U15’s win the Cup!

WSMCC Under 15’s won the Cup Final on Monday night!

Weston Under 15’s won the North Somerset Youth Cricket League cup on Monday night, beating Cheddar by 6 runs.

Batting first, the nerves showed early on, as as Weston top order that have been so strong all season struggled, with only John Fleming (21) making it into double figures. Cheddar put pressure on with some accurate bowling, and Weston lost regular wickets. A partnership of 34 between Jake Richards (18) and Dexter Trego (12) for the 8th wicket helped drag the score along, with Weston eventually finishing on 105-9.

In reply, Adam Whittock (4-12-1) took an early wicket, but Cheddar were up with the required run rate after 10 overs. Superb spells from Dexter (4-9-1) and Lewis Richards (4-13-0) slowed the scoring rate down, and Jake Richards took an excellent catch at backward point to put more pressure on. With Cheddar needing 10 from the final over, up stepped Davis Trego, who bowled an excellent over to concede just 3 runs, as Weston ran out winners by 6 runs.

An excellent game played in great spirit. Credit must go to Cheddar, who’s young team did themselves and their club proud.
