CONRAD Louth cracked an unbeaten century as Bourne raced to a maiden Lincs ECB Premier League success of the season on Saturday.

The number three notched a hugely impressive 120 for Peter Morgan’s men, who scored a hefty 234-9 batting first against hosts Hartsholme.

Bourne skipper Morgan added 36 of his own, while opener Ben Stroud chipped in with a handy 25.

Hartsholme’s reply never really got going and they were eventually bowled out for just 110 – ten runs less than Louth managed by himself.

Darren Cousins (4-42), Alex Graham (3-24) and Robbie Gow Kleinschmidt (2-24) shone with the ball.

Market Deeping’s clash with Sleaford was the only game in the league to fall foul of the weather.

Results: Boston 133 (J Cheer 59, Milgate 5-10), Woodhall Spa 134-2 (O’Brien 58); Haxey 189 (Harvey 80, Cocks 6-20), Grimsby 108 (Bell 5-27); Skegness 293-6 (Bariwala 169no, Houghton 58), Louth 128; Bracebridge Heath 234-8 (Houston 84, Cook 55), Lindum 154-8 (Bansal 51); Bourne 235-9 (Louth 120no), Hartsholme 110.
