Seas End Hall eased to victory in Division Five of the Rutland League.

Tom Wilson (48), Joe Broomfield (41) and Steve Lloyd (30) laid the foundations before Lewis Martin’s unbeaten 43 took them to 215-7 off 45 overs.

Ollie Lane, Austin Baker and Ian Moss claimed two wickets each for Easton-On-The-Hill.

The visitors were bowled out for 103 in 30 overs after opener Barry Hancock hit 60.

Paul Foreman (4-23) got support from Broomfield (3-30).

Market Deeping 2nd had just one over in reply to Eaton Socon 2nd’s 169-7 before the match was abandoned.

It was a similar story in the Division One game at Peterborough who reached 4-0 off two overs after Bourne made 206-8.

Tom Dixon (40) and Robert Bentley (35) led the way with Mohammed Danyaal taking 3-40.

Market Deeping’s trip to Castor & Ailsworth in Division Two was also abandoned.

The home side made 187-5 thanks to a fourth-wicket stand of 108 between Reece Smith (48) and Nathan Monaghan (41no).

Tom Shinkins took 2-28 but the reply only lasted 50 balls until the rain came.

The weather also denied Bourne 2nd who restricted Peterborough 2nd to 160-7 in Division Four.

But there was no stopping Long Sutton 2nd in Division Seven with a five-wicket win over S&L Corby 2nd.

Nobody reached double figures for the Northamptonshire side after openers Stephen Hallam (45) and Lewis Still (29) as James Baker claimed 5-23.

Long Sutton raced past their target courtesy of Frank Hunt who smashed five fours and two sixes in an unbeaten 38.
