SEPTEMBE 20 SOUTH LINCOLNSHIRE & BORDER CRICKET LEAGUE

SOUTH LINCOLNSHIRE & BORDER LEAGUE


September 20th

Just one game remains in the South Lincolnshire & Border League’s 2014 season when Division Two’s Burgh & District take on Belton Park 2nd next weekend.
In the Premier Division Welby finished on a high note with a four wicket win over Long Sutton but were unable to overhaul Stamford Town to lift themselves out of the bottom two.
But Moulton Harrox made it into the top six after a poor start to the season with a five wicket win over Sleaford 2nd.
The Division One championship went right to the wire with Grantham 2nd emulating their first team to finish top with Spalding 2nd 15 points behind in second place.
Danny Bates ended his season with a flourish, hitting an unbeaten 113 in Grantham’s victory over Woodlands but Simon Jukes missed out on his century, falling for 93 in Spalding’s game against Long Sutton which had to be abandoned because of bad light with a handful of overs remaining.
Chris King made the highest total of the day with 176 not out and Shane George took six wickets as Billingborough 2nd beat Baston to finish third in the division.
Lindum 3rd secured the Division Two title with a win over Belton Park 2nd, with Freiston taking second place despite going down to Boston 3rd.  Four bowlers claimed five wicket hauls in this division, Zakir Gatta of Freiston, Boston 3rd’s Steve Appleyard, Carl Lamming of Pinchbeck and Tony Beardsley whose five for 30 helped Burgh & District to a victory that kept them out of the bottom two.

RENOWNED UMPIRE PETER DOUCE RETIRES

        

Peter Douce, of the Scunthorpe and District Umpires' Association, seen at the end of his last game before retiring, aged 80,  having joined the panel 33 seasons ago. It was taken on Sunday (Sept 14) when Broughton 2nds hosted Caistor 3rds in the final Lincolnshire County Cricket League division four game of the 2014 season. 
It was a memorable match, with Russ Blackburn, of Broughton, hitting seven sixes and taking 28 runs of an over. His side, batting second, needed only 96 to win and Russ got the bulk of them.
Lincolnshire League chairman Bob Welton was at the game and kindly took this picture to mark the end of Peter's lengthy career.

SEPTEMBER 13 SOUTH LINCS AND BORDER CRICKET LEAGUE

SOUTH LINCOLNSHIRE & BORDER LEAGUE

Results, September 13

Grantham were crowned South Lincolnshire & Border League champions without facing a ball after Skegness 2nd were forced to concede their game due to lack of players.
This gave Grantham 20 points which meant that, despite Boston also gaining 20 against Stamford, the leaders could not be caught.
Lindum Ramblers finished third after a slender two wicket win over Bourne 2nd who claimed fourth place.
But the tightest game of the day was at Sleaford where the visitors were Welby.  Simon Godby hit 69 and Phil Sneath 51 as the home side finished on 228 for eight.  Darren Bradbury then made 58 to help Welby towards their target but Godby ended a good day by dismissing three of the visitors’ lower order for ducks to give him five for 50 and Welby were all out just three runs short of the Sleaford total.
Rob Bee was the division’s only centurion, making 115 in Woodhall Spa 2nd’s win over Long Sutton and Belton Park ended their season with victory over Moulton Harrox.
The top of Division One is still in the melting pot, Market Deeping 2nd missing the chance to consolidate top place after going down to Cavaliers by 13 runs and Billingborough 2nd also losing out to Long Sutton 2nd.
Grantham 2nd moved to the top with a win over Heckington in which Oliver Clawson scored the day’s second ton, finishing 100 not out.  And Spalding 2nd kept their hopes of promotion alive with a win over Boston 2nd.  Grantham, Spalding and Billingborough each have one game to play this weekend while Deeping have completed their season.
At the bottom of the table, Long Sutton 2nd, Friskney and Baston also have one game to play as they fight to avoid finishing in the bottom two.
Frieston and Lindum 3rd continue to dominate Division Two, Lindum currently nine points ahead of their rivals, each with a game to play.  Five of Freiston’s players fell victim to Grantham 3rd’s up and coming 19 year old Charlotte Cross but Darren Tate took six for Freiston to help them to a comfortable win.
