Weston cruise to comfortable home victory
- Credit: Archant
Weston maintained their unbeaten home record with a comfortable victory against Glastonbury.
WESTON maintained their 100 per cent home record with a comfortable seven wicket win against Glastonbury.
Bowling first, Weston made good use of the first 10 overs with Tom Main and Tom Court picking up a wicket each. On a flat wicket with a fast outfield, Weston did well to limit the scoring, but Russell (46) and Ellison were able to put on 109 for the third wicket.
With spin having little impact, the introduction of Chris Davidson broke the partnership as Russell chipped to Williams at mid-on. Another 100 partnership between Ellison and Easton (52) took Glastonbury past 200 before a superb catch by Williams removed Easton.
After passing an excellent 100, Ellison was bowled by Main (10-1-38-2). Persistence paid off for Davidson as three more quick wickets saw him finish with 10-1-47-5 as Glastonbury finished their innings on 255-9.

Turner eventually fell for a responsible 83, but with just 23 needed for victory he had left Weston on the verge of victory. Williams continued his onslaught and in hitting the winning boundary, ended on 68 from just 54 balls.
With second and third placed teams both winning, Weston cannot afford to rest on their laurels and travel to Goatacre on Saturday needing to continue their good form in order to maintain top stop.
