WEPL Premier One
Ashcott & Shapwick 60 lost to Bristol 62-0 by ten wickets
ASHCOTT & Shapwick are now rock bottom of Premier One after a thumping ten-wicket defeat by Bristol on Saturday.
Batting first at Northbrook Road, Ashcott slumped to just 60 all out inside 16.3 overs, with only two players making double figures.
And Bristol ensured it would be a much earlier finish than usual, racing to their target in 6.2 overs to secure am emphatic win.
Having won the toss, Ashcott were in almost immediate trouble, losing Nayan Kamarkar with the score on three.
Oskar White followed shortly after, before a flurry of five wickets saw the hosts struggling at 37-7.
James Hayman (18) and Gareth Harte (14) did their best to repair the damage, but when both fell Williams (4-31) and Rudge (6-26) respectively, the game was up for Ashcott.
Bristol wasted little time with their chase, as Snell (27no) and Bann (25no) blasted the ball to all parts, as the Ashcott bowlers disappeared around the ground.
Ashcott travel to Taunton St Andrews next Saturday, hoping for a major improvement to get their season back on track.
