The Lincolnshire T20 kings regained the trophy they last won in 2016 with a comfortable eight-wicket victory over Ramsey.

Ramsey batted first and totalled 167-6 with skipper Michael Cafferkey leading the way with 57. He received good support from Taylor West (42) and Jake Towerton was 30 not out at the close.

Bourne made a flying start in reply as Rob Bentley smashed the first three deliveries to the boundary and they raced to 39-0 off three overs.

Two overs later with Sam Evison going well at 24 not out Bourne were home and dry. They reached 168-2 in 14.1 overs to win by eight wickets.
