Weston amassed 221-3 against the Strollers in the Weston & District Midweek League, running out winners by 79 runs.

In Division 1 of the Proper Job Weston & District Midweek League, Weston posted their highest total of the season, 221-3, in their defeat of the Strollers.

R Welch top scoring with 64 not out before Dom Mayo stepped in to take four wickets to thwart the Strollers efforts and despite the best efforts of Simon Green subsided to 142 all out.

In Division 2, the Parpagon Carriers got back to winning ways with a comfortable win over the Cleeve Ducks. Batting first, they totalled 155-5 with Geraint Reynolds scoring 77 and Rob Latham 24 not out. Roxy Newman was rewarded for a good spell of bowling with figures of 2-15.

In reply, Harry Wiseman top scored with 38, but the Ducks were always struggling against the bowling of Suneel Nazim (2-20) and Ian Joyner (2-3) and finished on 102-6.

In the Ducks next outing, Leighton Grant made the top score of 33 in a disappointing total of 76-7 against Winscombe, who were coasting to victory after an opening stand of 50, before a flurry of wickets halted their progress and they were grateful to Ben Goodrum, who guided them to a five-wicket win with 34 not out.
