Lidlington clinched promotion to Morrants Four Counties Cricket League Division Five with an eight-wicket victory over Newport Pagnell II.

Put in to bat, Newport Pagnell struggled to contain the Lidlington bowling attack and were soon bowled out for 88 - with Lidlington’s Jake Hiscocks (3-27), Mike Eames (4-30) and David Whitfield (3-19) doing the damage. Only Newport’s Daniel Broad (28) made any real impact.

In reply, Lidlington lost an early wicket but a fine attacking 40 by Hamayun Shahid put his side in pole position.

That left John Richardson (22 n/o) and Nadeem Ahmed (17 n/o) to ease Lidlington through to an eight-wicket victory to clinch promotion to Division Five.
