Banwell and Churchill 2nd XI recorded their fourth league win in as many games with this surprise victory over local rivals Belvedere.They invited their visitors to bat on a wicket that played low after the recent wet weather. Belvedere enjoyed little luck as no fewer than five batsmen lost their wickets by playing the ball onto their stumps.Banwell also helped their demise by taking some good catches through Dave Eckett, Jamie Burn and George Johns. All this resulted in Belvedere being bowled out in just 36 overs for a total of 148.Jamie Biddle took 1-30 in 12 overs, Dave Eckett 5-43 also in 12 overs, Jamie Burn 3-43 in eight and Adrian Bucknor 1-23 in four. Special mention should be made of youngsters George Johns, Seb Williams Mat Bebber and Michael Pye who all fielded well.In reply, Mike Legg and Dave Eckett put on 40 for the first wicket before the latter was bowled for 15. Biddle hit a quick 14 before he holed out.A match winning stand of 90 then followed between Legg (55 not out) and Dave Pye (48 not out) saw Banwell reach their target and keep their place at the top of their division.
