5. Bite hard.
A quiet weekend saw just two games for Lindum as the Saturday 1s and 2s both recorded victories while the Sunday 1st team had their game conceded by Middle Rasen at the last minute. 

Boston were the visitors to Lindum as the first team looked to build on last weekend’s win at Grantham. Having won the toss again, Charlie Tomlinson elected to field first against a side who were promoted to the ECB Premier last season. After a decent opening stand between the two openers, Joe Peatman made the breakthrough, having the opener caught behind by Richard Bishop with the score on 43, before the called-up Jake Benson claimed the wickets of Boston’s number two and three with catches being taken by Luke Robinson and James Kimber. Matt Rutherford then came on to blow away the middle order, claiming the wickets of the next five batsmen to earn figures of 17-1-44-5 – catches were taken by Tom Lindsay and Will Wright who had managed to recover from his rainy covers ordeal on Thursday evening. Luke claimed the ninth wicket which proved to be the last, meaning Boston would finish on 175-9 from their 50 overs. 

The chase was nervier than anticipated, as Lindum lost wickets regularly in their pursuit of the runs. Charlie was first to go for 28 after a solid opening partnership of 46 with Will, but he (24) and Brad Mitchell (9) fell soon after to leave the score on 81-3. Luke and Geoff Middleton put on 30 before Luke, like Will, fell to a questionable LBW and Geoff followed not long after. Bish and Tom made valuable contributions of 20 and 16 respectively while James was out for just four, leaving Ruthers and Jake to get the side over the line. The win was secured with just nine balls to spare; Ruthers finishing with a lovely 15 not out while Jake had just a single. 

Meanwhile the wind was again GUSTING up in Caistor where the Ramblers went in search of their third straight win of the season. With rain clouds hovering and rumours of a shower or two later on, skipper Matt Benson wisely chose to have a bowl after winning the toss again. Things got off to a fine start as a zombified Angus Pickering took a break from his modelling career to strike in his first over with a ball which stopped in the wicket to bamboozle the batsman and take the top of off. First change Ted Horner-Timmins, who is yet to decide what his surname is, was next to strike with the simple catch taken by Will Taylor at mid-off. Ted was unlucky not to take more soon after, as catches were put down by Ollie Alford (definitely the hardest one), Angus and Euan Pickering/Benno to leave Ted in clear frustration, so much so that he took his anger out on his own toes which he seemed to aim for when bowling during the rest of the innings. PITCH IT UP TED. The breakthrough was finally made when Benno bowled the number four, before a mix up between the next batsman and the top scoring number three left Ollie with an easy run out chance to remove the latter. A slightly wayward throw nearly made a mess of things but Euan did well to gather the ball and remove the bails with the batsman out by some distance. Despite the bowler’s best efforts, and with a large chunk of luck and a couple more drops, Lindum only managed to take a further five wickets, leaving Caistor on a total of 131-9 from their 45. The wickets were claimed by Angus, Matt and Ted, with catches being taken by Will Taylor and Max Bauer’s wrist. Will came on at the end, perhaps 40 overs too late, to claim two wickets, but was unable to dismiss the number 11 which meant even if Lindum knocked off the total, the 20 points couldn’t be claimed as Caistor were not bowled out. 

With the rain clouds circling, Benno sent in Will and pinch-hitter Grant Watkins to knock off the runs as quickly as possible. The latter smacked a couple of fours before being the first to be dismissed for 16 after telling Will to block the straight ones and smash the wide ones... He was bowled trying to smash a straight one. Number three Max couldn’t capitalise on his promotion after last week’s heroics, as he was caught at mid-on for four, but according to Max his method of dismissal was “talked out” by the irksome wicketkeeper. Ok Max. This brought the extremely fresh looking Angus Pickering to the crease for one of the best innings from anyone in a Lindum shirt this season. A 35-ball 72 ensued, which included six fours and five sixes, three of which came back to back off the last

three balls to seal an eight wicket victory for Lindum with all of 27 overs to spare. Will did a superb job at the other end for an unbeaten 36 to top off another solid fantasy points day. Despite earning such a comfortable victory, Lindum only took 15 points from the game, showing the importance of not bowling half way down the wicket and holding your catches. Nonetheless, the winning run continues.
