Deeping beat the rain and top table

Have your say

Only two games were completed in the Lincs ECB Premier League as rain hit the area.

Market Deeping benefited from the abandonments elsewhere, moving top of the table after beating Skegness.

Outgang Lane suffered least from the wet weather, Paul Butler hitting an unbeaten 58 as Skegness reached 176-9.

Chris Jones then made 67 as, despite having to leave the field in heavy rain with only four runs needed for victory.

Market Deeping eventually claimed a five wicket victory, which moves them three points ahead of Grimsby and Louth.

Spalding’s match at Louth was abandoned with the home side 78-1 and Bourne’s game at Hartsholme was called off before a ball was even bowled.
