Luis Reece returned outstanding match figures of 10-68 as Leeds/Bradford MCCU comfortably beat Sussex by 79 runs at Weetwood.

After Kirk Wernars claimed 4-28 to dismiss Leeds/Bradford for 164, Reece produced a remarkable spell of bowling to help his team into a first-innings lead of 106.

The 21-year-old seamer, who at one stage boasted scarcely-believable figures of 5-0, returned 7-21 off 10.3 overs as Sussex were skittled for just 58.

The hosts left Sussex 255 for victory after declaring on 149 for nine in their second outing, Harry Bush top-scoring with 46.

On-loan Middlesex batsman Scott Newman struck 89 as Kent declared on 251 for eight against Oxford MCCU at the Parks

Sussex were well on their way at 143 for three thanks to 76 from Matt Machan, only for Ivan Thomas to trigger a collapse that saw seven wickets fall for 33 runs.

Thomas claimed 6-21 off 16 overs and was supported by the impressive Reece, who chipped in with 3-47.

Rain prevented a positive result at the Parks as Oxford MCCU’s match against Kent ended in a disappointing draw.

Kent, who won the toss, were boosted by Alex Blake’s 97 and 89 from on-loan Middlesex opening batsman Scott Newman as they declared on 251 for eight, with Sam Agarwal taking 4-49.

In reply, Oxford were in trouble at 12 for two, but half-centuries from Ben Williams and Charlie Walker got them back on track.

Oxford were reduced to 192 for seven when rain intervened as Blake took 3-10 in a seven-over burst.
