Uphill Castle crashed to another defeat, with their batting woes continuing.

Uphill Castle welcomed Minehead and ended up losing the game by seven wickets.

The visitors won the toss and asked Uphill to bat first and were soon in trouble losing Sam Frost in the first over and things got even worse with more wickets falling cheaply with the scoreboard showing 16-4.

The only two batsman to reach double figures was again Dayne Siede (48) and young Tom Llewellyn (14) and this resulted in Castle being all out for 105.

Minehead went into bat and and reached there target in 22 overs for the loss of three wickets with George Fox (1-7), Luke Bliss (1-24) and George Cox (1-25) claiming the wickets.

On Saturday, Uphill are away to Wembdon still looking for their first win of season. Autosmart man of match was Dayne Siede.
