Malden Wanderers suffered a second relegation in three years on Saturday as they limply surrendered their Surrey Championship Division One status at promoted Cranleigh.

Skipper Alex Butler, standing in for James Wackett, saw his side post 134 all out from 47.2 overs, on their way to a four wicket defeat.

It could have been worse as they were reduced to 20-5 before Jackson Wood’s 47 from 95 balls and veteran spinner Giles Puckle’s 18 from 60 balls brought some respectability.

Cranleigh were well ahead of the required rate at 108-6 when the rain came, but the win was not enough for them to pip Valley End to the title.

It completed a miserable last few seasons for the Cambridge Avenue outfit, who were in the top flight as recently as 2013.

Walton on Thames, who lost at Banstead, finished their first season back in Division One 11 points above the drop in seventh.

East Molesey survived the Premier Division chop thanks to a seven wicket final day win over relegated Beddington that saw them stay above fellow strugglers Sutton, who won at Weybridge.

Star batsman Jahangir Mirza took his Surrey Championship Division Four run tally to 807 as Kingstonian ended their title winning campaign with defeat at Hampton Wick Royal.
