Thriplow seconds saw their chances of a win disappear as Romsey captain Owen dragged his side to victory.

Opening batsmen John Anderson and Duncan Walker (11) started brightly until Walker was out.

They then lost Nathan Sugden (0), before captain Martin Dabnor joined Anderson, and the pair quickly set about rebuilding the Thriplow innings.

But when Anderson dragged the ball onto his stumps, Thriplow were 67-3.

Dan Carr (10) was also bowled by Mortlock, with Gary Walters (3) and Collins(6) following soon after to put Thriplow on 117-6.

Dabnor was bowled by his opposition captain Owen for 56 and Thriplow were dismissed for 150.

Romsey's Page and Woolf set about the run chase in cavalier fashion, despite opening bowler Nathan Sugden who eventually took three wickets.

Thriplow then turned to the spin of Carr and were rewarded with two more wickets that rocked Romsey to 86-5.

Romsey took the score beyond 100, but two further wickets and one a great Goodacre catch later the hosts were precariously placed at 103-7.

But Thriplow were frustrated by Owen and Mortlock who chased down the target, despite tight bowling and excellent fielding.
