Long Sutton bowler Barry Stanway continued his excellent form when destroying Belton Park in the South Lincs and Border League Premier Division.

Having taken five wickets for just nine runs in last week’s 10-wicket hammering of Stamford Town, Stanway again bowled superbly as Sutton won on Saturday.

He took eight wickets for 32 runs in his 12 overs as Sutton ran out comfortable winners by five wickets.

The victory saw Sutton go fifth, just one point behind Bourne 2nd and three points off a top three position.

Having won the toss, Sutton elected to bowl and it proved a wise decision as they dismissed Belton Park for just 88.

James Wright took a couple of wickets while Jake Burton finished Belton off, taking the final wicket with just his fourth ball.

Wicket-keeper Adam Wright top-scored with 35, including five fours, as Sutton reached their target for the loss of six wickets.

Bourne 2nd skipper Tom Bentley also bowled superbly to take seven wickets as his side beat Skegness 2nd by five wickets.

The hosts reached 169-8 but opener Robert Dunn tored into the opposition bowlers with a half-century and Jordan Temple (47) and David Greenfield (40 not out) gave good support as Bourne reached their target for the loss of five wickets.

Moulton Harrox recorded their first victory of the campaign when defeating Welby by four wickets.

They bowled Welby out for 89 and got their first win of the campaign for the loss of six wickets.

In Division One, Market Deeping 2nd beat local rivals Spalding 2nd by two wickets thanks to a knock of 48 from Sam Malton.

Jim Clarke ran out of partners in his bid to reach a half-century for Spalding.

He was unbeaten on 47 when the last wicket fell with the score on 166.

Nick Andrews took four wickets and also helped his side get off to a solid start with the bat while skipper Richard Witt put on a solid 35 as Bourne edged to victory.

Billingborough 2nd won at Boston 2nd by four wickets thanks to M. Stanley’s unbeaten century.

His knock of 106 not out was just four runs short of his best of 110 not out from three years ago as they reached their target for the loss of six wickets.

Baston beat Long Sutton by 12 runs. Mark Richardson (30) and Andy Townsin (31) top-scored as the victors reached 96 all out but it proved enough with John Lamin taking six Sutton wickets.

Danny Jackson hit a stunning 158 not out as Pinchbeck defeated Spalding 3rd by 126 runs in Division Two.

He shared an unbeaten second-wicket stand of 176 with Sam Smith (72no) that took the home side to 258 -1, a total out of reach of Spalding 3rd who were bowled out for 132.

Keith De-Keyzer put on 62 in Spalding’s reply.
