Great Chishill had cause for double celebration on Saturday as both teams went to the top of their respective leagues.

In Division 2SA, Haslingfield batted first and made 214-4, D Flatman's century one of three on the day in the two matches involving Chishill.

Simon Lipscombe took the prized wicket of Flatman in a spell of 2-39.

In reply, Chishill started well with a partnership of 97 between Paul Drury and the prolific Ollie Stoop.

Stoop went on to make 61 before captain Angus Gent finished off proceedings with a thunderous 59 not out, leaving more than four overs unused.

Great Chishill II inserted their visitors in 4SB, Newton II, but saw them accelerate to 213 all out as Aspinall struck the ball to all parts in an innings of 125.

Only Terry Manning was able to keep control of matters, but Tom Fagg persisted in the face of some severe punishment to emerge with 3-50.

Chishill's response got off to the worst possible start as Mike Harris went first ball. Spencer Loveday and Simon Coxall then added 67 for the second wicket, before a flurry of dismissals saw the score slump to 98-6.

Captain Joe Wright then joined Coxall at the crease and the pair added 114 to claim a remarkable victory with just over two overs to go, Coxall carrying his bat for 113 not out.
