East Huntspill defeat the Presidents to reach the semi-finals of the Weston Midweek League Stephenson Memorial Cup.

East Huntspill eased into the semi-finals of the Proper Job Weston & District League Stephenson Memorial Cup with victory over the Presidents.

Batting first, they scored 172-2 with M Crook top scoring with 49 not out before Sam Neate made 49 to give the Presidents a chance, but the target proved too much and the reply finished on 135-8 with J Picton taking 2-26 off four overs.

In Division 1, the Strollers’ disappointing season continued with a heavy defeat against East Huntspill. They found it impossible to cope with the bowling of Lee Holmes, who claimed six victims at a cost of just nine runs off four overs and were dismissed for 20, which Huntspill knocked off for the loss of two wickets.

Lympsham Allsorts’ title challenge suffered a setback when they were defeated by Weston in a double header. Weston batted first and totalled 141 all out, which allowed the Allsorts to pick up maximum bowling points, but despite Jamie Howson once again impressing with the bat, the reply faltered after a fine spell of bowling from Georgina Tulip and they finished 17 runs short.

In Division 2, Wedmore recorded an emphatic win over the Parpagon Carriers. Batting first, they posted an impressive total of 178-5 with Scott Harris contributing 90 not out.

Sam Blackmore took 3-12 as the Carriers were restricted to 93-7, with Suneel Nazim top scoring with 25.
