Bourne (168) beat Market Deeping (111) by 57 runs: BOURNE took the bragging rights in Saturday’s derby duel – and left rivals Deeping deep in trouble towards the foot of the Lincs ECB Premier League table.

Hosts Deeping would have been pretty happy with their efforts in the field at Outgang Road. They bowled out their visitors for just 168, with Aussie Tom Atallah (4-69) and golden oldie Nick Andrews (4-41) doing much of the damage.

Legendary Bourne all-rounder David Christmas top scored with 40, before the bowlers set to work.

Springbok Robbie Gow (3-22), Darren Cousins (2-32) and Tom Dixon (2-22) all shone as the hosts were bamboozled, eventually slumping to 111 all out.

Only the ever-impressive Dave Gillet (51 not out) made any kind of score.

The result leaves bottom duo Boston and Hartsholme within striking distance of Deeping, who are now in a dogfight.
