It was celebration time for Market Deeping and Spalding yesterday (May 27) as the bottom two teams in the Lincs Premier Division gained their first wins of the season.

Market Deeping were at mid-table Grimsby and sent them packing for just 100 with Ashley Fisher taking 6-42.

The visitors then cruised home at 102-3.

Faisal Javed hit 94 for Spalding and Josh Newton 63 and then Javed completed a man-of-the-match performance by taking 6-29.

Bourne’s in-form batsman Peter Morgan was again in good nick in his side’s game at home to Lincoln Lindum.

Lindum were restricted to 235-8 in reply with Tom Dixon taking 4-39.
