Lincolnshire County Board Premier League

Welcome to the Lincolnshire ECB Premier League  (Follow us on Twitter @LCBPremLge)

August 1st

A maiden Lincolnshire ECB Premier League century for Dan Freeman and six wickets from Joe Peck boosted Grantham’s efforts to escape the relegation zone.

Peck was one of three bowlers to take six, Louth’s Amila Wettasinghe adding to Grimsby’s problems with his haul which Nick Goacher set the scene for Sleaford’s victory over Lindum.

Woodhall Spa opened up a 20 point lead at the top despite a slow start at home to Bourne.  Half centuries for Sam Evison and Ricky Lovelace took Woodhall’s final total to 248 for seven before Bourne were bowled out for 133 of which Tom Dixon hit 62.

Bracebridge Heath got their title challenge back on track after Paul Cook’s 88 helped them to 209 for six at Skegness who were all out for 117.

And Sleaford moved into third with a 10 wicket win over Lindum who were restricted to 155 for nine, Goacher taking six for 40.  Tim McIntosh (89no) and Tom Shorthouse (65no) then saw their side to victory in 31 overs.

At the foot of the table, Spalding are now 30 points adrift with Grimsby Town, Skegness and Market Rasen above them, just 10 points separating these three.

Wettasinghe was instrumental in bowling Grimsby out for 94, a total Louth reached for the loss of three wickets while Market Rasen were all out for 141 in a much tighter game at home to Market Deeping.

Dan Freeman’s 122 came off 128 balls, helping Grantham to the day’s highest individual total of 295 for four, Rohan Nurse hitting an unbeaten 55.
