Former Bourne wicket-keeper Wilson takes six catches

Market Deeping suffered a second successive Lincolnshire Premier League defeat after an eight-wicket loss at Grantham on Saturday.

Jamie Morgan's men were bowled out for 87 by their in-form hosts with former Bourne wicket-keeper Carl Wilson taking six catches behind the stumps for Grantham.

Deeping had won the toss at Gorse Lane and elected to bat first, but they were soon under the cosh as Daniel Freeman ripped through the top order of visiting batsmen.

Kieran Judd lasted just five balls before becoming the first of Freeman's five wickets with Wilson safely gathering the catch.

The same combination then struck again to dismiss Dave Sargeant and leave Deeping reeling on 5-2.

Connor Gillett was next to fall for six after James Dobson's delivery was again claimed by wicket-keeper Wilson.

James Hook followed shortly after to leave Deeping on 10-4 before Sam Malton lasted eight balls until he was trapped leg before by Freeman.

Skipper Morgan and Ali Sharp then set about putting up some stern resistance as they came together at the crease with Deeping on 16-5.

They put on 30 runs for the sixth wicket until Morgan was caught by Joe Peck for Freeman's fifth wicket for 12.

Sachithra Perera and Kieran Lutton followed soon after as Sam Boyns had an immediate impact after being brought into the Grantham attack.

Boyns then bagged the wicket of top scorer Sharp for 38, off just 41 balls, to leave Deeping on 73-9.

Mehul Adatia (8no) and Vamshi Parvathaneni (9) produced a valiant last wicket stand before Boyns claimed the final wicket to finish with 4-15 off 5.5 overs after Freeman had taken 5-25 from eight overs.

Grantham made light work of chasing down their target with Ross Carnelley and Jaden Fell putting on 64 for the first wicket.

Fell was run out by Morgan for 18 while Carnelley was dismissed one short of half-century after being bowled by Adatia.

But Freeman and Neil Stevenson knocked off the required runs to leave Deeping with just a two-point return which leaves them bottom of the fledgling standings after two games.

They make the trip to face Boston on Saturday who are also without a win from their opening two matches.

Bourne - who were without a game at the weekend - are back in action at the Abbey Lawn on Saturday when they host Scunthorpe.
