CROPREDY'S last pair clung on for a draw in a low-scoring Division 3 match at home to Sandford St Martin.

Sandford elected to bat and were indebted to the experienced Phil Paterson's 39 as they were bowled out in the final over for 157.

The hosts' former Oxfordshire all-rounder Richard Lynch took 3-32 in his 11 overs.

James Risbridger then took 5-39 from 17 as the visitors all but clinched victory, but Cropredy hung on 139-9 to claim a share of the spoils.

Hanborough made the long trip to Long Marston and then watched the home side's openers put on 128 before they finally made a breakthrough.

Paul Marsh (59) was the man to go, but his partner and captain Mike Lyons went on to finish on 126 not out as the home side racked up 235-3 in an innings twice interrupted by rain and reduced to 40 overs.

After a steady start, Hanborough collapsed to 50-4, but Ben Glastonbury (71no) batted throughout to take his side to 140-7 at the close.

Witney Mills captain Pete Claridge was undefeated on 59 and his side handily placed on 105-1 after 26 overs when rain stopped play at Dinton 2nd.

The other two matches in the division, between Chearsley and Cumnor 2nd, and Kimble and Oxford & Bletchingdon Nondescripts did not start.
