Pinchbeck were comfortably beaten on Saturday as Sutton 2nd maintained their place at the top.

After inserting the hosts, skipper James Langford gave his side a boost with the early wicket of Jordan Keeble.

But Sutton seized the momentum through Andy Wright (42) and Aaron John (37). James Cole (3-48) provided a breakthrough but Danny Sisson got a quick 21 before Pinchbeck reduced the total to 130-5.

Home skipper Gary Burton (35) and Jake Sayer (15) responded with positive knocks before Langford (3-39) returned to grab two more wickets as the total closed on 203 for 8.

Some excellent bowling from Brett Sayer (1-15) and Keeble (1-10) made it tough for Pinchbeck as they set about their run chase and they were always behind the rate. Rob Simpson (2-43) and James Baker (2-30) made things tougher still.

A busy knock from Harry Waine (34no) and a swift 22 from Langford saw the total past 100 but Burton (4-3) snared the tail to leave Pinchbeck 117 all out.
