Courtney Kruger cracked a sensational double century as Bourne 2nds stormed to an emphatic victory in the South Lincs and Border League on Saturday.

Kruger smashed an unbeaten 202 as Bourne racked up the runs against the Premier Division strugglers.

They thumped 394 runs off the 45 overs with opener Josh Bentley blasting 72 and Ben Keast cracking an unbeaten 50.

Bourne then breezed through the home batting to dismiss Welby for 127 as Xanti Xipu led the visitors' charge.

Xipu took 4-33 from 12 overs while Richard Hewitt helped himself to 3-9 from five overs for an emphatic 267-run victory.

Billingborough edged to a narrow eight-run away victory at Long Sutton after successfully defending their 178.

Stamford Town 2nds were unable to stall Sleaford 2nds' charge for Premier Division honours after a six-wicket defeat at Uffington Road.

Town were dismissed for 139 with Chris Birch topping the Stamford batting with 42 while number 10 Steve Holland hit an unbeaten 28. Giles Goddard and Paul Roberts both took four wickets for the visitors.

Simon Godby then led the Sleaford run chase with an unbeaten 65 as they claimed victory inside 39 overs despite Birch, Phil Holland and Gary Peck all picking up wickets for Town.

Market Deeping's hopes of a top two finish in Division One were dented after a heavy 107-run defeat at home to Graves Park.

Park had been dismissed for 210, but the Deeping batsmen came up short in their reply as the hosts were bowled out for 103.

Uffington claimed a superb success in Division Two as their second victory of the season came against table-topping Pinchbeck.

They made 200-4 from their 45 overs thanks to the efforts of Jon Briggs (32), D Moss (23), Damien Herrick (37) and unbeaten innings' by Neil Jones (64no) and Ivan Wilson (27no).

Wilson was then in superb form with the ball as he plundered the Pinchbeck batting line-up with 6-13 from 12 overs.

Harry Carter, Jones and Jak Garner also picked up a wicket apiece as Pinchbeck were bowled out for 115. Mark Ramsden was unbeaten on 35 for the hosts.

Billingborough 2nds suffered a nine-wicket defeat against Freiston after being bowled out for 66 by their visitors.
