Wedmore 2nds (144 for 1) V Sparkford (140 for 9)
July 28th 2012
Wedmore Won By 9 Wickets
A youthful Sparkford decided to bat on a hard fast wicket not previously experienced during this wet summer.
Wedmore's opening bowlers Chris Major (3 for 47) & Marcus Lee (1 for 21) soon dismissed the top order to leave Sparkford reeling. However a aggressive partnership from Dwayne Pinkett (53) & Jimmy Dicker (25) gave Sparkford hope of posting a challenging total.
Tight bowling from Ian Harris (1 for 20) & veteran spinner Josh Burgess (3 for 34) meant Sparkford ended on a below par 140. Excellent catches by Aggie Charalambus & Matt Lacey along with a cleverly worked run out by Andy Patch supported the bowlers.
After a healthy high energy tea Wedmore's openers Marcus Lee (20) & Lloyd Patch (53No) carefully negotiated the early over's with a 49 run partnership. Dave Haning (52No) then injected some urgency with some elegant stroke play through the covers.
Haning overtook Patch to reach his 50 but it was fitting that Lloyd Patch hit the winning runs after his classy controlled innings.
