Bourne kept up the pressure on the top two in the Rutland League’s Division One table.

They eased to a seven-wicket win at Eaton Socon thanks to Jordan Temple (51), Carl Wilson (48no) and Conrad Louth (40).

The home side had been restricted to 180-8 – despite the efforts of David Humphrey (75) – with two wickets each for James Keywood, Ben Stroud and Robert Bentley.

Jackson Andrews’ five-wicket haul guided Market Deeping to victory over Newborough in Division Two.

The hosts were struggling at 97-6 until David Gillett (56) and Mehul Adatia (34) put on 82.

But then Newborough were dismissed cheaply in reply as Andrews (5-23) got support from Richard Witt (3-20).

Only three batsmen made it into double figures as Long Sutton were well beaten at Ketton in Division Three.

Bourne 2nd lost at Division Four leaders East Carlton despite the efforts of Chris Binns (68) and Adam Binns (54no).

Bottom-of-the-table Market Deeping 2nd were just seven runs sort of a shock win at Division Five front-runners Wakerley & Barrowden.

Joe Pearson took 4-42 while Richard Williams (29) and Josh Green (26) led the reply.

Moulton Harrox 2nd collapsed to a heavy defeat in Division Six as Nassington 2nd maintained their 100 per cent record.

Openers Henry Lavery (32) and Karl Hibbert (22) got the response off to a good start but none of their team-mates made double figures.

n Spinner Angus Youles has been named in the provisional ECB Premier League representative XI for the visit of the Norwegian under-19 team.

Youles, who is in his first year of Premier League cricket with Billingborough, will be hoping to take part in the match at Sleaford next Thursday, starting at 10.30am.
