Market Deeping 2nd moved back into contention at the top of the South Lincolnshire & Border League Division One with a six-wicket win over Cavaliers.

Deeping now lie third, seven points behind Grantham 2nd who beat Friskney.

Richard Witt’s unbeaten half-century guided Deeping past their target.

Leaders Spalding 2nd recorded the day’s highest total with 235 – thanks mainly to Ansar Hussain (76) and Simon Juckes (61) – before bowling Boston 2nd out for 145.

Heckington were once again involved in a nailbiter, this time at Long Sutton 2nd where rain reduced the game to 30 overs a side.

Opener Chris Morley made an unbeaten 49 in Heckington’s 119-6 – and at the close Long Sutton were just two short of their target on 117-7 with Aaron John (35no) and Jamie Taylor (34) leading the way.

Baston were well beaten by Woodlands as Mark Richardson (41) had no support.

In Division Two, Lindum 3rd and Freiston have opened up a gap over third-placed Claypole who beat Pinchbeck.

James Langford’s all-round efforts of 4-4-2 and 41 not out were not enough for Pinchbeck.

Seven points now separate top and second in the Premier Division with Lindum Ramblers seven behind Boston who are their opponents next week when Grantham play fourth-placed Bourne 2nd who lost to Sleaford 2nd by six wickets.
