Boston CC Firsts remain rooted to the bottom of the Lincs ECB Premier table following an 81-run defeat at Scunthorpe Town.

The under-strength Mayflower men, who have seen two fixtures fall foul of the weather, watched their hosts finish their 50 overs on 276-8, Matthew Cliffe (76) and Scott Nicolson (66) the pick of the batsmen.

Dan Fox, Adeesha Thilanchana and Sam Holland took two wickets apiece while Paul Deans took another and Holland added a run out.

With the bat Boston couldn’t match the run rate but remained stubborn at the crease, fighting on until being dismissed in the 43rd over.

Sri Lankan Thilanchana top scored with a fine 89 while support came from Jon Cheer (45) and Holland (29).

Daniel Cliffe claimed seven Boston wickets.

On Saturday the Firsts host Woodhall Spa (noon).
