RAIN hampered our sides as Gerrards Cross slipped closer towards relegation and Chesham lost their grip on the title.

In the Home Counties Division Two West, the Cross slipped to a five wicket defeat at Burnham in a rain-affected game to leave them seven points adrift.

In the Morrants Thames Valley League Division One, Chesham saw their game at Sonning abandoned with the home side on 25-1 meaning they were awarded seven points.

But just four miles down the road, title rivals Wokingham managed to secure a maximum 25 points as their game went ahead.
