Sarisbury Athletic, who missed promotion to South East Hants Indoor League, Division 1 by one point last winter, are determined not to miss the boat again, writes Mike Vimpany.

They extended their lead at the top of Division 2 with a 41-run win over Fareham & Crofton B - Graham Saunders, Bob Joyce and Steve Roberts setting up the victory.

Neighbours Locks Heath, lingering nervously on the brink of the danger zone, probably ensured safety by beating Portsmouth.

Scott Jones was the inspiration behind the Heathen's success.

No change at the Division 1 summit, where Purbrook's relentless march towards the title continued with a thumping 77-run win over Bedhampton.
