Lincolnshire Premier Cricket League round-up





Bourne racked up the runs to maintain their winning start to the Lincolnshire Premier League campaign on Saturday.

They beat derby rivals Spalding by 212 runs at the Abbey Lawn to record a fourth successive league victory.

Opener Jordan Temple led the way for Bourne with a terrific century as they piled up 380-4 from their 50 overs.

Temple thumped 14 fours and a six in his 127 while Jonny Cheer cracked eight boundaries in his 57 before Sam Evison took centre stage.

Evison had scored 142 off just 54 balls in Bourne's victory over Long Sutton in the Winkworth Cup last Monday.

And he continued in a similar vein by smashing six fours and nine sixes in his 85 which came off just 28 deliveries.

Dan Freeman was then 48 not out at the close before Bourne captain Jack Berry led the home side's bowling attack.

He took 5-24 while Corey Young claimed 2-18 from eight economical overs as Spalding were bowled out for 168.

Nilantha Atapattu top-scored with 31 while Will Gardner made 29 as Spalding were left still seeking their first league win of the season.

Bourne's win keeps them hot on the tails of reigning champions Lindum in the early league standings.

The unbeaten Lincoln side were 88-run winners at Market Deeping on Saturday as their hosts were denied a hat-trick of league victories.

Hayatullah Niazi and Matt Mills both picked up a couple of wickets each as Lindum were bowled out for 211.

However, Deeping were dismissed for 123 in reply despite opener Connor Gillett making 38 and skipper Jame Hook hitting 26.

Long Sutton are still looking for their first victory since promotion after a 124-run reversal at Bracebridge Heath.

Jake Burton took a couple of wickets as Bracebridge made 274-4 after batting first before Sutton were bowled out for 150 in reply with Dan Oldfield making 31.

Long Sutton have a home match with Market Deeping on Saturday while Spalding host Grantham and Bourne travel to Lindum for an early season table-topping showdown.
