WITCHAM 1st XI were given a stern test at the weekend as they narrowly overcame a plucky Isleham side.

Opting to bat first, Isleham battled staunchly and had the exemplary efforts of top three D Fitchett (77) G Dunbavin (34) and G Cowling (35) to thank for them reaching an eminently respectable total of 189.

Visiting pair Chris Houghton and N Jones were the pick of the Witcham bowlers with both pacemen picking up 3-48.

Witcham were sluggish in reply and two ducks in the top five put them in some trouble as they faltered to 30-5. That is, until the arrival of Glenn Griffiths at the crease as he and able partner Chris Houghton saw them team to a three wicket victory with scores of 71 and 42 respectively. Isleham's S Dunsmuir led the way for the bowlers as he snagged 3-34.
