Paul Robinson weighed in with more than useful figures of 2-10 to help restrict the home side.

The scarcity of runs in the Willingham innings boded ill for Sutton as the total suggested a unpredictable track. Fortunately for the visitors though, they had no such problem getting ball on bat and they knocked off the meager total a ball shy of the 22nd over. Michael Grady's 56 not out helping the batsmen from five downwards to work on their tan in the clubhouse.
