Winscombe held up by the rain

Winscombe’s season was ended by the rain, when in a good position against Bridgwater.

WINSCOMBE welcomed Bridgwater A to the Rec on a warm day and upon winning the toss invited the visitors to bat.

Bridgwater struggled on the soft wicket and lost early wicket to Milnes-Win (2-32) and the excellent Peters (3-26). The opening bowlers were well supported when Fraser (1-4) and Clough (1-27) and there were accurate, economical spells from Lunn (7-3-11-1) and Guy Coe (7-2-8-1).

Winscombe gradually worked their way through the batting before Bridgwater were dismissed for 127 in the 44th over.

In reply, Winscombe only had time to reach 5-0 before a thunderstorm left the ground under water and ensured the match ended in a tie.
