CRICKET: Bourne's demolition job
Bourne demolished bottom side Alford in the Lincolnshire Premier League.
Firstly, they made the day’s highest team total of 272-8 and then followed this up by bowling the home team out for just 27.
There was little indication of the fireworks to come, when, put in to bat, Bourne lost openers Jack Berry and Jordan Temple for 5 and 6 respectively.
But they were soon back, as Sam Evison made 48, including seven fours, Courtney Kruger added 39 and captain Peter Morgan made an unbeaten 72.
Alford’s reply lasted just 13 overs, with none of their batsmen reaching double figures.
Bourne bowler Matthew Kidd claimed a remarkable seven wickets for just four runs.
Market Deeping bowlers Sachithra Perera and Mehul Adatia each claimed three wickets as they engineered a mid-order collapse by Scunthorpe Town.
After a steady start, Scunthorpe tumbled to a total of 159 - 9 of which opener Scott Nicolson hit 69.
Deeping’s innings got off to a solid start thanks to Josh Smith (29) and Kieran Judd (34) and they were seen home by Sam Malton and David Sargeant with only four wickets down.
