MORETON-in-Marsh beat fellow strugglers Norton Lindsey seconds by 62 runs in Cotswold Hills Cricket League Division Two.

Remarkable batting from openers Dave Williams and Greg Stotesbury led to Moreton posting 266-0 in their 45 overs.

Williams raced to his hundred and continued to bat positively, while Stotesbury was more reserved and hit two from the final ball for his century.

Moreton bowled well through M Banderia, C Millard, H Mercer and N Jeffries before Williams bowled 10 overs.

Banderia returned to take a wicket before spinners G Jones and Stotesbury saw Moreton comfortably defend their total, with Norton finishing on 204-7.

Moreton will host Gloucestershire Ladies against their Buckinghamshire counterparts on Sunday (11am).
