Only two games were played to a finish – and both affected the top of their tables.

In the Premier Division, Sleaford 2nd beat Skegness to secure the championship for the first time since 1993.

Welby Cavaliers made sure of second place in Division One behind champions Long Sutton with a 15-run victory against Belton Park in a reduced-over match.

Bourne 2nd reached 207-6 against Spalding 2nd with loan player James Tickler hitting an unbeaten 79 before play was abandoned.

Market Deeping were 117-6 when rain stopped play against Stamford Town.

In Division Two, the weather put paid to Pinchbeck’s chances of finishing runners-up as the game at Belton Park had to be called off due to a waterlogged pitch, leaving them two points behind Heckington.

Next weekend is the last of the season and includes the league cup final at Boston on Sunday between Long Sutton and Skegness 2nd, starting at 1pm. Spectators are welcome.
