The Bourne batsman went on to reach 147 in a Rutland Division Two game at Burghley Park and yet still finished on the losing side.

Burghley’s Navneet Agnihotri, Chris White and Sam Nicholls all made half centuries to help Park past Bourne’s 253-6 with five wickets in hand.

Three Uffington players all scored exactly 100 last weekend. Damien Herrick and Ivan Wilson both finished 100 not out in a South Lincs Division Two win at Long Sutton and Rob Bentley bashed 100 in a Rutland Division Two win over Werrington.
