3 wins on Saturday and promotion for the super blues!

Saturday was a good day all round with Ipswich winning promotion to the Premier League and Bury St Edmunds three teams all winning, unfortunately no 4th team game as the opponents could not field a team.
At the Victory Ground in the Thurlow Nunn East Anglian Premier League home captain Josh Cantrell won the toss and elected to field which proved a good choice as visitors Witham were soon 2 wickets down for just 4 runs. Tom Rash taking the two wickets, Luke Georgeson caught and bowled second ball and Oliver Riddick taking the catch to dismiss Jake Wakelin for 3. Mark Smith had Chris Huntington caught by Rash for 24. Former Norwich City player Cody McDonald was out for 1 caught Sean Park off Cantrell and at 47.4 the match was very much in favour of the home team this became 53.5 as Leroy Facey was bowled by Alex Cruickshank and soon 62.6 as Ben Whittaker took the wicket of Michael Godwin (23) caught by Alex Maynard. There followed a useful stand of 50 runs broken by Jack Howlands excellent run out of Ben Tinham (28). Kaan Hawes batted well before Rash bowled him for 25 a further wicket for Smith and a final run out by Rash saw Witham dismissed for 123.
The Bury reply was steady the early wicket of Maynard out caught Wakelin bowled Christopher Garrod for 7 and Will Routledge out for 10 but Nikethan Radhakrishan (65) batted very well adding the 80 runs needed with Cantrell (32) both were not out taking the score to 124.2 and a second win in three games.
Bury’s 2nd team travelled to Felixstowe the home side were put into bat by James Sturgeon and were all out for 110.
