MATT Rance took eleven wickets as Buckinghamshire secured their first win of the Minor Counties Championship against Lincolnshire.

The Chesham bowler claimed four first innings wickets before destroying the Lincolnshire order with another seven in the second as Bucks won by 32 runs.

Bucks won the toss at Grantham and raced to 400-8 off 90 overs, with Rance impressing with the bat as well with a quickfire 22 off 17 balls at the tail.

Lincolnshire were all out for 279 but Bucks' plans to accumulate quick second innings runs in the three-day match went spectacularly awry as they slumped to 130 all out in just 34 overs.

Rance took four second innings wickets as Lincolnshire ended day two with four of their top order back in the pavilion.

He returned to finish the job on the third and final day, ending with match figures of 11-182.
