Winscombe lost their first league fixture of the season at home to Burnham.

Winscombe 226-6

Burnham 227-4

Winscombe welcomed Burnham to the Rec for their first league game of the season, but the visitors went away with the spoils.

On a good pitch prepared by groundsman Doc Davies, Winscombe batted first and were given a sound foundation by new recruit Michael Hayes (59) and the experienced Jory Cureton (82).

Both men coped well with a predominantly spin-based attack and allowed positive knocks by Rob Bradley (26) and Steve Bawden (25 not out) to follow. Winscombe’s final total of 226-6 was strong.

Chris Clough (1-36) made things difficult for the Burnham batsmen in reply. Cureton (1-37) and Bradley (2-41) were also in the wickets, but an assured innings from Driver (79 not out) steered Burnham to a six-wicket victory with four overs to spare.
