Weston crashed to their first defeat of the season away at Brislington.

Weston suffered their first defeat of the season at Brislington, losing by 30 runs.

After winning the toss and electing to field, Sean Stringer made an early breakthrough removing Rhys Grove for three. However, with contributions right through the order, without any one Brislington batsman going on to a big score, the scoreboard ticked along steadily ending with the hosts posting 211-4 from their 40 overs.

Further wickets fell to Stringer and two to the left-arm spin of Ashley Allen.

Weston set off confidently in pursuit of a score that was only par on a good early season wicket and despite the early loss of Andy Fear, they were well placed at 72-1 to close out victory.
