Burton Latimer pulled off perhaps the shock of the Northamptonshire Cricket League Premier Division season as they beat title hopefuls Northampton Saints by eight wickets.

The strugglers, who started the day second from bottom, dismissed Saints for just 69 with Mehul Adati taking 6-12.

The last nine wickets fell for just 39 runs as the visiting side slipped from 33-1.

The result was a gift for leaders Peterborough, who had thumped Burton the week before.

They took maximum points from their clash with Wollaston.

Having posted 186 they then bowled out the home side for just 70.

Finedon Dolben were also winners - but only just.

Having bowled out Rushton for 96 - Will Sneath and Chris Goode sharing all the wickets between - Finedon limped to victory with just two wickets in hand.

Old Northamptonians continued their good season by crushing Wellingborough Town.

Afaq Babar’s 8-32 destroyed Boro as they were all out for 49 in a defeat by 139 runs.

Horton House remain bottom despite picking up their first win of the season, at home to Stony Stratford, while Brixworth beat the Academy by 34 runs.

In Division One, Oundle went top of the table as they collected their ninth victory of the season.
