Harry DeCamps (1-44) also claimed one scalp, with Jon Manton running out last man Patrick Byrne to end the home resistance after Andrew White had led the Louth charge with 62.

Freeman then put on a pivotal 72-run stand for the second wicket with Josh Lawrence (32), while skipper Chris Dring added a useful 31.

Atapattu added 22 to steer Spalding closer to victory after Freeman had departed to leave the visitors on 148-4.

Although Atapattu fell with Spalding still six runs short of their target, Andrews helped them over the line to secure the win in the 43rd over.

The victory moved Spalding up into ninth spot in the 12-team division ahead of this weekend’s home match with seventh-placed Lindum.

Reigning champions Bourne continue to set the pace at the top after recording a third successive victory.

They were eight-wicket winners at Lindum on Saturday, with the Cheer brothers - Colin and Jonny - in fine form for Bourne.

Colin claimed 3-13 from a terrific 10-over spell which featured five maidens as Lindum were bowled out for 119.

Ben Stroud (3-32) also struck three times while Rob Bentley claimed 2-29, with Pete Morgan taking the key wicket of home skipper Rob Cook, who top-scored with 80.

Cheer hit 11 boundaries in his 66 not out, while Morgan was unbeaten on 41 as Bourne secured the win in the 31st over.

Market Deeping are still seeking their first win of the season after a 43-run reversal at Grantham.

Their hosts had been bowled out for 174 after batting first, with Will Naylor and Hayatullah Niazi both taking 3-34 for Deeping.

Opener James Hook made 28 in their reply with Sam Malton adding 22, but three wicket hauls from Glenton Williams and Bilal Hussain saw Deeping dismissed for 131 in their reply.

They host Scunthorpe on Saturday, while Bourne entertain Bracebridge Heath at the Abbey Lawn.
