Great Chishill 137-8 lost to Chatteris Town 138-4 by six wickets

WITH Senior League cricket assured for next season, Great Chishill opted to give all of their young players a taste of higher-level cricket.

A modest total of 137-8 was illuminated by the performance of Tom Picton-Turbervill, the talented 13-year-old making an assured 57 against Chatteris Town.

The hosts had no real problems in reaching their target, but Picton-Turbervill's leg-spin and the seam bowling of James Tilbury caused a few alarms before Chatteris finished on 138-4.
