Josh Bentley then blasted 51 before Ben Woodward's unbeaten 48 not out took them past the winning post in the final over.

Billingborough's trip to Belton Park fell foul of the wet weather.

Stamford 2nds were edged out by visiting Claypole in a low-scoring Division One clash at Uffington Road.

Steve Holland top-scored with 29 for Stamford in their reply while Birch blasted 22, but none of the other batsmen made double figures as Matthew Revill's 5-16 proved pivotal in Claypole bowling Town out for 87.

Market Deeping 2nds won an early table-topping tussle with Welby following a 44-run success.

Deeping had made 162-8 from their 40 overs before bowling out their hosts for 118.
