Deeping, who dropped two places to fourth, are now in their customary position behind neighbours Bourne Town in the table.

​As expected Bourne were far too powerful for a Spalding side who have started the league season reasonably well as they powered to their victory target of 173 in just 23 overs at the Abbey Lawn.

Sam Evison struck 77 from 59 balls (11 fours, three sixes) and skipper Jack Berry whacked 40 from 25 balls (seven fours) in an opening stand of 105.

Berry, Rob Bentley and Corey Young each took two wickets earlier in the day.

It was predictably harder the following day at Essex Premier League side Wanstead and Snaresbrook in an Area Final of the ECB Club KO competition.

Jonathan Cheer top scored with 41 as Bourne recovered from 2-2 to post 167 all out, but heavy rain arrived with Wanstead 63-1 from 13 overs, enough to claim victory after a Duckworth-Lewis calculation.

Deeping are at Spalding on Saturday, but Bourne, who are second, are without a fixture.
