Batting first the Town encountered few problems with the Cricklade attack as 14-year old Kit Penny (78) and Duncan Battishill (72no) shared a prolific stand for the second wicket before Seb Ellis hit a rapid 26 to take the total to 225-5 off their 40 overs.
Cricklade openers Dunmore and Dewsbury gave the visitors a steady start in reply, but once they departed wickets fell at regular intervals with Mike Howell, Henry Elsey and Tom Rutter all bowling well as Cricklade were all out for 83.
