Weston lost at Bath, after rain forced a revised target for the visitors.

WESTON travelled to Bath and came away second best in a 33-run defeat after rain.

Bowling first, Tom Court removed Robin Lett in the second over, but Weston could not build on that breakthrough as Alex Barrow and Tim Rouse survived early scares to put on 142 for the second wicket.

Sean Stringer removed Rouse for 66, before Ash Allen bowled Barrow for 81. Sam Trego and Allen bowled some tight overs towards the end, but on a flat track, Lloyd Davies was able smash 29 not out from just 13 balls to propel Bath to 258. Allen finished with 3-39.

Weston’s reply started slowly with the wicket of Morgan falling, before Williams and John Davidson saw Weston to 20-1 from six overs before an hour of rain threatened to wash out the game.
