SPL Premier Division
South Wilts CC 276-6
Bashley (Rydal) 151

BASHLEY (Rydal) suffered their third straight loss at the weekend, this time a 125-run timed game defeat to last year's dominant champions, South Wilts.

An aggressive 110 runs from South Wilts' Tom Morton helped the hosts set an imposing 276-run target for Bashley, but after losing captain Josh Digby (0) on his first ball, the chase never looked likely.

After winning the toss and electing to bat, Bashley made early inroads when Dan Goodey (2-53) bowled opener Jack Stearman (10) at 39-1. However, the next wicket would not fall until another 127 runs when Digby (2-61) bowled Jack Mynott (60) at 166-2.

Morton smashed his 110 in 145 balls, including 13 fours and two sixes and, together with Ben Draper (33), they marched on to 222 before the latter was out. Morton finally followed when Digby took his wicket, but the damage was done, and the hosts finally finished on 276-6.

Jacob Gordon (1-19) and Harry Broderick (1-43) finished with a wicket apiece.

Bashley's chase got off to a miserable start with Digby out LBW first ball, while Ben Francis (14) and Jacob Gordon (7) soon joined him by the time 28 runs had been scored.

Michael Porter (9) also struggled in the face of the miserly South Wilts bowling attack before Harry Broderick (24) and Phil Morris (23) shared a 47-run partnership. Ultimately, both fell with the score on 90 when Morris was trapped leg-before by Matt Burton (3-47), and Broderick fell to the lethal Josh Croom (4-45).

Mitch Wilson (36 not out) battled on till the end, but he eventually ran out of partners, with Goodey, Will Tripcony, Sam Crisp and Ben Fletcher all dismissed for a combined 10 runs.
