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

Good weather for the first day of the season brought high scores, with two centuries and 15 half centuries, but the batsmen didn't take all the glory as three bowlers claimed five wicket hauls and Bourne's Ben Stroud took 2017's first hat trick.

Bourne were involved in the highest scoring game of the day, more than 580 runs coming at Bracebridge Heath who finished 305-8, thanks to 111 from new signing Matt Lineker and 70 from Matt Carter. 

Bourne fought hard for the runs, Jack Berry hitting 63 off 47 balls and Sam Evison 55.  Carl Wilson made 75 but by the time the wicketkeeper was out for 75, Bourne were nine wickets down with 277 on the board no further score was added the home sideclaimed victory.

Bracebridge join three other teams on 20 points - Woodhall Spa, Grantham and Louth for whom Namibian Xander Pitchers put in a man of the match performance with 70 runs and five wickets at home to Alford.

Seb Darke made 106 off 103 balls in Louth's 274-7 with Alford's reply ending on 189.

Woodhall's new signing Pradeep Chanditha partnered Jack Timby in an opening stand of 114 at Market Deeping, Chanditha hitting 64, Timby 53 and Joe Irving 72 as the visitors notched up 275 before being all out in the final over. Five of the wickets fell to Vamshi Parvathaneni but Ross Dixon was on even more economical bowling form, taking five for 16 off nine overs as Deeping were bowled out for 118.

Dan Freeman was the star performer for Grantham, hitting 80 runs as steady batting from the top order helped the home side to 267-8.  Lindum lost early wickets and never recovered despite the efforts of opener Will Wright who hit 81 of his side's total of 140, Freeman taking five wickets.

Sleaford picked up 18 points in a tight game at Boston whose bowling restricted their visitors to 196 for seven, Kiwi Robert Nicol hitting 87 and Jack Wilson 52. Tom Baxter's captain's innings of 56 saw his side to 155 before the final wicket fell.

Grimsby journeyed to Spalding with six under-19 players in their side and a good team effort saw them come away with the points.  Spalding made 178 for nine a total the visitors overtook for the loss of six wickets.
