FOXTON coach Matt Gray has set his sights on winning Cambs Senior Division 2, after a six-wicket home victory against Weston Colville earned his side promotion on Saturday.
Foxton, who have now won back-to-back promotions, won the toss and elected to bowl first.
Antonnel Atwell struck first for Foxton, dismissing opener Adam Taylor (19) with the score on 46.
Another wicket quickly followed, Patrick Joseph bowling Arvid Gunderson for 1 to leave the visitors reeling at 47-2.
Alex Meddle (13) and Adrian Westley (7) also fell cheaply but Trevor Westley (49) and Peter Bragg (61*) kept the runs ticking over for Weston Colville.
Two further wickets fell and Weston Colville closed their innings with a total of 239-7 from 48 overs.

Antonnel Atwell was the pick of Foxton's bowlers, returning figures of 16-1-69-3.
In reply, Foxton lost Patrick Joseph cheaply for 10, but a 40 from Paul Dean and 84 from Lawrence Farnum steadied the ship.
There was still work to do when the wicket of Dean fell with the score on 152-3, but a solid partnership of 85 from Max Bowen (38*) and Ian Cambridge (45) took Foxton to within sight of their target.
The home side eventually reached their target with seven overs to spare, claiming 20 points to secure promotion.
However, second-placed Waresley's 25-point victory means that the race for the title will go down to the final round of fixtures this weekend.
Foxton play Eaton Socon away on Saturday, while Waresley travel to Fordham.
