August 30th highlights

With two matches remaining, the foot of the table provided the day’s surprise results with Market Rasen recording their first victory to move off the bottom while Grimsby put themselves further away from relegation danger with a win over Skegness.

Spalding were Rasen’s victims, succumbing for just 96 as Tom Borysczuk claimed six wickets for 22 before Graeme Bell's 55 helped the home side to a seven wicket victory.

Lee Charlton was the stand-out bowler for Grimsby, taking six wickets, including four in four balls – one at the end of an over and a hat trick to start the next – while skipper Steve Crossley held five catches behind the stumps as Skegness were all out for 115.  In reply, Grimsby lost five wickets reaching their target.(Photos in Community/Photo Gallery)

Billingborough had less success at Market Deeping where Chris Jones hit 87 to help his side to 182 for nine at the close.  Billingborough then came up against Tom Andrews who bowled his full 17 overs, taking five wickets for just 18 runs as the visitors were bowled out for 85.

At the top of the table, Bourne need 20 points from their final two games to lift the championship, despite managing only a losing draw at Bracebridge Heath.  Bracebridge notched up 252, the final wicket falling on the last ball of the innings, with Hymie Bentley contributing 53 and Carl Stubbs 68.

Bourne lost their first three wickets for 45 runs but an outstanding batting display from Conrad Louth – who had taken four catches in the first innings - brought a partnership of 128 with Carl Wilson (69).  Louth eventually went for 106 and the innings ended on 227 for seven.

Lindum held on to second place after bowling Woodhall Spa out for 128 and winning by eight wickets, a result that saw Woodhall slip to fifth place with Sleaford took over in fourth after a low scoring game at Louth where Sleaford were all out for 148 before bowling Louth out for 107.
