Winscombe well beaten in opening fixture

Winscombe lost their first fixture since promotion, with Street running out comprehensive winners.

Winscombe 116

Street 118-1

For their first match after promotion to the Somerset Premier League, Winscombe travelled to Street.

The home side won the toss and asked the visitors to bat on a slow wicket. Winscombe were in trouble after the loss of two wickets witout scoring, but a solid partnership between Rob Scanlon (27) and Jamie Hutchinson (32) helped Winscombe along with a 62-run partnership.

However, a collapse saw them fall to 74-8 and it was only the typically pugnacious batting by Dave Bailey (30) that took them past 100 before being bowled out for 116.

In reply, Street started strongly before some control was restored by Matt Lunn, Mike Coe and Siya Sowati.

Lunn took the only wicket to fall, but Street reached their target comfortably in the 30th over.

Winscombe will hope for a better performance in their first home game on Saturday.
