Banwell & Churchill defeated Cheddar seconds by the huge margin of 150 runs.

BANWELL & Churchill entertained Cheddar seconds on what was a perfect day for cricket, looking to consolidate their fourth place in the league.

Deciding to bat first, Brad Carter and Jacob Gale were soon into their stride and soon passed 50 and they looked set to close in on a century partnership when Gale was run out for a well-made 29.

Jermaine Jones joined Carter and another decent partnership was developing when Jones was bowled. Mark Biggs arrived at the crease and helped Carter reach his century, but was lbw soon after for 122.

Biggs (47 not out) and Kyran Gale (29 not out) took the score to 280-3 with some late boundaries.
