SOUTH LINCS AND BORDER LEAGUE: Defeat for Spalding 2nds and 3rds, wins for Pinchbeck and Long Sutton 2nds
The postponement of Spalding 1sts' trip to Long Sutton on Saturday gave an opportunity for the second string to take centre stage at home to Claypole.
But instead, skipper Matt Gill led his Spalding 2nds side to a heavy 101-run defeat at Memorial Field, largely down to a match-winning 144-run stand for the fourth wicket between visiting pair Joe Attewell and Will Harris.
After winning the toss, Claypole skipper John North appeared to have made a mistake in opting to bat first as they were reduced to 12-3 due to a devastating bowling spell by Spalding's Paul Forman.
