Sills & Betteridge Solicitors
Lincoln Cricket League
Still searching for a win, Caythorpe were visited by Woodhall Spa 2nd who were playing their first game as their previous match was called off.
Batting first, Caythorpe made 148, with C. Catleugh top scoring on 56 as John Temperton took 4-27.
In reply, Woodhall lost four wickets before securing victory. Top scorer was Adam Barker with 42.
Old Lincolnians were playing their fourth successive home game when taking on Billingborough Academy who had lost their previous two games after opening the season with back to back wins.
Batting first, the visitors made their worst total of the season, being bowled out for 91. Chris King was once again their top scorer with 35 as Darren Chester had figures of 6-2-7-3, supported by Mike Savage with 3-21.
Chester then top scored with 23 as the home side made their target inside 22 overs with five wickets in hand. Paul Goodwin was Billingborough’s best bowler with 2-17.
Barkston and Syston recorded their first home victory while visitors Carholme remained winless.
With only nine players, Carholme were all out for 79 with Jack Dernley their top scorer on 21. For the home side, Adam Jameson took 3-15 off 10 and Steve Wilson 3-8 off 6.5.
When Barkston batted, it was not plain sailing as they lost five wickets before victory. This was due much to an unbeaten sixth wicket stand between Neil Jameson (12no) and Darren Glover (26no). For Carholme, Sam Shawley took 3-20.
Fulbeck with Ancaster the visitors. Having been put in to bat at home by local rivals Ancaster, Fulbeck were thankful for a knock of 59 from opener Travis Sawyer as he was the only batsmen to make double figures, as their innings closed on 107.
For Ancaster, Liam Probert took 3-27 and Nick Bottomley 2-5.
In reply, only two players made double figures for them with Probert making 39 and Will Harris 21.
With just 12 from the remaining 10 players, they were bowled out inside 27 overs for just 78.
For Fulbeck, both Travis Sawyer and Jake Pollard took 3-17.
