Nailsea Cricket Club traveled to Brislington looking to get back to winning ways.
Having won the toss and asked the hosts to bat first, good opening spells from Liam Lester ( 1-24 ) and Adrian Procter ( 3-17 ) immediately put Brislington under pressure.
Wickets continued to fall at regular intervals, with Jack Smith,( 1-27 ) Alan Rogerson, ( 2-20 ) Steve Lester, ( 1-8 ) and Richard Billows ( 1-24 ) all contributing as Bris were bowled out for 136. In reply, Mat Beadle fell for 5, but the in form Gary Phippen was then joined by Rob Lange.
The pair took Nailsea to 61 before Phippen was run out for 21. Liam Lester contributed a hard hitting 28 from just 21 balls as he and Lange added a rapid 66 for the third wicket.
Despite two quick wickets, there were to be no dramas as Nailsea cruised home with almost twenty overs to spare.
Man of the Match Rob Lange, was to finish unbeaten on 65, an innings that contained a dozen boundaries and a maximum. Next week Nailsea host Old Park at The Grove, with a 1 o’clock start.
Friday night will see the second All Stars and Dynamos sessions at The Grove. Nearly 90 youngsters attended and their enthusiasm and skills were great to see. Under the guidance of coaches Terry Robinson and Gary Phippen and an army of helpers, a fantastic time was had by all.
The future and reinvigoration of junior cricket in Nailsea is off to a fine start.
