SAHAM Toney had an excellent 26-run win and claimed the maximum 25 points when Bradfield visited Pages Lane.
Batting first, Saham posted 228-5 off their 46 overs in a solid batting display.
Openers A Wood (38) and R Palmer (23) put on 69 for the first wicket before both fell within 10 runs of each other.
D Fahy came in and kept the momentum going, scoring a well-made 64 and received good support from S Mower (23) and W Dyer who made an excellent 33 not out.
D Yarham was the most successful visitors' bowler claiming 2-34 off his 12 overs.
In response Saham got the early breakthrough they wanted when W Dyer bowled Saham old boy E Botwright. An 84-run partnership put Bradfield in the driving seat before Saham claimed four wickets for only 15 runs with P Sims again proving a wicket taker with three more victims.
