Cherry Willingham 1st X1 extended their lead at the top of the table after their magnificent 144 run victory over Barton Town CC.

Cherry hit 273 for seven thanks largely to captain Will Carter’s unbeaten 136 and wicketkeeper Craig Cosgrove who smashed 73.

The win puts the Lincoln outfit 32 points ahead of second-placed Alford CC who have played one more game than the leaders.
