Leading their division and on course for the championship, Brigg Town Cricket Club turned in one of their most impressive bowling performances in years to secure a quickfire win yesterday in the Lincolnshire County Cricket League, sponsored by Readers.
Brigg bowled out Louth 3rds for just 22 runs at Hibaldstow - a ground with a long history of favouring batsmen over bowlers.
Destroyer-in-chief was Brigg's left-arm seamer Nick Beacock, who took seven wickets while conceding only eight runs - a remarkable performance by the skipper.
'Captain Beaky' was ably supported by fellow opening bowler Tom Brock, who claimed three for nine.
Brigg needed only 4.4 overs to secure an eight-wicket win and bag the maximum 20 points available.
On Saturday, August 5 they will visit Keelby 2nds for the next division four fixture.
