Freiston, Leake and Leverton beat Revesby by 64 runs in a friendly.

Having been put into bat, Freiston lost both openers early, but Richard Paul and Rob Sexton put on 26 before Paul was caught by the wicketkeeper.

Sexton made an impressive 32 before being trapped LBW.

Bishop, then dismissed Martin Hodgson with an unplayable delivery and - despite 15 from Sunil Panjwani and 11 from Stewart Kirtley - Freiston were in trouble at 92-8.

A 38-run partnership between Ollie Booth (19) and Taimore Jian (17) lifted Freiston to a respectable 131.

In reply, Revesby put on 19 before Twells was bowled by Jian.

Tommy Atkinson claimed three scalps in his opening spell and the fifth wicket fell when Booth bowled top scorer Laird for 21.

Martin Hodgson picked up two wickets and there was a wicket apiece for John Goodfellow, Ashok Kumar and Sunil Panjwani as Freiston eased to victory, bowling out their hosts for 67.

Freistons host Long Sutton seconds on Sunday in their first game in the South Lincs and Border League Division Two.
