Newly-crowned champions. Stradbroke A disposed of Needham Market's challenge without fuss, by 60 runs.
David Allum and Alan Barker opened up confidently, putting on 50 before Barker signed off with an elegant 22.
Allum had no thought of going anywhere, knowing that 46 runs would make him only the second Stradbroke player to score 1,000 runs in a season.
Stuart Taylor (33) guided him past this milestone, and yet another 50 during their stand of 74. Allum eventually went for 72.
