BELVEDERE picked up maximum points with an easy victory over Hardington and West Coker.Hardington won the toss and chose to bat on a wicket offering plenty of assistance to the bowling side and Brian Hosey took advantage bowling excellently. Clements was dismissed with Hosey's third ball, well held by Dave Taylor at slip, Matt Huxtable lured Hallam into a false stroke and Aaron Mott took a simple catch leaving Hardington in serious trouble on 9-2. A Knibbs and E Knibbs put on 49 for the third wicket, but Rob Statham forced the breakthrough as skipper Dave Holland held the catch. Hosey then tore through the middle order with three quick wickets and Statham and Holland finished off the tail to bowl out Hardington for 99, Taylor and Huxtable assisting with good catches.Belvedere's openers Aaron Mott and Neil Chadwick looked more comfortable on a wicket still offering plenty for the fielding side. Chadwick's innings of 52 not out was made up of six fours and four sixes while Mott was more graceful on his way to 49 not out. Belvedere reached their target in just 18 overs, picking up 35 points to Hardington's four.Tasker Printer's man of the match went to Brian Hosey for a marvellous bowling spell.Belvedere would like to thank Darrell's Butchers for contributing to the success of the club fun day. The club would also like to thank Andy Loud for his efforts in organising the event for the second successive year.
