July 26th highlights

Two centuries, an eight wicket haul and five catches for Bracebridge Heath captain Paul Cook were the highlights of a weekend that saw Spalding pull off the biggest upset of the day with a 100 run victory over leaders Bourne.

Tim McIntosh took eight wickets for Sleaford while in the same game Sam Evison hit 100 of Woodhall Spa’s 254 for nine, a total Sleaford couldn't match, falling 29 runs short.

The second century came from Jamie Epton whose unbeaten 110 saw Skegness to a last over victory at Billingborough in the highest scoring game of the day where both sides topped 250 runs. Billingborough notched up 257 for nine but Epton’s ton and 52 from Peter Houghton saw Skegness to a six wicket win.

A captain’s innings from Steven Crossley brought Grimsby valuable points with a draw at Lindum who batted their way to 247 for six, Will Wright continuing his good form with 70.  Crossley hit an unbeaten 46 as the visitors reached 167 for seven, Jake Benson claiming five wickets.

Bracebridge Heath made the day’s highest team score at home to Louth, with 279 for eight. Matt Carter then bowled an economical 17 overs to take four for 34 as, helped by some good catching from Cook, Louth were all out for 114.

Market Deeping moved back into third place, on level pegging with Woodhall but with more victories.  A very young Market Rasen side, with six players under 17, were the visitors to Outgang Road where Deeping made 230 before the final wicket fell.  Rasen then reached 86 for four but collapsed to 88 all out, Lee Peacock taking five wickets
