AN outstanding all-round performance from captain Tom Smith has lifted Purnim to its first win of the Grassmere Cricket Association season.

Purnim travelled to take on reigning premier Panmure in a one-day game.

The visitors made 149 with Smith top scoring with 60 at number three.

Panmure was well placed in the run chase at 2-91 before losing a cluster of wickets to fall short after 40 overs with a score of 8-144.

Smith was the most damaging of the Purnim bowlers, finishing with 3-9 off eight overs.

Yambuk remains unbeaten after two rounds after putting its home-ground advantage to good use to defeat Woolsthorpe.
