It was a day to forget for Middle Rasen as they were comprehensively beaten at home by Sleaford on Sunday in the Lincoln League Premier Division.

The away side won the toss and chose to bowl first, a decision which proved to be the correct call.

From the start Sleaford applied great pressure with the ball and restricted Middle Rasen to scoring at a slow rate.

The home side never really got a partnership together as Cameron Hall (3 for 8) and Obus Pienaar (5 for 12) tore through the home side and bowled out Rasen for 53 inside 19 overs.

A special mention should go to Simon Godby who took four catches in the field, two of which were difficult.

With such a low total to defend Sleaford were in no mood to hang around as they started on the offensive.

Despite some good bowling from Chris Higgins, who saw a couple of chances for wickets go by, Sleaford were never in trouble as their openers knocked off the runs after eight overs without loss.
