Another round of intriguing results in the Cain & Fuller CDCA Division One this week with league leaders Oaksey marching on while their nearest challengers falter.

The latest Oaksey win came at Avening & Cherington where a fine unbeaten knock by Tom Cook (93), with good support from skipper Andy Steward (47) and Abrar Qureshi (29), allowed the visitors to post 211-4.

Bruce Walker (44) gave the hosts a good start in reply but good bowling from Matt Denney (3-28) pegged them back. The hosts fell well short on 178-7 at the close.

Ashton Keynes completed the double over second placed Barnsley Beeches.

Ashton's 194-9 was mainly thanks to Will Shelley (87) while Akalanka Udara (2-21), Jay Thomson (2-29) and Tom Dykes (2-44) were the pick of the Barnsley bowlers.

After tea openers Yohan Darmathileka (53) and Andrew Walker (31) gave the hosts an excellent start but the introduction of slow bowling proved a turning point as Tom Waller (4-13) made the breakthrough then Jack Thomas (4-12) precipitated a collapse with Barnsley being bowled out on 132.

Minety & Northleach remain in contention after a good win at home to Longborough & Sezincote. Openers Tony Gardner (69) and Giles Wellman (45) laid an excellent platform but a good spell from Joe Newbould (3-27) restricted the hosts to 179-7. A good spell from Darren Hall (3-43) put pressure on the visitors but runs from Ryan Theron (43), Josh Newbould (36) and John Mutsaars (29) brought them back into the contest. However skipper Tony Gardner (4-24) capped a fine all round performance as Longborough were bowled out for 152 in 29 overs.

South Cerney gave themselves a much needed boost with a good win at Oakridge. The hosts started well enough with Ed Bryant (38) looking dangerous but he received little support as Chris Wearing (2-35) and Matt Hicks (2-25) took vital wickets then Jason Stevens (4-18) cleaned up the tail to restrict Oakridge to 119 all out. South Cerney also found batting difficult as Ben Woodcock (2-15) and Sam Grimstead (2-28) bowled well. However James Bayliss (26) and Matt Hicks (24) saw the visitors home at 121-6 with 8 overs to spare.

Elsewhere, Fairford 2nd XI won comfortably at Bibury to give them only their second win of the season.
