Ex-champs keep up the pressure at the top


FORMER champions Wiveliscombe kept up the pressure at the top of Division One in the West Somerset Cricket League with an away win against Bridgetown.

Wicket-keeper George Hale hit 36 and seam bowler Matt Redwood took 5-44 as Wiveliscombe were 49-run winners over Bridgetown who drop back to fifth place.
However, Ashbrittle remain one point ahead of Wiveliscombe after gaining a 40-run victory over North Curry with Chris Hill 50 not out while Graham Dawes snapped up 5-48.
Champions Holford stay third after gaining a 108-run success against Stogumber with R Wright (80), J Yeabsley (73) and G Webber piling up the runs in a score of 288-5.
James Dingle knocked 51 not out and Jon Reeves took 4-38 and Karl Peatfield 3-20 as West Monkton moved up to fourth spot with a six-wicket win over Bagborough.
It is tight at the top of the second division where only two points separate the three leading sides. Morebath are top but were given a fright by Stoodleigh who made 206-7 with B Torrance 70 not out and taking 5-30. Most of Morebath's batsmen contributed runs. Over Stowey were unlucky to get knocked off the top after their game against Timberscombe was rained off, both sides sharing eight points.
Sampford Arundel share the same number of points as Stowey after they won by five wickets against Crowcombe while Brompton Ralph lost ground after their match against East Huntspill was a victim of the bad weather.
Dunster lead Division Three after pulling off a five-wicket success at Cannington with R Lewis 74 not out while Dulverton now find themselves three points behind after losing by 31 runs to Winsford with James How scoring 52 and Sam WEitheridge 79 and taking 5-17.
New Division Four tabletoppers Huish Champflower were impressive seven wicket winners against Culmstock with Mike Kidner (42), C Shapland (65) and A Dingham (66) hitting a bulk of their runs.
Previous leaders West Monkton 2nds, now second, and Fitzhead, now third, did not play.
In Division Five both Crowcombe IIIs and Watchet handed points to the opposition because they could not raise a side as did Hemyock in Division Three.
Brompton Ralph's second string lead the fifth division by 26 points after winning by 235 runs against Buckland St Mary with William Thorne scoring 76 and Brendon Poole 72 and taking 3-10.
Adrian Sproston slammed 103 for Stoke St Mary but still finished on the losing side against Ashbrittle 2nds whose star with the bat was C Westcott with 119.
