A sparkling 120 from James Neilson set Cumnor on their way to a crushing 146-run home Division 1 victory over Shipton-under- Wychwood. Neilson added 187 for the fourth wicket with captain Geoff Walford (79) to set up a declaration after 49 overs with the score on 296-6.

Medium pacer Robert Pyke took 4-67 for Shipton, but he was eclipsed by the home side's Gareth Brown who took the last six wickets to fall as the visitors fell for 150.

Cumnor 30pts, Shipton-under-Wychwood 12.

Great & Little Tew stay top despite suffering their first defeat when they lost by 48 runs at home to Banbury 2nd. Tew did not help themselves by conceding 58 extras, including 43 wides, as Banbury accumulated 238-5, thanks also to Will Cooper (58) and Chris Board (65no).

Paceman Simon Launder then blew away half the Tew batsmen to finish with 5-32, and despite resistance from Lloyd Brock (91), they were dismissed in the penultimate over for 190.

Great & Little Tew 13, Banbury 2nd 30.

Banbury Twenty's Steve Partington produced an outstanding spell of off spin to take 5-19, reducing Milton Keynes Park from 91-2 to 146 all out, and seemingly set up a straight-forward run chase.

But all-rounder Graham Simpson had other ideas, following up his 47 with 5-29 as Twenty were rolled over for 126.

Skipper Simpson ran through the tail after opening bowler Mark Roberts (4-61) made early inroads.

The other wicket was the result of a run out engineered by James Sprittles to remove top scorer Time Pearce (38).

Milton Keynes Park 30, Banbury XX 7.

Marc Milligan hit a marvellous 102 not out as Oxford Downs brushed aside Dinton to collect their first win of the season.

Dinton chose to bat, but failed to use all their allocated overs when they were bowled out for 193 with 30 balls unused.

James Tovey (53) and Richard Scott (44) were in the runs for the hosts, while Chris Sandbach (3-34) and Milligan (3-42) were the pick of the bowlers.

Downs had 55 overs to achieve victory, but needed only 41 as they eased home by six wickets.

Dinton 12, Oxford Downs 30.

Bicester & North Oxford had no answer to the opening burst of Buckingham Town seamer Greg Pearson and were eventually all out for 133.

Pearson took the first six wickets to fall, but could not add to his tally and finished with figures of 6-30.

Earlier, Town had made 204-9 after being asked to bat, thanks to Tomlinson brothers James (48) and Leigh (41).
