In-form Bourne batsman Sam Evison has been called into the Lincolnshire county squad for their match at the Abbey Lawn on Sunday.

The Lincolnshire side are playing two matches at the Bourne base against Cheshire in the Unicorns T20 competion.

Evison has been in a rich vein of form for Bourne in recent weeks and will be making his first appearance for Lincolnshire this season after two outings last year.

He hit an unbeaten 22 not out to seal their success over Staffordshire last season in the match played at Sleaford.

He joins Bourne wicket-keeper Carl Wilson who will be skippering the Lincolnshire side in Sunday's showdown where the two games will start at 11am and 2.30pm respectively.

Lincolnshire are unable to qualify for the latter stages of the competition, but both Evison and Wilson will be aiming to continue their fine form.

Evison smashed 15 fours and a six for Bourne in Saturday's high-scoring Lincs Premier Division victory over Lindum at the Abbey Lawn.

His 93 and Wilson's 37 helped Bourne pile up 288-7 from their 50 overs before they bowled out their visitors for 260.

Evison then hit 82 runs 24 hours later to help Bourne's Rutland League side to a 147-run win over Kings Keys in their Division One clash.

That helped him take his overall average for the season to 59.08 from 18 innings' which have produced 768 runs with a highest score of 104 not out.

Bourne also made progress in the Stamford KO Shield this week after they were handed a bye to the last four when derby rivals Market Deeping cancelled Monday's scheduled quarter-final clash.

That means Bourne will now face Uppingham Town in both the Stamford KO Shield and Stamford Charity Cup competitions.

They make the trip to Castle Hill on Monday night for the Charity Cup clash with the winners facing Stamford Town in the final.

Bourne are also in Jaidka Cup semi-final action on Wednesday night when Wisbech are the visitors to the Abbey Lawn. The winners will meet Ramsey in the final.

Bourne's Lincs Premier Division side make the trip to face Boston on Saturday while the Seconds host near neighbours Billingborough in the Premier Division of the South Lincs and Border League.
