Sam Trego felt his side were on the wrong end of a ‘controversial decision’ in their one-wicket defeat to Midsomer Norton.

Defeat was Weston's second in a row after losing to North Perrott in their opening fixture of the season.

However Trego was happy with how his team responded to last week's defeat.

"100 per cent," he said. "The commitment the lads gave both myself and Chris Davidson was of the standard we want continued for the rest of the season.

"We're disappointed to lose the game off the last ball of the match. All 11 of my players gave me 100 per cent and it came down to a controversial decision which went Midsomer Norton's way and ultimately cost Weston the game."

When asked if anyone had impressed him, Trego told Weston Mercury how good it was to have Rob Turner back.

"With the bat Turner impressed on his return with 44," he added.

"With the bowling, George Cox was excellent with 10-2-30-3 and Tom Court with 10-2-37-2 and a very tight spell from Shabs Ahmed with 0-25 off his 10 overs."

With Rob Turner and Peter Trego two of the most experienced players at the club, coach Trego said this weekend's game with Taunton Vale will mark the return of Somerset staffer Peter.

"It's always great to welcome Peter back to the squad," he said.

"He's been in fine form in this year's Royal London Cup for Somerset and we all hope that continues this weekend, but more importantly next weekend in the Lords final v Hampshire.

"Peter, like Rob, brings great experience to the team and because Peter's standards are very high the lads try and match that as best they can.

"It's great to have Peter available this weekend."

Saturday will also see the the return of Tom Chambers and, despite losing their last two games, Trego says they will go into their game at Taunton with confidence.

"Chambers is back from a week off to lead the attack but other than that I will be sticking by the players as I know that they will turn our early form around," he added.

"The mood in the dressing room is very upbeat. The lads are keen to get back to some good training this week and head down to Taunton Vale for this Saturday's fixture."
