First evening match for ladies

PUBLISHED: 09:41 29 June 2012

Weston ladies took part in their first evening match against Nailsea.

WESTON Ladies travelled to Nailsea to take part in their first-ever evening match.

Weston lost the toss and were asked to field. Nailsea batted their full 20 overs and although they found scoring runs difficult, they had some great defensive play. Top scorer for Nailsea was their opening bat Jo Britt who finished on five not out.

It took Weston until the seventh over to strike when skipper Roxy Newman bowled a double wicket maiden to finish with figures of 4-1-6-2. Fellow opening bowler Emilia Taylor was unlucky to finish wicket less (4-0-4-0).

First change bowers of Emma Whitehead and Alice Wiseman brought about three further wickets, with Whitehead finishing with the best figures of the evening of 4-2-4-2. Wiseman finished with figures of 4-1-5-0.

The last four overs of the match brought Sarah Tedder and Georgia Tulip to the attack with Tedder taking a wicket, ending with figures of 2-0-3-1. Tulip bowled a tight line and finished with figures of 2-0-3-0.

Weston changed their batting order and Laura Foreman was unlucky to depart in the first over. Emma Gibbins (10 not out) was joined at the crease by Josie Smith (9 not out) and they hit the runs required by the fifth over.
