Put into bat on a slow pitch, Andy Murphy's side were in trouble at 30 for 3 before Michael Rush (27) and Howard Chambers (30) put on 50.

They were dismissed in quick succession, though, and with other batsmen failing, the total slipped to a vulnerable 92 for 7.

Off-spinner Eric Latty then hit well to top score, with 37 and share another respectable half-century partnership with Jef Harvey, enabling captain Murphy to declare at 163 for 8 from 53 overs.

Andy Goulding produced an excellent opening spell, but Limpsfield started the last hour at 73 for 1.

Wickets in hand were the key as the home side passed the 138 for the winning draw and hit out for victory.

Goulding took two wickets in an over to finish with 4 for 26 from 11 overs, and with 10 needed from Latty's last over only five were scored, the final total being 159 for 6.
