Long Sutton Cricket Club need three points to win the South Lincs and Border League title





Long Sutton's bid for South Lincs and Border League Championship glory will go down to the final game of the season.

They host Freiston at Paradise Field on Saturday needing three points to be crowned champions after defeat last weekend.

Sutton suffered a five-wicket loss at Grantham 2nds on Saturday, picking up only four points of the seven required to take the title.

They were bowled out for 136 after electing to bat first with Paul Edgeller (38) and Dan Oldfield (34) their top scorers.

Skipper Jake Burton and Charlie Crisp took 2-29 and 2-34 respectively in the Grantham reply but the hosts triumphed in the 34th over.

Moulton Harrox are the only side who can catch Long Sutton and they kept their title dream alive with a convincing away win at Orton Park.

They were 104-run winners with Jamie Kitchen (53) and Matt Rose (37) helping them make 208-8 after batting first.

Kitchen then claimed a superb 6-27 from nine overs while Curtis Todd took a tidy 2-18 from a similar stint as Orton were bowled out for 104.

Bourne 2nds took the derby day spoils after a six-wicket win over Market Deeping at the Abbey Lawn.

Shane George was in fine form with the ball as Billingborough breezed to a 10-wicket win over Baston in Division One.

George took 5-17 from eight overs while Harry Lamb claimed 2-8 from a seven-over spell as Baston were bowled out for 39.

Billingborough needed just 14 balls to pass their target as Dylan Garfoot smashed four fours and two sixes in his 29 not out while Jacob Light was unbeaten on 14 at the close.

Spalding 2nds were dismissed for 70 in their 221-run reversal at Ancaster who made 291-5 from their 45 overs after batting first.

Long Sutton 2nds have clinched promotion from Division Two but the fate of the league title will also go down to the final game of the season.

They were handed the 20 points from Saturday's scheduled clash with Spalding 3rds who conceded the contest.

However, second-placed Royal Boston defeated Belton Park and can leapfrog Sutton into top spot if they beat Ketton Sports in their last match of the season on Saturday.

Dave Newman was in fine form as Billingborough 2nds were six-wicket winners over Boston 3rds.

Newman took 2-11 as Boston were restricted to 168-5 before blasting 26 boundaries in a quick-fire 117 as the win was secured after 26 overs.
