ROYSTON'S relegation was confirmed before the game, and they failed to end the season on a high after slipping to defeat against a strong March II side.

March, bolstered by several players from their first team, won the toss and chose to bat.

Royston bowled and fielded well generally, but were punished by 13-year-old Connor Cunningham, who hit 103.

Royston were not helped by a short boundary on one side of the ground, but with one of Cunningham's team mates contributing 96 not out, the hosts made a big score of 281-6.

Richard Temple posted the best bowling ­figures with 3-60, while Ben Warren recorded 2-45.

Royston never looked likely to reach their ­target, especially after losing both opening batsmen in the first six overs.

Paul Miller was the one bright spot in a poor batting display, hitting some great shots on his way to a score of 53.

However, with little support from his teammates, Royston were bowled out for 103.
