There was joy for Ashwell, who were crowned Cambs Junior League Division Two champions after beating Steeple Morden.
Vice captain Jonathan Merrell said: "We were always confident we could do well this year after coming second last time round. We've got a strong side and everyone contributed to our title.
"Tim Moynihan has been very influential as captain, getting us organised and making sure everyone is available. Gary Simmons has had a great season too, taking 20 wickets at eight apiece and averaging over 50 with the bat."
Merrell joked: "Maybe we will organise an open-top bus tour of Ashwell to celebrate!"
