UPHILL Castle captain John Davidson lost the toss and was unsurprisingly asked to bowl on a hot day and on a good wicket.Midsomer Norton were soon regretting this after Kridge was caught behind by Davidson off the bowling of Moffat and captain Martin Cox soon followed from a superb diving catch in close by Alex Luke off the bowling off Holt. Moffat and Holt continued to rip through the top order and Norton soon found themselves on 19-6.A fight-back came from Purchase (22) and Clifton (31), but it was too little too late as Moffat finished with figures of 4-33 and Holt 3-13. They were aided by Kennedy 1-23 and Trego 1-12. Davidson kept well, claiming four dismissals and with a run-out claiming the last victim, Midsomer Norton finished their innings 107 all out after 37 overs.Uhill had 62 overs in which to chase the 108 needed for victory but this was not going to be needed as the Castle opening pair showed what a good batting wicket it was by repeatedly finding the boundary. Sam Trego finished not out on 78 off only 52 balls including three sixes. He was aided by the solid Steve Cooke who finished 28 not out. Uphill won inside 17 overs and picked up a much needed first win with maximum points. Mirage Interiors man of the match went to Tom Moffat for a great spell of bowling.
