Peterborough Town seal 2019 Northants Premier Division title

Posted by Richard Kendall on 8 October 2019

Peterborough Town 1st XI secured the 2019 Northants League Premier Division title with an emphatic seven-wicket win over relegated Wollaston on 21st September.

Alan Swann wrote: "The city side weren’t unduly troubled as they sought the handful of points to fight off the challenge of reigning champions Finedon.

"In truth the 15-point gap between the top two flattered the runners-up as Town won 17 of their 22 matches compared to 15 wins for Finedon. Town also lost half as many games (2) as their closest rivals.

"The title success completes a remarkable decade for Town who have not finished out of the top three since 2009.

"They’ve finished top four times, second four times and the third on two occasions in the last 10 years, although this was the first title since completing a hat-trick of top spots in 2014."

In the final game of the season, a spell of 5-23 from off-spinner Lewis Bruce help to ensure Wollaston collapsed from 75-3 to 109 all out.

Mohammed Danyaal with 2-23 bowled well at the start of the innings.

Then Josh Smith with 41 and captain David Clarke with 31 top scored for PTCC, who completed the chase in under 23 overs.

Fittingly, Rob Sayer cracked the title-clinching boundary in his last innings for the club as he moves to Australia this winter.
