Oakham Cricket Club defeat Loughborough Carillon in Leicestershire League clash
Oakham kept up the pressure in the hunt for promotion to the top flight of the Leicestershire League with a vital victory at the Lime Kilns on Saturday.
They defeated fourth-placed Loughborough Carillon by four wickets to stay just one point adrift of table-topping Newtown Linford who currently occupy the solitary promotion place.
After drawing their match at bottom-of-the-table Market Harborough last weekend, Oakham needed a healthy points haul with a win which would severely dent Carillon's hopes of catching the Rutland side.
