Belvedere were beaten at home by five wickets against visitors Kilve.

BELVEDERE hosted Kilve on a hot afternoon on a dry wicket at Priory School.

Belvedere were asked to bat first and were given a sound start by the upper order with Kev Crockett (41), Sam Neate (29), CJ Neate (22), Mike Hosey (15) and Brad Ashfield (13) all looking in form.

Late order defiance from Jack Neville (15) and Nil Chatterjee (18) helped Belvedere to 199 all out.

On a wicket giving help to the bowlers, Belvedere opened up with the pace of Ashfield and the spin of Chatterjee, who both bowled well as Kilve struggled to gain any momentum.
