Afterwards Steve Snell the Second XI coach said: “It was an excellent day for us with some great contributions from a number of the side. Peter Trego played a very well paced innings in the first game, while Max Waller was outstanding with the ball in both games and excelled in the field.

“Ollie Sale bowled with excellent pace and control in both games and is improving his control with every game. There was an exciting innings from Tom Banton in the second game, and a very good partnership with Ryan Davies which set up game winning total for us.

“Ryan faced just one ball which he didn’t score off throughout this innings and himself and Tom’s partnership was the deciding factor in us winning the second game.”
