Upper Clatford were crowned champions of Hampshire Cricket League's Regional Division 3 after their final match against Overton was cancelled due to a damp pitch.

Clatford, who have been beaten just once this season, were due to play fourth placed Overton on Saturday but the game was cancelled on Friday after rain made the pitch unplayable.

The cancellation meant that the league implemented an averaging system to decide the league winners.

This was despite Clatford's league rivals Totton and Eling III's completing a comprehensive nine wicket win over Farley II's.

A statement by the club following the result read: "We would like to thank all those involved in all the work behind the scene.

"People such as Alf Harding, Baz Baker, and Ian Mutton, not forgetting Janette and Guy Morgan as scorer and umpire for the whole season."
