League champions Trull were too strong for Lympsham & Belvedere and won by 106 runs.

Lympsham and Belvedere travelled to league winners Trull and having lost the toss were asked to field first.

McCrea (0-22) and A Taylor (2-17) bowled fine opening spells to restrict the scoring with the latter removing both openers, one a fine catch by Dave Luff at slip.

Trull batted sensibly in the middle overs as the combination of T Ferns (0-39) and Jack Luff (1-34) bowled well, it was J Luff who got the breakthrough as Ball was well held by Neate behind the stumps.

Trull continued to accumulate runs before the introduction of Neville saw the loss of Sapey (42) and Gould (30) both well caught by Taylor and CJ Neate. Neville (2-32) and Chadwick (1-24) bowled well at the end of the innings restricting Trull to 175-7.

In reply, Lympsham and Belvedere made a poor start as N Chadwick (0) and CJ Neate (4) fell cheaply. Jack Luff (29) and Hancock (10) led a counter attack reaching 44-2 before a collapse ensued.

Walters (6-5) and Fitt (2-8) ran through the visitors’ batting line-up as they struggled to cope with the extra bounce. S Neate resisted well as partners fell around him before Lympsham and Belvedere were bowled out for 69 inside 20 overs.

Lympsham Concrete man of the match went to Jack Luff.

The Sunday XI season ended in an eight-wicket defeat at Whitchurch. Electing to bat L&B slipped to 15-3 before Rich Drew and Brian Hosey added 46 for the fourth wicket before Drew was caught for two.

Hosey and George Nuttycombe added a further 57 for the fifth wicket until Hosey was caught behind for an excellent 58 with the score on 118-5. Nuttycombe soon followed for a fine 27 and only Jon Lodge (24) added lower order runs as the visitors were dismissed for 161.

In response, a lacklustre end of season bowling display, other than Simon Pilgrim (8-1-20-0) saw Whitchurch score freely and reach their target for the loss of only two wickets after only 24 overs.

The only highlights being a wicket for Kevin Crockett and a direct run out from CJ Neate.
