Jackson’s 5-29 burst helped bowl Wintney out for 155 after the hosts had been asked to bat first.

But Ville made a hash of their run chase, slipping to 66-6 with only opener Gabriel Broadhurst (39) making double figures in the top six.

Jackson (19) and Robinson started a fightback by adding 30 for the seventh wicket. And Hillman, in at No 9, struck an unbeaten 33 in an unbroken eighth wicket stand of 60 with former Bedhampton Mariners regular Robinson (21 not out).

That ensured Ville triumphed for the fourth time in five matches, hoisting them into second place – just five points adrift of neighbours Hambledon.

Andover started the day top but slipped to third after a 17-run loss to Fair Oak.

Former Test cricketer John Nyumbu had taken 3-16 in the previous week’s win against Waterlooville.

In reply, Ben Smith collected his second SPL five-for of 2022 as Andover were limited to 222-9. Having taken 5-36 against St Cross 2nds, Smith took his seasonal league tally to 16 with 5-56.
