BERKSHIRE, Chilterns & Mid Bucks Championship winners Chalfont St Giles ended their campaign in style with a seven-wicket thrashing of basement boys Crowthorne & Crown Wood, writes Richard Ashton.

Richard Dean (5-12) did the early damage for the visitors as they bowled the Crows out for 66, and despite Marvin Vogel taking 3-28 in the Chalfont reply, the champions cruised to 67-3 in the 16th over.

Rampant Harpsden wrapped up the runners-up spot with a five-wicket victory at home to Penn & Tylers Green in a low-scoring encounter.

Seamers Tom Hancock (6-25) and Abdul Khaliq (3-11) were in inspired form as Penn were skittled for a mere 39, and despite Matt Lance grabbing 3-20 in reply, Harpsden raced to 43-5 in 8.5 overs.

Peppard Stoke Row finished third following their draw at Ley Hill.

The visitors piled the runs on after choosing to bat, with Senthil Muniasamy (75 from 50 balls), Dan Hayden (74 off 35 including six maximums) and Scott Harris (52 from 48) all batting aggresively in the middle order to take PSR to a huge 372.

Craig Ottaway (4-71) was the pick of the attack, while leg-spinner Lewis Thompson snared 3-109 in his 15 overs.

Craig Peterson and Ben Ford gave the hosts a steady start until Harris (3-46) was bowled the former, and when they slipped to 143-6 a heavy defeat appeared on the cards.

However, Ottaway (51 from 35 balls) counter-attacked before Scott Peterson and Josh Rennie blocked out the last few overs to take their side to 221-7.

Relegated Welford Park upset Ruislip Victoria to record just their second win of the season.

Zafran Akhtar (40) and skipper Kashif Maan (65) gave the Victorians a perfect base with an opening stand of 116, but Ian Herrington (4-25) then worked his way through the lower and middle order to help bowl Ruislip out for 207 in 46 overs.

Akhtar (4-39) also impressed with the ball, but fine knocks from Jacob McManus (77no) and Austin Keep (60no) got Welford (211-7) over the line with four balls to spare.

Yaser Ahmed’s 49 helped Braywood to a 39-run victory at home to West Reading.

Atif Nasim took 3-49 as the hosts posted 222-8, and despite Adam Davidson’s knock of 65, Wests were bowled out for 183, Faisal Malik (5-37) and Mujtaba Ahmed (3-54) doing most of the damage.
