HARTLEY Wintney eased their relegation worries in Southern League Division Two after they bowled Paultons out for 51 to win away by 128 runs.

Having been put into bat, Hartley openers Will Kerr (37) and Hugo Hammond (16) put on 56 for the first wicket.

After the loss of three wickets, Jason Knibbs (27) and Dan Wrenn (17) took the total past 100 and further double figure knocks from Jonny Kerr (12) Matt Digweed (23) and Daniel Nighingale (14) helped the side to 179-9.

The Paultons reply was soon in trouble as Anthony Parson (3-20) took out their top three with only nine scored.

It then became 10-4 as fellow opening bowler Jamie Teale struck.

George Condon (30) and Nathan Feltham (12) moved the score to 37, before Harry Broderick (3-5) took his first wicket and Condon was bowled by Knibbs (2-9) as Paultons lost their final five wickets for just two runs.

This Saturday, Hartley entertain Basingstoke and North Hants seconds.
