Winscombe were beaten by more than 100 runs in an away match at Street.

Winscombe won the toss against Street on a pitch affected by overnight rain.

After asking the visitors to bat, Winscombe reduced them to 32-3 with some tight bowling, but the Street batsmen recovered well thanks to some quick running and a generous sprinkling of wides.

It took the reintroduction of the controlled aggression of Clough (5-27) to make further inroads. Fraser (2-31) also bowled with good control in picking up his wickets as Street ended on 222-7.

In reply, Winscombe started carefully with Shephard (14) and McElduff (11) putting on 28, but after they were dismissed wickets fell regularly. Bradley (23), Lund (15) and Mike Coe (11) were the only other players into double figures as Winscombe fell to a heavy defeat, being dismissed for 103 to lose by 119 runs.
