Aythorpe Roding and Terling had another good workout at the weekend after meeting in a pair of matches.

The two clubs met in a 20/20 fixture first of all, before then playing a 10-over per side match, with Terling coming out on top in both.

Aythorpe batted first in the longer format but were 28-4 after seven overs, before Neil Culleton (29 not out), Graham Milbank (17), Dave Mack (17) and Joe Apperley (12) saw them reach 98-8.

Humphries claimed 4-7 for Terling, as Spooner (2-28) nabbed a brace, but they lost two early wickets before going on to seal a five-wicket win as Wager (32 not out) and Oldham (22) played leading roles with the bat.

Captain Andy Clarke (2-20) was Aythorpe’s most successful bowler, as Josh Woodmore (1-6), Luke Wharton (1-16) and Milbank (1-25) also struck.
