However, Luke Bennett continued his recent fine form and took the game away from the visitors in a 152-run partnership with Dave Barlett (33).

Roy Izzard had the most economical bowling spell with 3-41 and the only maiden of the day! Scott Crouch took 3-51 and Peter Robinson 1-30.

Richard Peareth dominated the innings with a superb maiden century and he hit the ball to all corners in his 104.
Good support came from Robinson (26), Dan Watson (26) and John Clark (17) but the task proved beyond Ickleford as they were all out for 242.
