Six centuries were scored in the South Lincolnshire & Border League on Saturday as three teams topped the 300-run mark.

And there was almost a seventh ton when Paul Timby finished 97 not out in Woodhall Spa 2nd’s victory over Bourne 2nd.

Ryan Croom and Dave Newman hit 130 not out and 122 respectively for Boston who are now well clear at the top of the Premier Division table following their win over Spalding 2nd.

Market Deeping 2nd, for whom John McDougall hit 111, have a substantial lead in Division Two after beating Cavaliers.

Billingborough’s two teams contributed the other three hundreds – Aaron Pullum making 129 for the 1st XI with Mike Stanley and Mitch Griffiths hitting an unbeaten 158 and 120 respectively for the seconds.

Billingborough 1st also made the day’s top team total with 354-4 as Moulton Harrox were dismissed on 219.

Long Sutton’s Rob Simpson recorded the top division’s best bowling figures with 5-33 but could not prevent Belton Park’s victory.

In Division One, two bowlers put in excellent performances – Rav Sangha taking five wickets in Long Sutton 2nd’s win over Lindum 3rd, all of them clean bowled, while Tom Shinkins claimed figures of 5-8 in seven overs for Market Deeping 2nd.

The top three in Division Two are locked in battle for the title – Claypole’s victory over Graves Park moving them into first place with Timberland and Baston close behind, both with games in hand.
