Abingdon Vale 2nd stay in the promotion picture, but nearly blew their chances at basement boys Brackley.
Luke Mitchell (5-20) bowled beautifully to dismiss Brackley for only 128, which would have been even lower without James Timmis’s 51.
Vale then struggled against Keith Cartwright (4-33), but just about scrambled their way to 129-9 with one over to spare.

Assif Hussain (67) and Andrew Stevens (36) were the mainstays of Banbury 4th’s 158 all out from 50 overs at home to Thame Town 2nd.
Ian McStay (4-34) was the pick of the visitors’ attack.
Adil Hussain then took 5-81 and Stevens claimed 3-52, but Richard Carr (40no) held his nerve to steer Thame to 160-8 and a two-wicket victory.
