Sam's five-star show for Stamford; Barnack blitz Burghley
A five-star performance from Sam Barrett helped Stamford Town make progress in the Stamford Charity Cup on Monday night.
Barrett bagged 5-16 from a 3.3 over spell to inspire Stamford to a 51-run win over Ufford Park.
Town had batted first after winning the toss and made 166-9 from 20 overs.
Skipper Andrew Hulme made 22 while vital mid-order contributions from Simon Lem (24) and Alex Birch (49no) swelled the Stamford total.
Andy Larkin was the pick of the Ufford bowlers after taking 4-30 from his five over spell.
Ibrahim Javed (29) and Larkin (33) got the Ufford reply off to a solid start before they both fell to Hulme stumpings off the bowling of Birch.
Joe Harrington added 12, but he was only other Ufford batsman to reach double figures as Barrett blitzed the visitors as Birch returned a miserly 3-9 from his five overs.
Town were joined in the last eight by Kings Keys after they beat Castor by 35 runs.
Barnack are also through to the quarter-finals after a convincing nine-wicket win over Burghley Park.
They bowled out their visitors for 71 with Muhammad Yaseen taking 2-26 off five overs and K Kaliq claiming 4-17 off a similar spell. George Holmes top-scored with 16 for Burghley.
Mohammad Hammad led the Barnack reply with an unbeaten 26 while Asim Butt blasted 22 to see the hosts to victory. James Biggs was the pick of the Burghley bowlers with 1-28.
Ketton Sports were handed a bye into the last eight following Uffington's withdrawal.
