Bourne made it four wins out of four by triumphing in a tense tussle with Bracebridge Heath at the Abbey Lawn on Saturday.

The reigning champions secured their four-wicket win with just eight balls of the Lincolnshire Premier League contest remaining.

Kit Spence (66) and Alex Willerton (56) were the mainstays of their innings as Brandon Diplock led the home attack.

The Zimbabwean took 4-23 from 10 overs while Tom Patchett and Sam Evison both collected two wickets each for the hosts.

Evison (51) and Jordan Temple (63) got the Bourne reply off to a solid start with a 75-run opening partnership.

He had a crucial 76-run stand with Carl Wilson (14) before adding 52 runs for the sixth wicket with Rob Dunn.
