Local cricket: Champions celebrate with feast of runs
Loughborough Town celebrated their Premier Divison title success with an impressive 124-run victory at Kegworth.
Sunny Patel, the Premier Division batsman of the season, hit 134 and captain Dips Patel 78 as Loughborough raced to 291-6 in their 50 overs before they bowled out the home side for 167.
Even if Lutterworth and Leicester Ivanhoe win their appeals against points deductions, Loughborough cannot be caught.
Syston went clear in third place thanks to an 81-run home victory against Kibworth.
