BRIGG TOWN SECOND IN TABLE AFTER CONVINCING HOME WIN
Brigg Town are in second place in the Lincolnshire County Cricket Division Three following a convincing home win over Barton Town 2nds at the Recreation Ground on Saturday (June 22).
There were two half-centuries scored for Brigg, an impressive 122-run fourth wicket partnership, followed by a five-wicket haul with the ball after tea.
Matthew Bell hit 84 and Danny Minshall 75 as Brigg rattled up 233, despite being bowled out with 35 balls still remaining in their permitted 45 overs.
However, it did not matter as Barton were dismissed for 51 in the 24th over, with Nick Beacock taking five for 18.
Brigg won by 182 runs to claim the maximum 20 points on offer.
Broughton 2nds, who are runaway leaders of Division Three, won their home game against Cleethorpes 4ths by seven wickets on Sunday (June 23).
Robbie Ward took five wickets for Broughton who dismissed Cleethorpes for 96. Joshau Smith then finished 44 not out and Craig Hall 24 not out.
In Division One on Saturday, fourth0-in-the-table Broughton's first teamers had a 26-run home win over Normanby Park.
In Division Two, second-placed Hibaldstow gained a narrow two-wicket win in a low-scoring match at Cherry Willingham 2nds.
Hibaldstow did not have a game in the North Lindsey League on Sunday and are without a Lindsey fixture this coming weekend.
