Jamie Morgan struck his first ton of the Lincs Premier Division season as Market Deeping blasted their way to a 138-run win at lowly Louth yesterday (September 2).
Morgan made 108 in a team total of 281-8 from 50 overs, receiving good support from James Hook (50) and Ali Sharp (33no).
Tom Anderson picked up four wickets as Louth were dismissed for 143.
Bourne were losers by 138 runs thanks to an indifferent display at Boston who amassed 233-9 before skittling Bourne for just 95. Colin Cheer (5-48) was the only Bourne player to impress, although Ben Stroud bowled tidily just days after reaching 500 wickets for the club.
Spalding’s relegation was confirmed with two matches to spare yesterday as they lost by six wickets at Grantham for whom Lincs Minor Counties star Daniel Freeman (7-29 & 39no) excelled.
