Bourne Second XV enjoyed a 96 run victory over Belton Park on Saturday to keep pace with the leaders in the South Lincolnshire & Border League Premier Division.

Hosts Bourne set a target of 195-7 largely thanks to Tom Bentley who top scored with 71.

The bowlers then went to work with James Keywood taking six wickets for 58 runs as his side bowled out the opposition for 101 at the Abbey Lawn to secure their position in fourth.

Just one point separates the top two in the Premier Division after Grantham and Lindum Ramblers fought out a tight game at Gorse Lane, the home side claiming victory with six balls remaining.

Lindum stay in first place but as well as Grantham breathing down their neck, they have Boston in third just nine points adrift.

The top four all won with Boston defeating Sleaford Seconds despite Simon Godby scoring the day’s only century.

Stamford Town’s resurgence in the Border League came to a halt with a eight wicket loss to Moulton Harrox.

Opener Alex Birch scored 26 for Stamford but the rest of the order collapsed behind him, and Stamford were all out for 84 in the 37th over.

Jack Barnett hit 46 not out to race his side to the required total in the 20th over of their reply. They sit in ninth in the 12 team league.

Billingborough Seconds are the new leaders in Division One following their victory over Woodlands, with Boston 2nd five points behind and Market Deeping in third, seven behind Boston.

Deeping went down to a surprise defeat by bottom side Friskney while Boston scored a five wicket win over Baston.

Billingborough reached the top of the division with after 87 runs from Dave Newman helped the village side to 257-4. Woodlands could only respond with 176-9, losing by 81 runs.
