Winscombe’s promotion hopes took a knock as they lost by three wickets to Taunton.

Winscombe 120

Taunton 2nd XI 121-7

Winscombe travelled to the fine surroundings of Taunton Cricket Club looking to consolidate their promotion prospects.

After winning the toss and batting, Winscombe started quickly through Michael Hayes (30), but from 48-1 in the ninth over wickets started to fall to the accurate Taunton spinners.

Only David Bailey (30) with some big hitting added any respectability to the total as Winscombe were bowled out for 120.

In reply, Winscombe knew that early wickets were important, but they had to wait until 53 for Jory Cureton to take the first of his two wickets (2-37). The wily Mike Coe they tied up the Taunton batsmen in taking his first five-wicket haul for the first team (5-33), but Taunton did enough to reach their target and win by three wickets.
