  • Spalding Town remain second in Rutland League Division Six after comfortably seeing off rivals Long Sutton 2nd on Sunday.

Brandon Andrews (52), Matt Gill (32) and Hafiz Majeed (30) helped steer Town to 186 as they batted first at the Memorial Field.

James Baker (3-61) and Beth Milnes (3-37) both starred with the ball for Sutton, giving them real hope of victory.

Nick Crook (3-45) was the pick of the Pinchbeck bowlers on what was a tough day in the field.

The home innings ended on 100 all out, with Crook (14), Danny Jackson (20) and James Langford (20) the only real contributors.

  • Barry Stanway’s 59 wasn’t enough for Long Sutton against Market Deeping 2nd in SLBL Premier Division on Saturday.
