Uphill Castle Strugglers made it three wins in four years at the club’s Big Bash event.
UPHILL Castle hosted their annual Big Bash, the first to be sponsored by Stowford Press Cider.
Six teams started the day all hoping to win the Stowford Press Plate, including Uphill Castle, Uphill Strugglers, Weston, Belvedere, The Dolphin and new boys Hornets.
With many teams strengthening for this year’s tournament, the cricket was played to an extremely high standard. The Uphill fans were treated to an all-Uphill final, with Uphill 1st XI entertaining an all-star Uphill old boys XI, the Strugglers.
A packed ground witnessed Somerset star and Uphill stalwart Pete Trego make his return to club, playing for the Strugglers. Trego soon set about the Uphill target hitting an unbeaten 50 off just 20 balls. This included hitting young Uphill Castle spinner George Chapman for 24 in one over.

The large crowd also witnessed the return of veteran Dave Kelley, coming out of retirement for the sixth time to take seven wickets during the day, including a hat-trick against Hornets. For his efforts on the day he was made player of the tournament.
Uphill Castle would like to thank the local community, and all the local businesses who support the club to make this one of the best days in the local sporting calendar.
