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

The next league meeting takes place on September 27th, 7.30pm at Lindum CC

August 26thBracebridge Heath extended their lead by four points and now need just 26 from their final three games to win the championship for the third successive season. Challengers Grantham also won but picked up only 16 points after failing to bowl Louth out at Gorse Lane.

Alford slipped into the bottom three after losing to Boston but with a 30 point cushion over Grimsby Town - their opponents next Saturday - the league newcomers look to have safely negotiated their first season of Premier League cricket.

A high scoring game at Market Deeping saw over 570 runs and two six wicket hauls as Bracebridge once again topped the 300 mark, hitting 318 for eight, Matt Carter and Brett Houston with half centuries and James Hook claiming six wickets for the home side.

Deeping were also on good batting form and a spirited chase saw them reach 254 before the final wicket fell, Nick Green and Josh Smith sharing an opening partnership of 116 and Green going on to add 114 to his ever growing runs total while Brett Houston took six wickets for Bracebridge.

It was also runs galore at Woodhall Spa where Andy Hibberd's 93 and Ollie Burford's 58 helped Sleaford to 290 for nine, five of the wickets falling to Joe Irving.  Jack Timby and Prasanna Jayawardene got Woodhall off to a good start with half centuries but the home side were all out for 218.

Louth recovered from 12 for two at Grantham to make 171 for eight, thanks to 43 from Xander Pitchers and an unbeaten 48 from Graham West who shared a valuable 30 in an eighth wicket partnership with Alex Bell.  James Dobson then hit 75 as Grantham reached their total for the loss of four wickets.

Boston moved up to seventh in the table with their fourth victory in a row as they bowled Alford out for 114.  But having reached 32 comfortably without loss, the visitors saw their wickets begin to tumble and at 75 for seven their target was still a long way off.  Tom Baxter dug in and with Scott Elleray took the total to 98 and Tim Bell then joined his captain to see Boston to victory.

It was a similar story at Spalding where the home side were all out for 109 but reduced Bourne to seven for two then 69 for six before Sam Evison and Rob Bentley got together to deny their opponents any more wickets and take their side to victory.

At Lindum, Grimsby Town were bowled out for 115 before the home side went on to a comfortable seven wicket win, James Kimber with an unbeaten 41.
