New-boys rumble champions with wicket spree
DIVISION one champions Grimsby Town 3rds were defeated by newly-promoted Broughton 3rds in the North Lindsey League after a batting collapse.
Town were 112 for six in the 31st over but, just two overs later, Harry Warwick's side were dismissed without adding further to their score.
Jamie Parker, who had earlier dismissed both Grimsby openers, came back into the attack to remove Town's lower and tail order.
Captain Warwick top scored for the visitors with 35 from 37 balls.

Broughton passed their target in the 35th over with Neil Simpson (66no) and Nick Dobbs (42no) putting together a fourth-wicket partnership of 79.
Meanwhile, a gallant Outcasts side suffered a narrow defeat against Caistor Cougars at Hirst Priory.
Opener Harry Boulton (38), pictured, and Liam Wood (39no) led the batting charge for Caistor, who posted 151 for eight from their 40 overs.
Despite an opening stand of 99 between Oliver Coulman (73) and Outcasts 3rds captain Liam McAnaney (28), the Cougars clung onto a narrow victory. Youngster Ben Barrick took career-best figures of six for 16 as Caistor restricted the hosts to 137 in reply.
In division two, Barton Town 4ths had an Alex Shreeve fifty to thank for their impressive eight victory against Messingham 3rds. Mark Austin also contributed with 35 runs for Andy Genney's team.
