Winscombe started the new season with victory at Almondsbury.
WINSCOMBE got the new season up and running with a friendly visit to Almondsbury.
Winscombe were asked to bat first and openers Jory Cureton and James Durrans-Paul started slowly but assuredly against an attack who were making the most of favourable conditions. Durrans-Paul was bowled for five, leaving Cureton to be joined by overseas player Wally Wright.
Both batsmen passed 50 at similar times. However from here, Wright went on to bring up his maiden Winscombe century.
Wright was dismissed in the penultimate over for an excellent 110, while Cureton finished on an accomplished 89 not out as Winscombe reached 239-2.

Roger Willmot took the next three wickets and skipper Iain Fraser chipped in with a wicket to help Winscombe peg the home side back.
