It was usual business for Uppingham as they bounced back from their first defeat of the season in the Rutland League Division One at Wisbech last weekend to thrash Bourne by nine wickets.

Alex Ashwin bagged 6-50 as Bourne were shot out for just 115, of which Jordan Temple struck 42.

Jamie Dumford raced them towards the required target with 50 not out.

Stamford won by 12 runs at Wisbech with Andrew Hulme (92) again in the runs. Stamford’s 210 remained just out of reach of the Fenmen despite 49 from Gary Freear and 41 from Josh Bowers. Alex Birch (4-46) bowled well for Stamford and dad Chris (2-25) didn’t do badly either.

Nassington seamer Haroon Bashir destroyed his former club Peterborough Town in a Rutland Division One game on Sunday.

Bashir ensured Town’s reply to the home side’s 199 started in the worst possible fashion by taking the wickets of Chris Milner and Marcus Howard with the first two balls of the innings.

From 0-2 Town did recover slightly thanks mainly to youngsters Kyle Medcalf (33) and Kieran Judd (22), but there was no stopping Bashir who finished with 6-26 as Town were shot out for just 91.

Kiwi Ryan Duffy (74) had dominated Nassington’s innings before becoming one of five victims for teenager Connor Parnell.

The maximum 20 points was enough to send Nassington soaring up the table, but it’s unlikely anyone will catch leaders Uppingham who hold a massive 63-point lead the top.

Barnack’s fine season continued with a six-wicket win at Eaton Socon. The local villagers have only lost once all season - they have two games in hand on Uppingham - and they were too strong for Socon thanks mainly to all-round excellence from skipper Mohammed Yaseen who followed a 2-27 spell with the ball with an innings of 89 as Barnack reached their victory target of 177 with plenty in hand.
