Uphill Castle's unbeaten start to the season came to an end against a strong Winscombe side, who remain unbeaten in an entertaining game.

Yet again a poor start with the bat made the Castle’s innings a demanding task and they found themselves 29-5 and in desperate need of an innings to inspire them to a decent total.

Fortunately, this came from the capable hands of George Cox.

A counter-attacking 80 was scored by Cox and with the capable support of Andy Llewellyn, who scored 40, the Castle managed to set 210 for their visitors to chase.

Tom Hall's century was his second in as many games.

Winscombe’s innings was defined by their number three, Tom Hall, who scored an unbeaten 108 and made it two centuries in back-to-back to games after scoring 169 at Wells.

You may also want to watch:

Hall was offered support in part by Jack Fraser and Robin Scanlon as they comfortably chased 210 in 42 overs, losing just three wickets in doing so.

It must be said that Uphill had their opportunities, Hall was dropped a number of times – chances that, if taken, could have changed the direction of the game.
