Jack Berry was the other wicket-taker with 3-33 and he then struck 48 off 49 balls to ease Bourne home without loss in 14.5 overs.

Bourne moved up to fifth in the table.

Market Deeping and Spalding also continue to climb up the table.

Both won again after picking up their first wins of the season the weekend before.

Market Deeping were at home to Sleaford and won by three wickets thanks in the main to a fine innings of 75 by opener Josh Smith. He received good support from Jamie Morgan (31) and David Gillett (42no) as Deeping just managed to overhaul Sleaford’s 194 all out with 196-7 in 53.1 overs.

Most successful Deeping bowlers were Zac Simmons (3-38) and Ali Sharp (3-28).

Spalding’s win at home to Louth was much more conclusive.

Josh Newton cracked a brilliant 159 as they compiled a formidable 258-5 and then Louth were bowled out for 178 with Roy Tilley taking 6-42.
