Latest match news:


Back-to-back wins for the first time this season in Whitings League Division 1 has boosted the 1st XI's levels of confidence and thrown them a lifeline against relegation, having beaten bottom club
St Ives by 103 runs at The Avenue on Saturday.

Consistent runs all the way down the order gave them a healthy 230 run total before tea, with skipper Tyler Phillips leading the way with a knock of 40. He was supported by his brother Brandon (34), Aussie Clinton Bricker (33) and four further contributions.

However, the smile went from the skipper's face when a routine slip catch was dropped off his bowling early on proved to be costly, as the visitors romped to 99-2 off 22 overs.

Sam Clarke made the vital breakthrough on his way to figures of 3-20 and with Andy Wright and Tommy Howgego each picking up a brace, 10-man St Ives were bowled out for 127.
March 1st XI 230 all out, 48.3 overs, (Tyler Phillips 40, Brandon Phillips 34, Clinton Bricker 33, Ben Pyle 26, Ben Chapman 22, Sam Clarke 21, Lewis Welcher 19), St Ives 127 all out, 29.2 overs (Sam Clarke 3-20, Tommy Howgego 2-5, Andy Wright 2-30).


The 2nd XI's struggles in the lower reaches of CCA Senior League Division 2 continue, following a narrow seven run defeat away to close rivals Hardwick.

March allowed the home side to score 50 runs more than they should have in the 203-9 total. Richard Green took 3-32 and James Harradine 2-39.

An excellent second wicket stand of 113 between Harradine (43) and Curtis Oldroyd (53) put them in a strong position after 24 overs.

However, four run outs saw them bowled out for 196, having needed 12 runs off the last over. Skipper Matty Vail returned to form with an unbeaten 46.
Hardwick 203-9, 45 overs, (Richard Green 3-32, James Harradine 2-39, Phil Goodfellow 1-24, Steve Coe 1-26), March 2nd XI 196 all out, 44.3 overs (Curtis Oldroyd 53, Matty Vail 46no, James Harradine 43).


Top of the table Coton again proved too strong for the 3rd XI, who lost by 121 runs at Doddington on Saturday in CCA Junior League Division 3N.

The visitors were dismissed for 202 thanks to a 4-20 spell from Harry Stevens and
2-36 from Shae Pooley.

But in reply, March only managed 81, with Will Curtis scoring 37.
Coton 202 all out, 37.4 overs (Harry Stevens 4-20, Shae Pooley 2-36, Will Curtis 1-24, Dan Bradshaw 1-28, Sam Mason 1-31), March 3rd XI 81 all out, 20.1 overs (Will Curtis 37).


The Sunday 1st XI are looking a good bet for promotion to Rutland League Division 1, after putting title rivals Kings Keys into a spin at The Avenue.

With just two games remaining, March have a 19 point advantage over Kings Keys, who have a game in hand. However, the visitors couldn't handle the slow bowlers in the top clash as Steve Coe (5-34) and Geoff Kirby (3-49) weaved their magic in a vital 61 run victory - eight catches being taken during the innings.

The visitors slumped from 134-2 to 182 all out, in reply to the March total of 243-6. Vice-captain Brandon Phillips was again on fire as he struck 82 runs off 53 balls - an innings that included 12 boundaries, three of which sailed over the ropes! Ben Chapman remained unbeaten on 55 and Curtis Oldroyd added a further 46 runs to an already impressive season.
March 1st XI 243-6, 45 overs (Brandon Phillips 82, Ben Chapman 55no, Curtis Oldroyd 46, Rob Moden 32), Kings Keys 182 all out, 35.5 overs (Steve Coe 5-34, Geoff Kirby 3-49).


A weakened Sunday 2nd XI were beaten for only the second time this season in the Fenland Trophy, when they lost to Khalsa by six wickets.

Shae Pooley and Dan Bradshaw were the only batsmen to make double figures as March were dismissed for a meagre 60 runs.

Pooley then took 2-11 in the Khalsa total of 61-4.
March 2nd XI 60 all out, 17.5 overs (Dan Bradshaw 10no, Shae Pooley 10), Khalsa 61-4, 15.4 overs (Shae Pooley 2-11, Charlie Revell 1-12.
