Bracebridge Heath and Woodhall Spa have a game in hand over the leading pair of Skegness and Haxey in the Lincolnshire Premier League. They will play their extra game on 27th August and are 25 and 35 points respectively behind leaders Skegness, who have a seven-point lead over second-placed Haxey. Boston and Hartsholme are the only sides in the league yet to top 100 points and are firmly ensconced in the relegation zone.

1. Jonathan Cheer (Boston) – 225 runs from three matches
2. Graham Attenborough (Haxey) – 186 runs from three matches

Peterborough Town have romped to the top of the Northamptonshire Premier League and have opened up a 39-point lead over their nearest rivals and previous leaders Northampton Saints. Old Northamptonians and Finedon Dolben both have 240 points and are in joint third, seemingly out of the hunt for the title. Meanwhile, Horton House continue to reside at the foot of the table and have won only one of their 15 matches in 2012.

1. Marcus Stoinis (Peterborough Town) – 129 runs from three matches

Best bowling: Afaq Babar (eight for 32 for Old Northamptonians against Wellingborough Town on 21st July)

Cuckney are leading the Nottinghamshire Premier League by 20 points over the county’s Academy, having won nine of their 16 matches. Caythorpe lead a tightly-bunched chasing pack in third, with Kimberley Institute, the rain-hit West Indian Cavaliers, Mansfield Hosiery Mills and Clifton Village all within a handful of points of them. Wollaton and Worksop are still the lowest ranked of the sides in the league, but it is not beyond the realms of possibility that either could yet avoid relegation.

2. Akhil Patel (Kimberley Institute) – 173 runs from two matches
3. Darren Bicknell (Caythorpe) – 168 runs from two matches
