Long Sutton Cricket Club claim their first victory of the Rutland League season

Long Sutton recorded their first victory of the Rutland League Division Three campaign after a 48-run win over Hampton on Sunday.

Dan Oldfield continued his fine form from 24 hours earlier by top-scoring with 73 as Sutton made 181-9 from their 45 overs.

Oldfield - who had scored a half-century in the first team win at Market Deeping on Saturday - faced just 51 balls in his innings before being caught by a fine catch from Saqab Ali.

Phil Barnes made a welcome return to action with 25 before Jake Burton added some late impetus to the innings with 43.

Burton then bagged 4-23 from a fine nine over spell as Hampton were restricted to 133-8 in their reply.

Joe Whitaker took a tidy 2-28 from nine while Charlie Crisp looked dangerous during his spell to finish with 1-32.

Long Sutton 2nds missed out on making it a Rutland League double for the club as they went down by 78 runs in their Division Four East clash at Castor.

The match was reduced to 30 overs and Castor made 138-6 with Sutton skipper Craig Milnes taking 4-26 for his side following two fine catches in the deep from Andy Shaw.

Dan Plant conceded just 15 runs from his six overs while collecting a wicket with fellow opening bowler Shaw's similar stint yieiding only 14 runs.

Sutton struggled for runs in their reply but did bat out their overs before closing on 60-8 with Mackenzie East making 12 and Jack Baker top-scoring with 14.

A terrific three over spell from Joe Youngs helped dismiss Market Deeping cheaply as Burghley Park secured back-to-back victories in Division One.

Youngs took 4-5 while bowling two maidens in his brilliant 18-ball blitz as Market Deeping were defeated by nine wickets against the Stamford side.

They were dismissed for 70 with Connor Gillett top-scoring for Deeping with 14 as Youngs' super spell followed the earlier efforts of Dhruv Gandhi who took 2-15 off seven overs.

There was also a wicket apiece for Josh Carder, Ben Woodward - who bowled four maidens in his seven over spell - Mohammed Azhar and Ahsan Ali Azhar.

Burghley reached their required target inside 14 overs as opener Woodward blasted an unbeaten 36 which included six boundaries.

Adam Muspratt took four wickets as Market Deeping 2nds defeated their Ufford Park counterparts in Division Four East.

Muspratt returned 4-24 from eight overs as Ufford were bowled out for 122. Vincent Newson was their top scorer with 23.

Freddie Moore claimed 2-11 for Deeping while Danny Holden took 2-7 from an eight over spell that included four maidens.

Holden then top-scored with 45 as Deeping secured the win in 31 overs and opener Andy Plowright unbeaten on 39 at the close.

Spalding's trip to Oakham 2nds in Division Three was cancelled.
