Tom Baxter also made a half-century for the hosts with Jake Burton, Charlie Crisp and Adam Whitaker taking a wicket apiece for Long Sutton.

A 64-run second-wicket stand between Calvin Bird (37) and Dan Oldfield (43) then laid the foundations for the run chase.

Paul Edgeller then took over to top score with 69 before Ed Barnes steered Sutton home in the 41st over with an unbeaten 28.

Bourne 2nds remain in the top five of the division after a seven-wicket home win over Moulton Harrox at the Abbey Lawn.

Harrox had batted first and made 206-5 with opener Chris Beale leading their charge with 72 while Henry Lavery was unbeaten on 52 at the close.

Jack Berry and Tom Patchett both collected a couple of wickets each for Bourne who reached their required target with four overs to spare.

Patchett was in belligerent form for the hosts as he plundered eight sixes and four fours in his 94 while opener James Tickler made 39 before Kurt Storey guided them home with 27 not out.

Six wickets from Aaron Pullum helped Billingborough secure their second win of the season with a 68-run victory against Heckington.

Moulton Harrox 2nds continue to set the pace in Division One after an emphatic 10-wicket win against Billingborough 2nds on Saturday.

They dismissed their visitors for just 50 as Lee Eyett led the way with 4-11 from a superb seven-over spell.

Harry Lovell also took a couple of wickets for Harrox who needed less than 10 overs to seal the win with Danny Jackson hitting 39 not out.
