Bagborough CC 129 - 5 Beat Walton CC 125 AO by 5 Wickets

Walton travelled to the Quantocks for their match with Bagborough CC in overcast conditions. Walton won the toss and elected to bat first. Bagborough took full advantage of a drying pitch and Walton lost wickets regularly with only N Hubbuck ( 31 ) contributing at the top of the order. After 16 overs Walton found themselves at 60 -6 with M Cox ( 24 ) and T Sharp ( 30 ) at the crease, who steadied the innings with a 7th wicket partnership of 63 to help Walton post a total of 125 all out.

Walton's opening bowlers started well and both created chances early with M Bucknor ( 15 - 2 ) getting the first breakthrough. Jones ( 23 - 1 ) bowled a pacy spell to remove opener R Wood ( 37 ) and after a razor sharp bit of fielding by T Sharp caused a run out Walton had hopes of an upset. However Walton never had enough runs to play with and despite an economic spell of leg-spin by N Hubbuck ( 1 - 17 ) Bagborough CC won the game in the 26th over with successive boundaries.

Unlucky lads, gutted to miss this trip sounded like a good laugh. Well done tom, rumour has it your six has just landed in America, electric fielding and chipping in solidly in the middle order might have to start calling you Jonty.
