Lincolnshire Premier Cricket League round-up





Rob Bentley blasted a century as Bourne made a rapid return to winning ways in the Lincolnshire Premier League with an eight-wicket victory over Long Sutton on Saturday.

Bentley plundered 13 fours and five sixes in his 116 to spearhead Bourne's successful run chase as they bounced back from last week's first defeat of the season against Lindum.

Paul Edgeller had earlier hit his maiden Premier League century for Sutton who posted 239-8 from their 50 overs after being put into bat.
