Peter Bone (3-55) had earlier got OGs back into it after openers Danny Sumford (36) and Johnny Ashwin (39) had given the hosts a good start.

Paul Carter (70no) then batted through OGs’ reply but Luke Bartaby (21) was the only other man to pass 20 as they ended up falling well short at 177-8 in 45 overs. Uppingham 29pts, Old Grammarians 3rd 6.
