Freiston, Leake and Leverton bowed out of the Village Cup at the second round stage after they were well beaten by an impressive Cropston side.

Cropston made an imposing 257-6 off their 40 overs, with I. Allan scoring exactly 100 and Tiller striking 84.

For Freiston, Darren Tate picked up three wickets and Connor Goodfellow excelled in the field with three fine catches.

In reply, Freiston lost early wickets but Zeeshan Saeed made an unbeaten 74.

He was supported well by Stewart Kirtley (23), Darren Tate (17) and Ollie Booth (32).

Ultimately, Saeed’s efforts weren’t enough as Freiston were bowled out for 169.
