Rushden still top the Hevey Building Supplies Northamptonshire Cricket League despite suffering their first defeat of the season.

They suffered at the hands of former County man Rob White who starred with bat and ball in a 107-run success for Old Northamptonians.

White hit 80 - supported by 55 from Zaakir Khawaja - as ONs posted 209-6 in their rain-affected 49 overs.

He then followed that up by taking 4-24 as Rushden slumped to 102 all out despite 53 from Mikey Phillips.

Champions Peterborough are lurking ominously in second place after a third loss on title hopefuls Finedon Dolben.

Having been bowled out for 186 (Ben Howgego 41, Greg Evans 45), Finedon were unable to contain their opponents who reached their target with five wickets in hand.

England Under-19s star Rob Sayer was the man who set up the victory only to fall two short of his century.

Rushton completed a demolition job on strugglers Wollaston.

Ben Mansell smacked a fine 130 as the Station Road men raced to 243-4 declared in 37.2 overs.

Mansell reached his 50 in 41 balls and his hundred came up from just 86 deliveries. Andy Reynoldson helped out with 62.

It was then left to the bowlers to complete the job with Marc Jackson’s impressive 9-5-13-4 leading the way.

Wollaston were all out for 87 which could have been a whole lot worse were it not for a defiant 21 not out from 66 balls by Mark Carter as they recovered slightly from 47-8.

Things get no better for rock-bottom Burton Latimer who lost by eight wickets to Northampton Saints.

Burton were rolled out for only 63 by Ali Hasnain (12.4-3-25-5) and Saints cruised home losing just a couple of wickets in the process.

Horton House continued their impressive start to the summer by picking up their fifth win.

Brixworth recovered from 48-5 and 102-6 to register 165 all out.

But it was not enough as Leo Carter (60) and Elliott Ruff (53no) guided the House to a four-wicket verdict.

Oundle sit comfortably in mid-table after getting the better of Stony Stratford.

The Buckinghamshire hosts were dismissed for 86 - a score Oundle reached for the loss of five men.
