Freiston, Leake and Leverton recorded their second friendly victory ahead of their South Lincs and Border League Division Two season... beating Revesby by 56 runs.

They now look in good shape for the upcoming league matches, after their triumph over a resolute opposition.

Batting first, Freiston lost early wickets to Revesby’s impressive new ball bowlers.

However, a 77-run partnership between Richard Paul and Zeeshan Saeed put Freiston on the right track.

Paul made 56 and Saeed 26 before they were both dismissed with the score on 96.

Darren Tate smashed his way to 46, including six sixes.

His innings took Freiston to a very competitive 158 off their 40 overs.

With the ball, quick work from Taimur Mian saw Steadman run out, but a determined partnership between Roberts (15) and Jeffrey took Revesby past 50.

The key over was bowled by Tommy Atkinson after drinks, a good throw from Darren Tate saw Jeffrey (32) short of his crease before Atkinson clean bowled Twells.

Freiston then were in control of the match and bowled Revesby out for 102, with Ollie Booth claiming three wickets.

Freiston begin their South Lincs and Border Division Two campaign next week away to relegated Moulton Harrox seconds.
