Moulton Harrox suffered a fourth straight South Lincs and Border League premier division defeat when they went down to high-flying Billingborough.

Harrox were put into bat and at one stage were sitting pretty at 70-1... but then wickets began to tumble.

Roy Tilley grabbed the first four victims in a five wicket haul and Rutvick Botadra claimed a couple as the home side finished on 139-8 off 45 overs.

In reply, Boro’s openers Hollingworth and Newman soon put their side on the road to victory, the former reaching his half-century with a massive six before finishing unbeaten on 73.

nBillingborough 2nd continued their poor start with another defeat, losing to Market Deeping 2nd by eight wickets when chasing 105 for victory. Only Richard Wells starred with the bat, notching a fine 42.

That loss now sees Billingborough 2nd bottom of division one.
