Stoke Rochford Seniors have a history of impressive unbeaten home runs - 52 matches between 2003 and 2006 and 30 between 2009 and 2010.

Therefore victory against Luffenham Heath - taking the run to 17 matches - made it look promising for another long stretch.

Stoke’s last defeat had been at the hands of Burghley Park in August 2014, and the eagerly-awaited encounter with their bogey side again proved to be their undoing, going down 3-5.

Impressively, Burghley Park have now won on each of their last four visits to Stoke Rochford.
