Skipper Hamilton blasts a ton for Burnham

First published in Local Sport

A superb unbeaten century by captain Jamie Hamilton inspired promotion-chasing Burnham Sports to a tense three-run victory away to South Weald.

Hamilton thumped 101 not out to help his team accumulate 251 for seven from their allotted 45 overs in the T-Rippon first division fixture.

South Weald almost spoilt his party, though, coming within one more blow of pulling off an unlikely success.

The home side, bottom of the table and struggling to avoid relegation, required 80 from the final ten overs and arrived at the final one, bowled by Fuad Ahmed, needing 13.

The eighth-wicket pair of Harle (25 not out) and Pye (20 not out) did their utmost but came up just short.
