BELVEDERE continued their impressive run of form with a 37-run victory over a strong Whitchurch side.After winning the toss, Belvedere shrugged off the early loss of Chadwick and Aaron Mott continued his good form. Mott punished any loose deliveries, looking comfortable off front or back foot. Gary Gullick was less fluent, but provided fine support for the free scoring Mott. The pair put on 111 for the second wicket when Gullick was dismissed for 19. Mott fell shortly afterwards for a superb 83. Dave Holland and Ian Tasker set about building on the good start and both batted with great discipline, offering few chances. Whitchurch bowled and fielded well, but had no answer when Holland and Tasker looked to increase the run rate over the last 10 overs. Tasker, who is enjoying one of his best seasons at the club, smashed eight fours and three sixes on his way to 75 not out and Holland finished on 58 not out, Belvedere posting a competitive 255-3.Belvedere knew they would have to bowl well against a strong batting line-up. Matt Huxtable provided the perfect start, using a change of pace to dismiss Bell.Gammon was well held by Chadwick off Huxtable and Belvedere's perfect start was added to as Holland bowled Brown. M Gammon and Mezsaros added 68 for the fourth wicket, but the partnership was broken by Dave Taylor who lured Gammon into a mis-timed drive and Mott held the catch. Rob Watts dismissed Mezsaros and from then on Whitchurch's reply was in decline. Huxtable returned to take two more wickets to finish with excellent figures of 4-62 and Brian Hosey destroyed the lower order with three wickets.The bowlers were supported by excellent catches, especially by Tasker, Holland and Mott.Ian Tasker was the Tasker Printers man of the match.
