Elsewhere, Dinton moved 13 points clear at the top of the same division with an impressive win over Gerrards Cross at the weekend.

The highlights of the day were undoubtedly a five-wicket haul from Faisal Ali and 102 from captain, Mike Sutliff.

The results leave Dinton clear of local rivals Aston Rowant, who they travel to play in a juicy clash top of the table clash at the weekend.
