THE Luffs of Lympsham, Jack and Sophie, were in the runs again when they shared an unbroken partnership of 189 to see their side to victory over Fitzhead.

Jack Luff ended unbeaten on 154, his season’s best, which came off 122 balls with 18 fours and eight sixes, while his sister Sophie played the anchor role and ended not out 42.
