Winscombe were well beaten by Purnells at The Rec.

WINSCOMBE welcomed Purnells to the Rec where the opposition won a useful toss and decided to bat first.

Winscombe bowled well without much luck, especially for Cureton. After an early wicket for Clough (1-29), Purnells built steadily and increased the rate once Gregory came to the crease.

The hosts stuck to their task well with wickets also for Milnes-Win (2-46), Peters (1-38) and Mike Coe (1-45). Despite this, Purnells posted an imposing 256-6.

In reply, Winscombe lost wickets regularly, with only Bailey (25) and Clough (29), passing 20. In the end, Winscombe were bowled out for 138.

They will hope their batting form returns for the trip to Middlezoy on Saturday.
