Rasen take the final game honours, but miss out on league title

DALE Christie bludgeoned his first ton at Rase Park since 2006 and led Market Rasen Town Cricket Club’s Sunday 1st XI to a convincing 49 run win over Nettleham recently.

The comfortable win ended another successful campaign for Matt Rutherford’s men, however Boston 1sts managed to overcome bottom of the table Heckington to take the McKinnells Lincoln Sunday League Premier Division Title by nine points from second-placed Rasen.

Rasen batted first on a glorious late summer’s afternoon in the lee of the Wolds and posted a daunting 215 for 8 from their 40 overs.

Nettleham were all out for 166 in the 33rd over to cap a marvellous season for the Sunday 1st XI.
