Elsewhere in the division, Middlezoy’s game against Purnells was abandoned with the hosts on 115-1 – M. Troman (55no) and I.

Lacey (35no).

In Division 2, Jay Darrell took 4- 27 for Kilve but they were beaten by five wickets by Barrington.

C. James top scored for Kilve with 50 as they posted 135 batting first – but it was well below par and Barrington reached their target with relative ease.

J. Sellick scored 42 and took 2-42, but it wasn’t enough to prevent North Newton from slipping to a 44- run defeat at Huish & Langport.

Mark slipped to a five-wicket defeat at Cheddar II in Division 5 after being bowled out for just 149 batting first.

In reply, Chilton were all out for 114 with only J. Adams (43) in the runs.

J. Rawles fell two short of a deserved century as Wembdon Wyverns beat Burnham II.
