Foxton (237-9) beat Ramsey (216 all out) by 21 runs.

BATSMAN Lawrence Farnum continued his one-man crusade to push Foxton into the top half of Tucker Gardner Division One by hitting 166 not out against Ramsey on Saturday.

Taking his average to 99.4, Farnum hit his highest score of the season so far and seems to be enjoying life pitting his wits against some very good bowlers.

Foxton batted first but got off to a miserable start when they lost Daniel Griggs to a catch by Damian Clarke for 0, however Farnum and Max Bowen (26) briefly steadied the ship before the latter was caught by Mark Edwards off Grant de Kock's bowling.

Farnum ploughed on to devastating effect, but went through eight partners as bowler Nick Rushton took 4-46 with only Dennis Sabey (10) hitting double figures.

Foxton finished their innings on 237-9 and set off in pursuit of their opponent's batsmen with confidence, and Andrew Gray took the early wicket of Matthew Slack (7).

Fellow opener Damien Clarke (29), de Kock (36), Michael Kay (28) all put good runs on the board, as did James Woodward whose 66 put pressure on the Foxton bowling attack.

However, Antonnel Atwell bowled three of the top order batsmen on his way to figures of 14-3-40-4 and after Woodward fell so too did the Ramsey batting spell.

Foxton managed to bowl their opponents out for 216 in a win that sees them move up to sixth in the table.

Next up for Foxton is a trip to seventh-placed Cambridge Granta II next Saturday.
