Cleeve Ducks recorded their first victory of the season in the Proper Job Weston Midweek League.

As the Proper Job Weston Midweek League season came to a close, the Cleeve Ducks were rewarded for their perseverance with their first and only, win.

Leighton Grant made 85 not out as the Ducks scored 170-1 against Weston. John Mayo top scored with 34 as a young Weston side replied with 140-6, with Josh Pratt taking 3-25.

Weston also put up a creditable performance against league runners-up Lympsham Allsorts.

Batting first they scored 122-7 with M Knight heeding his own advice and top scoring with 57. The Allsorts strong batting line-up struggled before 43 from Sam Coles and 29 from Sam Lillycrop saw them to a five-wicket win, with Warne taking 3-35.
