High-flying Washingborough thumped Crowle Outcasts’ second team in their weekend’s league tie, with Jason Whiteley picking up the side’s only wicket.

Bowling first, Crowle shifted opening batsman Geoff Sewell for 18 runs.

However, they were unable to move the persistent Sam Housam who rattled up an impressive century.

It took a Whiteley run-out to see Housam return to the pavilion with 113 runs to his name.

But having dispatched Washingborough’s main man, Crowle had it all to do again in the field as Mark Willey proved relentless at the crease.

Willey carried his bat for 70 as Washingborough declared on 201.

That decision proved to be the correct one as Crowle’s opener James Glew went for a duck.

Whiteley proved to be Crowle’s top scorer with 22 as they stuttered to a lowly 62 all out.
