June 10th  The battle for the top of the South Lincolnshire & Border League Premier Division continues with the three closest contenders all winning at the weekend.

Billingborough occupy first place after a four wicket win over Bourne 2nd in which Dave Newman hit an unbeaten 88.  Freiston defeated Stamford Town by 20 runs to stay second and third placed Skegness overcame Spalding 2nd.

Just 11 points separate the teams but Skegness have three games in hand on Freiston and Billingborough two, making next weekend's Freiston v Billingborough fixture the one to watch.

Grantham 2nd occupy fifth place after inflicting a big defeat on Boston 2nd who are bottom of the table with Sleaford 2nd in fourth following their victory over Market Deeping 2nd.

Lachlan King hit the division's highest total of 98 for Skegness with Rory Johnson hitting 81 and Martin Parmley 74 for Grantham and Matt Lyon with 64 for Sleaford.  The only five wicket haul came from Damian Lawson of Boston with five for 54.

Division One is also tight at the top with Welby Cavaliers' victory over Billingborough 2nd taking them above Long Sutton who were playing a cup game.

Both teams have played six matches, with Welby leading by seven points.

Third are Baston whose good season continued with a five wicket win over Boston 3rd and Belton Park are in fourth after beating Timberland.

James King made 67 for Claypole and Kristian Lennon followed this up with five for 40, while for Belton Park, Dan Reynolds hit an unbeaten 90 and Tom Ward recorded the day's best figures of seven for 11.

Heckington kept up their challenge for a return to Division One, defeating Pinchbeck in the only game in the second division.
