Premier League (Follow us on Twitter @LCBPremLge)
Maximum points for Bracebridge Heath and Woodhall Spa retained the status quo at the top of the table but lower down the
order, a number of teams are hovering around the relegation zone.
Bracebridge Heath’s batsmen seemed determined to do as little
running as possible on the first really sunny day of the season as, needing 184
for victory over Bourne, they hit 154 of these runs in boundaries!
Sleaford and Grantham fought out the highest scoring game,
the home side amassing 333-6 thanks to an unbeaten 161 from Tim McIntosh and 68 off 41 balls from Tom
Shorthouse, but the London Road pitch also suited Grantham, Karanjit
Bansal making 83 and Rohan Nurse 83 not out as the visitors’ innings closed on
This gave Grantham a very valuable 10 points which put them in
equal 10th place with Grimsby
who faced Woodhall Spa team at Augusta Street. Jack Luffman hit 70 and
Malinga Bandara 79 as Woodhall posted 277-8, a
target that proved too high for Grimsby
who, despite a huge effort from Steve Crossley with 72, were all out for 158.
Matt Bradley took five wickets at Bracebridge Heath to help
bowl Bourne out for 183, a total the home side overtook
in 31 overs, Vikram Atri top scoring with 65.
Market Deeping restricted Lindum to 159-9 at St
Giles Avenue but Ryan Sneddon's 5-58 helped bowl Deeping out for 114.
Skegness reached 227-9 at home to Market Rasen. Jamie Epton hit 57 and Brendan Young 73 while
Matt Rutherford took five wickets to take his total for the season to
35. Young then took the first three wickets for 22 runs and Rasen never recovered, being bowled out for 105 and
dropping to ninth in the table.
Spalding stay bottom despite the day’s best bowling figures
from Dan Milgate who took seven Louth wickets for 57 runs. Louth were all out for 225 but the visitors
were unable to match this and were bowled out for 161.
Tony Fox's funeral will be held at St. Wilfrid's Church, Metheringham, on Monday 6 July at 2pm. Donations in Tony's memory may be made to the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation, c/o Lincolnshire Co-operative Funeral Services, Tritton Road, Lincoln, LN6 7QY.
