Saffron Walden Cricket Club finally got their season up and running - as the first team won their first game in the East Anglian Premier League.

Playing at home to Ashmanaugh & Barton Wanderers, they posted a modest total of 179, thanks to some tail-end batting from Dan Farmer (34 not out) and Sam Robinson (27 not out), sharing a stand of 57 for the ninth wicket.

However, they controlled the game with the ball, Robinson taking 5-44 off 15.3 overs and dismissing Ashmanaugh for 121, claiming a 58-run victory.

And it was a good day across the rest of the club too.

The seconds earned a draw against Histon.

Chasing 242, they closed on 199-9 with strong batting contributions from Mihir Chandraker (40), Connor Cheverall (42), Jonny Rumsby (39) and Cameron Taylor (30).

The thirds convincingly defeated Madingley by seven wickets thanks to 77 from Felix Serby and 57 from Ray Mordini.

The fourths just lost out to Whittlesford, going down by three wickets, Charlie Rowlandson and Nick Hoyle making good contributions with the bat and Bertie Rodda taking three wickets.

High Roding got two wins out of three.

The firsts made it three from three, beating Basildon by 67 runs.

Charlie Knightley (25), Will Radbourne (26) and Freddie Duke (26) had the best scores with the bat while Archie Halls (3-21), Will Davis (3-20) and Travis Doyle (2-3) starred with ball in hand.

The seconds played the same club but fell to defeat.

Nadith Kumarapperuma took 3-26 but George Haddon's 39 was their best in reply as they were all out for 104.

The thirds won against Hockerill, Stanley Bellieu-Clarke getting four wickets while Tom Shrager led Roding's response with 67 and they reached the target with nine balls to spare.

Aythorpe Roding fell to a heavy defeat at Broomfield, losing by 232 runs.

The home side smashed 342-5 in their 5 overs, Azeem Akhtar managing 3-81 in nine overs for the visitors.

He then got 25, with Raj Kulasekara scoring 21, but they were all out for 110 inside 30 overs.
