Bourne shock the lead­ers

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - World Cup -

BOURNE caused the shock of the day by ham­mer­ing Lincs Premier Di­vi­sion ti­tle favourites Brace­bridge Heath by seven wick­ets.

The league lead­ers, who crushed Mar­ket Deep­ing by a mas­sive 362 runs the last time they were in the area, have now been beaten two weeks in a row – a big­ger shock than re­al­is­ing Wayne Rooney is ac­tu­ally rub­bish.

Bourne have been in great form though and it showed as they dom­i­nated a one-sided con­test from start to fin­ish.

Im­pres­sive over­seas star Fa­had Ma­sood con­tin­ued his ex­cel­lent form by tak­ing 4-42 and fel­low open­ing bowler Char­lie Hopkins chipped in with a 3-39 spell as Brace­bridge slumped to 134 all out.

Tom Lind­ley picked up a cou­ple of wick­ets and once Bourne had over­come the dis­ap­point­ment of los­ing both open­ers cheaply they can­tered to vic­tory.

Cap­tain Pete Mor­gan en­joyed him­self against the club he left in the close sea­son to fin­ish un­beaten on 51, while Con­rad Louth played pleas­antly for his 42 as Bourne cruised home.

Deep­ing also en­joyed a de­cent day as they saw off Sleaford by five-wick­ets at Out­gang Road.

Tom An­drews has been bowl­ing well all sum­mer and he trans­lated per­for­mance into re­sults with 5-39 as the vis­i­tors were bowled out for 151. Alis­tair Sharp bowled just four overs, but picked up 3-13.

And that to­tal proved no prob­lem for Deep­ing. Skip­per David Gil­lett top scored with 40, Chris Jones made 26 not out and James Mor­gan added 24 be­foreLee Pea­cock blasted a quick­fire, un­beaten 23, fin­ish­ing the con­test with two huge sixes.
