Dave Newman was Saturday’s top scorer in the South Lincolnshire and Border League as his knock of 122 helped Billingborough to the top team score of the day.

Newman and Shaun Brown (73) put on 133 for the third wicket as Billingborough finished their innings on 237-4.

Aaron Pullum then took 5 for 24 in reply as Sleaford Second XI were skittled for just 103 as the villagers won the Premier Division match by 134 runs.

There was also a century in the Billingborough Second XI game in Division One, but this time it was scored by the opposition.

Kevin Manning struck an unbeaten 107 for Boston Thirds who racked up 200-8 before bowling the visitors out for just 105.

Elsewhere in the division it was a tough day at the office for Timberland as they were beaten at home by Long Sutton.

The hosts were bowled out for just a meagre 64 as Sutton completed a commanding nine-wicket win.

But Heckington fared even worse at home in the day’s only game in Division Two.

Steve Clements claimed eight Heckington wickets for just 13 runs as the home side were all out for 28 in reply to Graves Park’s 184, of which Mitch Griffiths hit 62.
