Skipper James Wackett praised five-wicket star Kevin Boudville as Malden Wanderers secured survival in Division One of the Surrey Championships.

Boudville took 5-25 off 10 overs as Wanderers restricted Farnham to 192 – a target they passed inside 42 overs, thanks in part to Pete Young’s knock (50).

Wackett said: “Kev bowled a succession of tight overs and ultimately took the wickets that meant we were chasing a score that was slightly below par.

“Our run chase was expertly handled by Pete Young, with good contributions from Alex Butler, Will Clapp and Alex Redmayne in drizzly and tricky conditions for their bowlers.”

At the other end of the table, a win at Banstead will secure East Molesey’s elevation to the Premier Division thanks to last weekend’s nine-run win on Duckworth Lewis (DL) over Old Whitgiftians.

Elsewhere, Chessington need to win their final game at Division Two champions Walton-on-Thames, and hope Old Rutlishians slip up at Worcester Park, if they are to win promotion as runners up.

Their plight would have been better had they beaten Old Ruts on Saturday before the rain forced their clash to be abandoned.

As for Walton-on-Thames, with the Division Two title already in the bag, they show no sign of letting up with a fifth consecutive win, this time by nine wickets over Purley.

Anthony Alleyne took a stunning 6-15 in 8.2 overs as Purley were skittled for 146 – a target passed with ease thanks to Sam Gorvin (51*) and Alleyne (81*).

Weybridge, in third, are in danger of ending their Premier Division campaign on a losing streak, having gone down by three wickets on DL at Beddington.

Four points from an abandoned game was enough for Weybridge Vandals to secure promotion as runners-up in Division Five.

However, had the Vandals beaten top of the table Sanderstead before the rain came, they would have taken the title fight to the last weekend.

This weekend’s fixtures: Sunbury v Weybridge, Malden Wanderers v Chipstead Coulsdon & Walcountians, Banstead v East Molesey, Walton-on-Thames v Chessington, Weybridge Vandals v Maori Oxshott.
