Jack Berry was the star turn for Bourne on Saturday as they beat Skegness at Abbey Lawn.

The all-rounder shone with the ball and finished with figures of 6-45 off 15 overs as the visitors were skittled for just 95 in 30.4 overs.

Berry also opened the Bourne innings and managed just 10.

But his heroics with the ball had paved the way for victory as Carl Wilson (40no) and captain Pete Morgan (39) completed the job.

They steered Bourne to 99-4 off just 12.4 overs for a quick six-wicket win.

Keaton Critchell almost joined the day’s century makers with 94 at Louth whose innings closed on 226-9 at home to Market Deeping.
