WINSCOMBE suffered their fourth consecutive defeat at Old Bristolians-Westbury as they continue to struggle to adapt to the Bristol and Somerset division.Electing to bat on a hard wicket that had inconsistent bounce throughout the game, Winscombe made a slow start as they found Old Bs bowling difficult to get away.Ross Toohey and Brad Loveluck were patient and eventually managed to get on top of the bowling and put together a useful partnership of 80 for the second wicket before Toohey was leg before to one that kept low for 42.Alan Hunt then joined Loveluck and these two kept the scoreboard ticking along before Loveluck was bowled for 46.Winscombe then went into the last 10 overs with seven wickets in hand but could only manage 33 runs as the innings ended in a bit of whimper with only Hunt with 37 making a score of any note as Winscombe ended on a disappointing 162-8.Old Bs in reply lost an early wicket but also started quickly with Harris finding the boundary frequently and when King began to play some aggressive shots Old Bs looked well on course, but another useful spell from Neil Pollard (15-2-44-2) and some support from Matt Lunn (14-3-51-3) saw them dismiss Harris with the aid of a good catch by Steve Bawden and King leg before to Pollard, Winscombe started to get themselves back in the game.However Parnell guided Old Bs towards their target and despite three quick wickets falling, he guided them home with overs to spare. Ross Toohey with 1-14 claimed the other wicket to fall. Ringway man of the match was Brad Loveluck.
