Paul Deans.

Jonny Cheer’s 69 runs and Paul Deans’ four wickets weren’t enough to prevent Boston CC Firsts being beaten at Bracebridge Heath in the Lincs ECB Premier.

The Lincoln side reached 187 for 9 with the Mayflower men dismissed for 166.

Scott Elleray and Martin Hodgson backed Deans up with two wickets apiece.

With the bat, skipper Cheer led the way with support coming from Joe Gilbert (18), Luke Gilding (14) and Deans (13).
