Sutton fall short against March

A SOLID all-round effort from Sutton wasn’t enough to see them to victory against high-flyers March at the weekend.

A SOLID all-round effort from Sutton wasn’t enough to see them to victory against high-flyers March at the weekend.

Notbale top-order knocks from Chris Robinson (42), Laxman Singh (35*) and Paul Robinson (54) had Sutton in an excellent position at the half-way stage but some polished bowling late from March kept Sutton’s score down to 198-6 at the close.

Glen Campbell (2-35) led Sutton’s reply with the ball but the wickets didn’t fall quick enough to stop March edging over the line in the latter stages as Manuj Patel (39*) guided the home side to a six-wicket win. Rob Braybrooke’s 2-42 was also worthy of note for the visitors.
