A bit of al-Wright! Andrew’s ton settles derby in Long Sutton 2nd’s favour

Andrew Wright finished unbeaten on 104 as Long Sutton 2nd defeated Pinchbeck by nine wickets in South Lincs and Border League Division Two.

The unbeaten century helped Sutton’s second string chase down Pinchbeck’s 189-5 in an impressive 31.2 overs.

Pinchbeck, who won the toss and elected to bat, will have felt they made a competitive score at Paradise Field.

Opener Nick Crook led from the front with a superb 73 for them, while Peter Crook retired not out on 18 and Mike Knight racked up an 18 of his own.

Also scoring solidly were skipper Danny Jackson (17), Gary Neumann (15) and Rob Goudling (10 not out) as Pinchbeck almost made 200 in their alloted overs.

For Sutton, two bowlers took the wickets with Josh Baker (2-28) recording impressive figures.

In reply, Sutton were in sensational form. Wright’s terrific ton was the obvious highlight as he cracked an amazing 16 fours en-route to reaching the milestone.

Fellow opener Tommy Sayer was dismissed by Jamie Frost (1-45) for 17, but number three Jeremy Smith proved a fine foil for Wright.

Smith made a half-century that included seven fours before the innings closed with him unbeaten on 56.

Sutton 2nd stay in the bottom two despite their 17-point haul, while Pinchbeck are now fourth.

Also in SLBL Division Two, Spalding 3rd beat hosts Heckington by four wickets.

Jack Sawyer took 3-3 to help bowl the home side out for 110, before an unbeaten 45 from Nigel Gardner helped Town reach 114-6 in reply.

Spalding are now third in the table.
