Over­seas star Ma­sood takes five wick­ets in Bourne win

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Et Sport -

BOURNE com­pleted a mem­o­rable week by beat­ing Bos­ton by six wick­ets in the Lincs Premier Di­vi­sion on Satur­day.

Two League wins plus a beat­ing of Peter­bor­ough Town in a Jaidka Cup semi-fi­nal is proof that the club have emerged smil­ing from their early-sea­son slump.

Bourne’s over­seas player Fa­had Ma­sood is cer­tainly prov­ing his worth.

He re­turned some more im­pres­sive fig­ures as Bos­ton were skit­tled for just 140.

Ma­sood took 5-37 while Char­lie Hopkins chipped in with three wick­ets to help skit­tle the strug­gling home side.

Skip­per Pete Mor­gan (59no) and opener Owen Smith (39) then en­sured Bourne suf­fered few alarms in reg­is­ter­ing a third straight Premier Di­vi­sion suc­cess.

Mar­ket Deep­ing en­dured a dull af­ter­noon at league new­com­ers Hartsholme, who stopped chas­ing their tar­get of 226 with fully 25 overs to go.

Deep­ing cap­tain David Gil­lett (47) and Chris Jones (35) re­paired some early dam­age to their in­nings be­fore Lee Pea­cock (53) took ad­van­tage of some weak back-up bowl­ing.

Hartsholme never looked likely to make a se­ri­ous chal­lenge for vic­tory and even­tu­ally set­tled for a draw at 156-8.

Pea­cock con­ceded just 11 runs from his 10 overs and claimed two wick­ets.

Ali Sharp and Michael Kearns also took two wick­ets apiece, but not even some late joke bowl­ing could tempt the home side to play a few late shots.

Bourne’s Char­lie Hopkins has played first-class cricket for Cam­bridge Uni­ver­sity this sum­mer.

The all-rounder has claimed two wick­ets so far – his first vic­tim was Sur­rey skip­per Rory Hamil­tonBrown.
