Bourne were dumped out of semi-final in the Readers Lincolnshire ECB Premier League Winkworth Cup competition yesterday (Monday).

Bourne, the current cup holders, came up against Bracebridge Heath in the Twenty/20 competition at Sleaford Cricket Club and were pipped by eight runs.

Bracebridge totalled 179-6 and Bourne made a very bright start.

A breezy 39 by skipper Peter Morgan saw them reach 59-1 after five overs and it was looking good.

They lost their way in the middle of the innings a bit but with three overs to go they were handily placed at 147-6.

But Bracebridge bowled well under pressure and Bourne ended up just short.
