Ross Barnes top scored for Market Deeping against Woodhall Spa.

Their opening day stroll to victory against neighbours Bourne now seems a long time ago. Yesterday Woodhall Spa proved 83 runs too strong at Outgang Road after amassing 221-7 in their 50 overs.

No blame can be attached to Sri Lankan import Sachithra Perera. The leg spinner took six of the seven Woodhall wickets to fall at a cost of 51 runs from 14 overs.

Ross Barnes (33) top scored in Deepings’ 138 all out.
