Camborne sit proudly at the top of the ECB Cornwall Premier cricket League after they defeated Callington by four wickets at Roskear on Saturday.

The league's new boys have certainly made an impressive start to their campaign back in the higher echelons of Cornish cricket.

Callington took first knock and soon lost a wicket without a run on the board when Farris was bowled by Scott Curnow.

Andy Hocking was next to go, caught by Malcolm Pooley off Harris for 26.

Opener Andrew Jones, who played a solid innings, was eventually weeded out with the score on 74. In his knock he hit six fours before Bostock bowled him after facing 75 balls.

Four other visiting players got into double figures, Jamie Shorten (18), James Maunder (160, Colin Kitts (13), but it was number nine Ian Hunn the third highest-scoring batsman on 22 not out who helped Callington reach the more respectable total of 155 after they looked as if they would make only a few runs over the hundred..

Shorland, with 3-19 from 11 overs, was the best of the home bowlers, and Bostock, one of the openers, returned 15-4-28-2. He contained splendidly.
