May 23rd

Woodhall Spa moved to the top after Grimsby Town pulled off another giantkilling act while Spalding recorded their first victory of the season, defeating Sleaford in another surprise result.

Grimsby saw off leaders Bracebridge Heath at Augusta Street, Charlton taking six wickets as the visitors were bowled out for 67, a total the home side overtook for the loss of four wickets.

Woodhall are now the only unbeaten side in the league, while opponents Louth are the only team without a victory after going down by seven wickets at Jubilee Park. Woodhall were set a target of 175, Malinga Bandara claiming 5-65 and won by seven wickets, Jack Luffman with an unbeaten 85.

At London Road, captain Rob Ambrose top scoring with 42 as the visitors batted steadily right down the order to bring up a total of 236-6, three of the wickets falling to Tom Shorthouse.

Sleaford lost an early wicket but Jonny Cheer and Shorthouse steadied the ship.  However, when Shorthouse became Mark Joyce’s first victim, Cheer lost partners with increasing regularity and at the close was left high and dry on 115 as Sleaford’s innings ended on 193, Joyce and Warren Nel with four wickets each.

The day’s top individual score came from Conrad Louth whose unbeaten 151 helped Bourne to the highest team total of 277-8.  Louth faced just 144 balls and hit 17 fours and four sixes, putting on 121 for the third wicket with Pete Morgan (60).  Martin Shillito then stepped up to open the bowling, taking five for 39 as Rasen were bowled out for 86. 

This puts Bourne equal second in the table with Bracebridge Heath while Rasen are equal fourth with Market Deeping and Lindum, whose third victory of the season came at Skegness who restricted their guests to a relatively modest 207. Skegness then reached 147-6 before collapsing to 155 all out, Joe Peatman with 6-45.

Market Deeping took on Grantham at Gorse Lane where Emile Kriek (61) and Tom Andrews (50) shared a partnership of 101 for the sixth wicket.  But from 179-5, Deeping fell victim to Karanjit Bansal who dismissed both top scorers and went on to take 5-61 as the visitors were all out for 204.  Andrews and Pat Brown then reduced Grantham to 21 for four and despite the efforts of Rohan Nurse with 40, the home side were all out for 119.

The next league meeting is on July 8th at Lindum CC at 7.30pm.
