Another top ton for Moulton Harrox ace Jack in crushing Timberlands victory

Jack Barnett cracked his third century of the South Lincs and Border League Division One season on Saturday to inspire an emphatic Moulton Harrox win.

Opener Barnett took his run total for the season to 665 (average of 166.25) with an unbeaten 121 as Harrox crushed Timberlands by 102 runs at Broad Lane.

Having been put into bat, Harrox lost Matt Barnett (1), Joe Broomfield (1) and Karl Hibbert (9) early on.

But there was no stopping Jack Barnett, who anchored the innings superbly.

In the end he was left holding his bat, with Harrox bowled out for 210 in 39 overs. It was something of a one-man show for Moulton, with extras (22) being the next best scorer for the hosts.

Harrox did produce a top team display in the field, however. Matt Barnett (3-17), skipper Martin Chapman (2-7), Will Naylor (2-21), Broomfield (2-26) and Alex Baker (1-17) all took wickets to bowl the away side out for 108.

Simon Behan (44) was Timberlands’ best performer with the bat.

The win leaves Moulton third in the table ahead of Saturday’s home date with Grantham 3rd (1.30pm).

  • Figures of 5-54 from Nick Crook couldn’t stop Pinchbeck losing their SLBL Division Two fixture with Burgh and District by 124 runs on Saturday.

Crook’s five-fer included the scalp of Mark Johnson, who scored an impressive 105 to steer the visitors to 203-8 at Spalding Grammar School.

In reply Crook also top scored with 28, but James Langford (18) and Andrew Beeston (12 not out) were the only others to make double figures as Pinchbeck were knocked over for 79.

  • A valiant 47 not out from number nine Ryan Hallam (ten fours) was in vain as Long Sutton 2nd lost by 29 runs against seven-man Graves Park in SLBL Division Two on Saturday.

The depleted visitors managed 124 batting first at Paradise Field, with Martin Hodgson (45) top scoring and Hallam taking 2-53.

Sutton looked like being bowled out for a pittance in reply, but Hallam’s 36-ball knock at least took them to 95 all out.
