BASINGSTOKE and North Hants seconds needed to win their final game against champions Totton and Eling and South Wilts had to lose to Langley Manor if they were to stay in the Southern League Division Two,

The Bountymen managed to achieve what they needed to do winning by 61 runs, but South Wilts crushed Langley bowling them out for 141 after scoring 327-2.

Basingstoke's game at May's Bounty was not so high scoring as home side won the toss and batted first scoring 209.

Scott Dyer was the star of the show with an excellent 76 which came off 92 balls and included 12 fours.

Matt Thankachan also hit a very useful 41 coming in at number eight.

The visitor's reply was rocked early on as Mitch Stokes (2-42) and Chris Chandler (1-21) got amongst the top order.

However, from 24-3, they recovered to 101 thanks to Owen Morris (50) and Bothwell Chapungu (41).

Both were removed by spinner Thankachan and fellow spin kings Rakitha Perera (2-41) and Keith Harris (3-23) spelled the end for Totton as they were bowled out for 148.
