George Woods added 29 and Matt Mills made 25 while Dan Oldfield and Charlie Crisp both collected a couple of wickets for Long Sutton.

The hosts were bowled out for 232 in reply despite the sterling efforts from Davico Kruger and Oldfield.

Kruger cracked 13 fours and two sixes before being caught and bowled by Kester Sainsbury when he was two runs short of his century.

Oldfield made a run-a-ball 67 but none of the other Sutton batters made double figures as the home side were left still searching for their first victory of the season.

Marcus Telford was the pick of the Deeping attack with 4-57 while Smith and Niazi bagged a brace of wickets each.

Spalding are also yet to record a victory this term after a 121-run home loss to an unbeaten Grantham side.

The visitors made 293-6 after electing to bat first with Nafis Shaikh striking an unbeaten 106 while Qundeel Haider made 86.

Josh Lawrence and Brandon Andrews both struck twice for Spalding who were then dismissed for 172 in reply.

Kayan Grace top-scored with 40 while Ethan Lawrence made 39 against a Grantham attack where Azimullah Ahmadzai took 4-32.

Bourne were beaten for the first time this season after a five-wicket away loss at reigning champions Lindum.

They had been restricted to 200-9 from their 50 overs after being put into bat with Jonny Cheer making 67 and Carl Wilson finishing unbeaten on 43.

Tom Lane took 4-26 for Lindum who passed the target with seven overs to spare despite Colin Cheer and Dan Freeman taking two wickets each for Bourne.

They will be looking to bounce back on Saturday when they host Long Sutton at the Abbey Lawn while Deeping entertain Woodhall and Spalding visit Sleaford.
