THATCHAM look like heaving a sigh of relief face after their anxious wait to know if they they are safe from the drop from Division Two B of the Morrant Thames Valley League.

Saturday’s decimated league programme saw Thatcham among the victims when play was halted when they were 55-2 in reply to visiting Slough II’s 152 all out.

That left Burnham II to pockets three extra points after they had managed to bat out their innings to score 267-8 against Royal Ascot, picking up 10 points while Thatcham had to settle for the statutory seven.

Thatcham now finish third from bottom in the table with 228 points, but the Marlow Park side that claimed that position in Division Two A could muster only 221, despite a 10-point final game return.

Falkland’s Division One game with Stoke Green was abandoned after Falkland had posted 122-5, while Division Three saw Newbury halted at 6-1 in reply to Purley’s 226-8 while Falkland were beaten by nine wickets by Sonning, who bowled out Falkland for only 90.
