IN THE Cambs League Senior Division 3 Great Chishill maintained their push for promotion with a sparkling seven-wicket victory over Cambridge Granta thirds.

Earlier Critchley (72) and Hammersley (53) had ensured the hosts reached a very respectable total of 241 for 5. But it was Stoop who made the difference again, with a well-taken 2-59.
