Banbury slipped down to fourth in division one of the Home Counties Premier Cricket League following Saturday’s abandoned game at Slough

Last year’s champions High Wycombe went above them on the final day after their final day victory.

I looked upon this year as a transitional one with a lot of young players coming through

Champions Finchampstead finished well clear of the rest. Runners-up Henley were 35 points behind the champions.

But looking back on his first season in change, Banbury captain Lloyd Sabin said: “I’ve really enjoyed my first season as captain.

“The only disappointment was finishing fourth because I believe we deserved better than that but the weather has hampered us a few times this year.

“I always looked upon this year as a transitional one for the club with a lot of young players coming through. Now I’m hoping that with a year under their belts they will be able to push on next season.

“I had great support from all the players, from the younger ones to the more experienced ones, particularly Craig Haupt and Luke Ryan, I couldn’t have asked for more from them.

“It was good to see Craig back after missing last year through a serious injury.”
