Graeme guide Belvedere to narrow victory
Belvedere seconds’ Graeme Wigg guided his side to victory over Uphill Castle thirds.
AFTER winning the toss in this local derby, Belvedere seconds asked Uphill Castle thirds to bat first.
However, after some wayward bowling, Uphill took their score to 64 before Latham was bowled by Jennings (2-23), who then also accounted for Stephens. Meanwhile, Doyle was batting well and passed his 50 in style.
The introduction of spin twins James Robinson (4-41) and Nathan Hancock (4-18) proved decisive as Doyle was dismissed for 65 with the score on 138, wickets then tumbled with only Gary Kennedy offering resistance with 16 not out and Uphill’s innings ended on 169.
Belvedere struggled with the opening pair of Jobling (3-13) and Leech (2-33) and limped to 30-5 before Jennings (18) joined Graeme Wigg and forged a partnership of 64 which ended when Jennings was bowled by Ewan Kennedy.

Wigg by now had passed his maiden half century and was hitting the bad ball to all parts. When Robinson was the ninth wicket to fall at 148 and still 22 required tensions were high.
Jack Pitt showed maturity by keeping out the Uphill bowlers and left Wigg to continue his onslaught, which he did by hitting a six off the first ball of the final over and finished on 99 not out.
