Nick Green’s unbeaten ton guided Market Deeping to a nine-wicket home win over Bourne on Saturday.

The 17-year-old smashed 17 boundaries on his way to 107 not out off 110 balls.

Green shared an unbroken second-wicket stand of 194 with skipper Dave Sargeant who was 89 not out from 86 deliveries, hitting 14 fours.

Bourne set 232-9 with Rob Bentley scoring a half-century.

Deeping’s first wicket fell on 39, but that was to be Bourne’s only success.

Meanwhile, a hat-trick from Will Wright halted bottom side Spalding’s pursuit of Lindum’s modest 145-8.
