Burghley scored 319-5 in 45 overs before skittling their visitors for 27 with Michael Jones taking 6-8.

Hobbiss’ knock was enough to top the Peterborough Telegraph merit table batting charts. Colin Cheer’s 8-43 for Bourne at Boston was the best bowling performance of the week.

Pete Rowe’s 124 not out for Ketton Sports against Great Glen was a second successive Leicestershire League ton.
