Weston ladies’ opening batsmen Emma Whitehead and Alice Wiseman put on 255 without losing a wicket.
WESTON ladies returned to league action away to Wells on a perfect day for cricket.
Weston skipper Roxy Newman won the toss and elected to bat first. This proved to be a good decision as openers Emma Whitehead and Alice Wiseman scored at over five an over for the whole 35 overs.
They hit 33 boundaries during the partnership and ran well between the wickets despite the heat. Whitehead hit her maiden century and finished on 123 not out and Wiseman hit a personal best of 80 not out as Weston scored 255.
After tea, Weston took to the field in great spirits and Georgia Tulip and Newman opened the bowling. Tulip took the first wicket in the fifth over and this signalled the start of regular wickets falling as Newman also started to take wickets at the other end.

Tulip finished with figures of 5-1-5-1 and Newman 7-3-7-3. Newman’s wickets included a good catch by keeper Dannie Stone. Wiseman took over from Tulip and she continued her good day by taking a wicket (2-1-9-1).
Newman turned to coach Sam Evans to bowl at one end, while giving less experienced bowlers the chance at the other. Evans finished with figures of 3.1-2-1-3.
