Bragbury are the Saracens Herts League Division 10 champions this season.

A win on Saturday against Old Elizabethans 2nds saw them take the title with a match still to play.

Bragbury, eager to play following two rained off weeks, won the toss and elected to field.

With four points needed for automatic promotion for the second season running, things looked good as wickets fell at regular intervals.

Old Elizabethans, struggling in the gloomy conditions, were finally bowled out in the 53rd over for 142 to guarantee promotion. Craig Braine, bowling unchanged from one end, finished with best ever figures of 6-67.

In reply, Bragbury made a slow start and after 27 overs, they had scored a measly 40 runs but only two wickets had fallen. Bragbury then rose to their challenge and passed the target with more than two overs to spare.
