A superb six-wicket haul for Haris Nadeem helped Freiston, Leake and Leverton to a comprehensive victory over Spalding Thirds on Saturday.

Booth clean bowled Keith De Keyzer before Sam Young edged behind to keeper Stewart Kirtley.

John Goodfellow had top scorer Holmes (18) caught behind in his first over, before Nadeem clean bowled Lewis Martin in his first over.

Nadeem then went on to rip through the Spalding middle order.

The youngster clean bowled Chris Klompas for seven, William Holmes for six and Bseen Edwards without scoring.

With Spalding all out for 67, Freiston needed less than 16 overs to reach 68-1.

Richard Paul hit 16 runs before he was bowled, but Sunil Panjwani (40) and Stewart Kirtley (five), saw them over the line.
