A cracking century from Nick Meadows was not enough to earn Challow & Childrey victory at Long Marston.

Meadows’s 130 was the backbone behind Challow’s 262-6, but the home side batted out for a draw thanks to dogged contributions from Will Dallimore (84) and Harry Bowles (48).

Joe Harris took 4-49 for Challow.

Great & Little Tew’s 107-run win over Sandford St Martin as marred by a nasty injury to Sandford’s Phil Paterson.

Batting without a helmet, he was hit in the face by a delivery and needed hospital treatment.

That came after Tew had made 207, Aussie Antony Smith top-scoring with 52, while Simon Smith retur-ned 5-63.

Lloyd Brock (4-23) and Smith (4-29) then worked their way through the Sandford batting and Paterson’s injury meant they finished on 100 all out.

Great & Little Tew 25, Sandford 6.

Bottom-of-the-table Han-borough were no match for Banbury 2nd, who won by six wickets.

Hanborough made 189-9 as Paul Hill claimed 4-59, but Banbury made light work of reaching the target thanks to Simon Hole (75) and Lloyd Sabin (74no).

Hanborough 7, Banbury 2nd 25.
