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.
