SCCC Club Watch - Week 5
With the Vitality Blast looming, many of those Somerset players not involved in the LV= Insurance County Championship fixture with Hampshire ran out for their club sides over the weekend. Our media intern Ben Redwood casts his eye over the scores.
Tom Lammonby got some valuable time in the middle as he steps up his preparations for the Vitality Blast, scoring 97 not out for Exeter CC. He top scored for his side as they defeated Exmouth CC by 37 runs in the Tolchards Devon Cricket League. The left hander’s knock included five 6’s and was a welcome return to form. Lammonby went on take 2-51 from his nine overs. It was a good day at the office for another Somerset player, as Ben Green opened Exeter’s innings with an impressive 59. Green further shone with the ball too, taking 3-48.
Elsewhere in Devon, Sonny Baker impressed as Torquay CC convincingly beat Seaton CC by 9 wickets. The young seamer, who stood out in Somerset’s pre-season, took figures of 2-11 off of 6.1 overs.
Jack Brooks smashed a quickfire 48* for Taunton Deane CC as they beat Potterne CC in the West of England Premier League Premier Division. Batting first, the Deane scored 221/8. Brooks’ rescued the innings with an important cameo at the end. The headband warrior further took 1-27 from his nine overs as the Potterne were bowled out for 153. Unfortunately, Academy starlet Charlie Sharland could only score 2 at the top of the order.
Will Smeed scored 22 as Bridgwater CC lost by 111 runs to Clevedon CC in the WEPL Premier Division. On Sunday, Smeed ran out again for Bridgwater in the ECB National Club Championship. Opening the batting in the 40-over competition, he scored 16 as his side were on the right side of a 111-run result, as they beat Heathcoat CC.
James Rew and the Thomas brothers were involved in Taunton St Andrews agonising 1 wicket defeat to Ilminster in the WEPL 2 Bristol/Somerset Division. Batting first, St Andrews were bowled out for 147, with Rew (1), George Thomas (1) and Josh Thomas (14) making little contribution. St Andrews excelled with the ball and succumb to an agonise defeat. George Thomas took 0-28 from 3.3 overs, with brother Josh taking 1-33 from his nine overs.
