Banwell remain unbeaten this season as Butleigh were the latest victims.

BANWELL and Churchill travelled to the picturesque ground of Butleigh in there latest league fixture.

Skipper Brett Diver lost the toss and the home decided to bat first and opening bowlers Brooks and Burgess were getting no assistance from the wicket, but were still bowling a superb line and length.

Butleigh’s openers made their way to 60 without loss, but bowling changes from either end changed the game. Once Bush had found his line, he removed the opening batsman and Pearson removed the dangerous number three.

Wickets started to fall at regular intervals with Pearson picking one more and Bush in his two spells ended up with a five wicket haul. Biggs also chipped in at the end with his six overs going for a measly four runs as Butleigh were bowled out for 132.

Banwell’s openers had to face two spinners at the start of their innings. Diver hit some nice boundaries before he was caught behind for 14 and Elvis Langley came and went within two balls.

Young Gale was in next and with Biggs made the batting look easy and the target started to reduce rapidly. Gale took a liking to the slow bowling and smashed a quick 52 in 10 overs before he was caught behind.
