Danny Haynes hit a second successive half-century as he led Wisbech Town to Cambs & Hunts Premier League victory last Saturday.

Gary Freear’s men eased to a 117-run victory against struggling Waresley at Harecroft Road in Whiting & Partners Division One.

Opener Haynes cracked a dozen boundaries during his innings of 80 which provided almost a third of Wisbech’s 241-9 total. It also followed up a knock of 74 in a defeat at Saffron Walden the previous Saturday.

There were other solid contributions against Waresley as wicket-keeper Josh Bowers added 38, Sam Albutt reached 37 and Cambridgeshire captain James Williams chipped in with 36.

That hefty Wisbech tally predictably proved beyond their second-bottom visitors who were dismissed for just 124.

Wisbech are without a game tomorrow, but they are in action on Sunday in a crunch Rutland League clash.
