Bourne and Market Deeping showed no mercy to relegation-haunted teams in the Lincs Premier Division yesterday (August 6).

Deeping moved back up to second place with an 85-run win over bottom club Nettleham as 16 year-old Stamford School student Nick Green scored 109.

Green’s first ton at this level enabled Deeping to post their highest score of the summer, 285-9 in their 50 overs.

And then it was the turn of regular second team opening batsman Richard Witt to return remarkable figures of 6-29 as the visitors were bowled out for 200.

Bourne all-rounder Jack Berry pretty much demolished next-to-bottom Grimsby on his own.

Berry returned figures of 7-36 from 12 overs as the visiors to the Abbey Lawns were dismissed for just 80 in 24 overs and five balls.

He then smashed an unbeaten 60 from just 35 balls (10 fours, one six) as Bourne raced to victory in nine overs and four balls.

Berry took seven wickets and scored a half century against Boston three weeks ago (July 16).
