TWO records were broken – most wickets and most catches in a season – in an eventful weekend in the Readers Lincolnshire ECB Premier League.
Market Deeping skipper David Gillett took three catches in his side’s match at Lindum to break his own record of 17 for the season while Bourne’s Fahad Masood took seven wickets at Boston to smash the record of 67 set by Kristian Adams in 2003.
And at Augusta Street, more than 500 runs were scored in one of the best games of the season – and at the close, Grimsby and Woodhall Spa were locked together in a hard fought tie.
This pushed Woodhall up another place in the table above Hartsholme who went down heavily to leaders Bracebridge Heath, being bowled out for 89 after the home side had made 286 for seven.
Bracebridge play Bourne this coming Saturday in what could be the titole decider.
Bourne, who could still pip bracebridge to the title, blew third-placed Boston away at the Mayflower Ground.
Masood took seven for 43 as Bourne bowled their hosts out for 92, a total the visitors overtook for the loss of four wickets.
At St Giles Avenue, Lindum had victory in their sights despite being bowled out for a modest 173.
With nine wickets down, Market Deeping still needed 38 for victory but bowler Ali Sharpe showed his batting skills to take his side to a one wicket victory, ending 41 not out.
