Somerset Under 13′s back to Winning Ways
Somerset Under u13s got back to winning ways in style when they beat local rivals Devon at Chard CC on Sunday.
The Somerset team put behind the disappoint of last week’s narrow loss to Wales with an outstanding 10 wicket victory over Devon
The visitors won the toss and decided to bat first and quickly found themselves in trouble at 20-5 after only 6 overs against the impressive opening attack of Samuel Parsons and Ben Clarke.
Useful contributions of J Moore 69 and L Morrison 44 steered Devon to a respectable 167 all out after 34 overs.
Samuel Parsons returned to snap up 5 wickets for only 19 runs.
In reply Skipper Will Smeed (77*) and Jack Press (82*) shared a fantastic unbeaten partnership of 168 in 32 overs. A partnership based on trust with some excellent running between the wickets interspersed with some clinical shot selection to see Somerset home to an emphatic victory of Devon.
Next game for the Somerset U13′s will be against Cornwall at Werrington CC on Sunday 5th July 1pm start.
