Revesby secured their spot in the Lincoln Sunday League Division One for another season following a fine win away at Cherry Willingham.

And seven days later they concluded their season with victory against promoted Scothern this weekend.

The visitors won the toss and elected to bat first. But J. Lewis made the early breakthrough, bowling D. Clark with only one run on the board.

S. May then took a couple of wickets. The score board then advanced to 40-5 as D. Hunt and A. Khalid both struck, dismissing W. Bailey and J. Drabble respectively.

Lewis then re-joined the attack and saved his best bowling for the second spell as he bowled T. Gregory and H. Sriraman in successive deliveries.

Although he could not secure a hat trick he did produce his first five wicket haul of the season, wrapping up the Scothern innings with the score on 64.

In reply, Revesby started cautiously with L. Odlin and W. Laird (29 not out) playing each ball on its merits, before L. Odlin was the first wicket to fall, caught behind for seven with the score on 26.

M. Twells quickly followed, caught behind for a duck, again off the bowling of J. Lawson.

A further 19 runs being added by W. Laird and C. Wall, before the Revesby number four was trapped LBW for nine runs with the score on 45.

This proved to be the last wicket to fall as G. Lane then hit a straight six to bring the scores level before tickling one around the corner to finish on 12 not out.
