Stradbroke Cricket Club’s (127) dream of playing at Lords fell at the first hurdle as they were eliminated from the Davidstow National Village Cup at West Bergholt (267-7).

The home side racked up 276-7, with Wheeler (74) and Taylor (86no) impressing. Seven Stradbroke bowlers toiled in the sunshine with Fergus Morgan (3-61), the most successful.

In reply, Matt Wise (45) used his time in the middle to play some aggressive shots with Morgan (22) and Tom Smith (16) supporting but unable to prevent a defeat.
