SANDHURST suffered a dire batting collapse as a 185-run defeat at home to Goring led to their relegation from the Premier Division, writes Richard Ashton.

George Taylor hammered 66 from just 29 balls, Chris Walsh made 59 and youngster Toby Winterbottom 54 as the visitors amassed 231-6 from their 45 overs.

The Camels reply never got going as Chris Winterbottom – whose son Jack made his Middlesex 2nds debut during the week – rolled back the years to take 7-12 and skittle the hosts for just 46.

Mortimer West End snatched second spot with a crushing 163-run home win against Woodcote.

Adam Telford (51no), Jason Searancke (50) and Steve Audsley (43) were all among the runs as the hosts posted 226-7, Ryan van Heerden the pick of the Cote attack with 4-64.

Woodcote started reasonably in reaching 43-1, but they then found West End captain Nick Kingston (6-20) too hot to handle as they crumbled to 63 all out.

Mortimer West End will now face Ballinger Waggoners at Harpsden in a play-off to decide who is promoted to the BCMB Championship on Saturday.

Welford Park 2nds won a thrilling game at Sulhamstead 3rds by eight runs.

Suvo Datta cracked 72 off 77 balls as Welford posted 210-9, and despite the in-form Madhur Sharma’s breath-taking 108 not out from 71 balls – which included eight maximums – Sully were restricted to 202-6.

Ian Millson’s unbeaten 57 played a key role as Knowl Hill (192-6) beat Purley on Thames 3rds (177) by 15 runs.

Division Three champions Mortimer West End 2nds completed a perfect season with an eight-wicket victory against Binfield 3rds, their 14th win from as many games.
