Defending champions Bourne were dumped out of the Winkworth Cup on Monday in the semi-finals as they lost by 34 runs to eventual winners Sleaford.

Sleaford won the toss and chose to bat first. Star of the innings was Thomas Shorthouse who scored 90 runs off 60 balls, with 10 fours and two sixes coming off his bat.

He was eventually stumped by wicketkeeper Carl Wilson off the bowling of Tom Dixon, who took five wickets for 25 runs, but he had already done the damage.

Sleaford skipper Shaun Morris added 38 to help his side finish on 153-8.

It proved to be too much for Bourne who lost their top four batsmen for just 24 runs.

Skipper Peter Morgan was gone for 16, and Sleaford bowler Cameron Hill (3-8) took the wickets of Jack Berry (0), Sam Evision (5) and Wilson (2) in quick succession.

Matthew Kidd top scored for Bourne with 28 but it was not enough as they were all out for 119 in the 19th over.
