Bottom club Belvedere crash at Watchet
Basement club Belevedere bowled league leaders Watchet out for 121, but could only make 48 in reply.
BOTTOM of the table Belvedere travelled to division leaders Watchet with 10 men, following a late withdrawal and were asked to bowl first on a hot afternoon and large outfield.
Excellent opening spells from Sam Mccrea and CJ Neate reduced Watchet to 7-4 and the introduction of Brad Ashfield paid further dividends as the home side were in tatters at 25-7, with the visitors in a great position to record their first win of the season.
Watchet’s tail dug in however and slowly moved the scoreboard along before the returning Neate and Ashfield helped to dismiss Watchet for 121 in the 38th over. Neate (3-18), Mccrea (3-30) and Ashfield (3-33) were all outstanding.
Belvedere had to negotiate five overs before tea and made a disastrous start as Mike Hosey was caught behind off the first ball of their reply and Neil Chadwick fell in the same over. Ashfield quickly followed to leave Belvedere 10-3 at tea.
