It’s top versus second on Saturday as Boston Cricket Club Firsts will travel to face leaders Billingborough.

The two rivals have the only remaining 100 per cent records in the South Lincs and Border League Premier Division, and now something’s got to give.

“I’m hoping that it’s a great game of cricket,” said Boston captain Tom Baxter.

“We have both won six from six so far.

“The best team on the day will win the match. We are only a quarter of the way through the season, so this is by no means a title decider.”

He added: “We must maintain our high standards in the field from start to finish.

“If we can save 35 runs in the field on Saturday, then it is 35 less that we need with the bat.”
