FAHAD Masood and Peter Morgan were on inspired form as Bourne leapt back up the Lincs ECB Premier League standings.

Skipper Morgan cracked 100 and Masood snared figures of 7-31 as the defending champions eased past Lincoln Lindum to surge into the top six.

Batting first on Saturday, Morgan’s ton – which included ten fours and a six – was the mainstay of Bourne’s 236-8.

Lindum’s response stuttered from the off, with Masood in a destructive mood.

Matt Rutherford (41) offered some resistance, but they were all out for 114.

Market Deeping failed to reach such heights in their home clash with Grimsby, though.

George Linde made an unbeaten 83 for Grimsby who finished on 249-9 at Outgang Road.

Dave Gillett (64) attempted to steer his side to glory, but they collapsed to 166 all out in 43.1 overs, with man-of-the-match Linde taking 4-39 – including the last wicket of the day.
