Another poor batting performance led to another home defeat which all but relegates Egerton Park Second XI.

Asked to bat first, Park raced out the blocks with Tyler and Lees putting on 28 before three quick wickets slowed things down.

Mould (31) and Creed (31) picked up the tempo again, along with a quick 15 from Rivers, but as so often this season, wickets fell and Park could only reach 138-8 off their 45 overs.

An early wicket from Rivers and a sharp run-out by Burdett reduced Uppingham to 34-2 and gave Park half a chance of an unlikely win.

But an outstanding 74 from Munir and a succession of byes saw the visitors home without much trouble.

Park: Tyler 18, Lees 5, Burdett 1, Mould 31, Creed 31, Rivers 15, Webster 2, Beeken 5, Lovegrove 1, Barber 5, Extras 24. Total: 138-8.

Uppingham: 139-2.
