September 13th highlights
weekend of the season saw Bourne
crowned champions – and Tim McIntosh break two records.
Rasen finished the season on a high note, bowling Grimsby out for 127 and going on to win by
seven wickets to consign fellow league newcomers Billingborough, who lost to
Woodhall Spa, to bottom place.
The top of the table clash between Bourne and Lindum proved to be as tense and hard fought as predicted. Having won the toss and elected to bowl, Lindum needed to take all 10 wickets to be in with a chance of claiming the title.
The first fell with just seven on the board and the second on 48 but a stand of 92 between Conrad Louth, who hit a painstaking 49, and Pete Morgan (45) put paid to Lindum’s hopes, the visitors finishing on 178 for five.
Will Wright and Will Taylor set off in pursuit at T20 pace, Wright hitting 36 off 30 balls before falling to Jack Berry with the score on 72. Taylor made 46 off 36 balls but from here the rate slowed as Lindum moved more steadily towards their target, victory coming in the 30th over by just two wickets.
In addition to their runners-up trophy, Lindum can celebrate two more awards. Jonathan Miller’s 62 wickets make him the season’s top wicket taker while Richard Bishop is the winning wicketkeeper with 35 dismissals.
Former New Zealand international McIntosh hit 140 to take his total runs for the season to 1323, smashing
his own 2013 record by 120.And together
with Andy Hibberd, who hit 107, McIntosh topped the league’s third wicket
partnership, taking it from 251 to 269.
