Pre-Season Friendlies

The Club’s pre-season ‘proper’ got underway with a pair of home wins against Westbury on Saturday.

Adam Stapleford-Jones (pictured) top-scored with 76 which, along with 41 each for Matt Chilton and Dan Savin, saw the 1st XI post 200.

Tight bowling from Savin (2-24), Ben Clark (1-17) ,Tom Avery (1-36) and Danny Clark (3-24), and a steady fall of wickets meant that Westbury were never really in the hunt.

On the second pitch, Shahin Ali’s 4-28 and two wickets each for debutants Sam Baker (2-37) and Dan Seager (2-32) saw Westbury’s second string dismissed for 171, with Steve Handley (73*) and Mark Adams (53) making short work of the chase, helping the 2nds to overhaul their rivals’ target with 10 overs to spare.
