Royston 2nds thrashed promotion-chasing Wilbrahams 2nds by 76 runs on Saturday.

Captain Bonham Harper made 32 and Sam Hodgetts 22 as the hosts were all out for what looked a paltry 121.

Terrific bowling performances from Jon Harper (7-26) and Praveen Nath (3-18) cleared up the visitors for just 45.

Skipper David Brown led by example with 21 but his side let him down. Four ducks, including both openers, summed up a woeful day for Wilbrahams.
