Clevedon 2nd XI cruised to a comfortable four-wicket victory to remain top of the league table.

Whitchurch 218

Clevedon 2nd XI 219-6

Tabish Khan’s 50 and an unbeaten 45 from youngster Scott Ford saw Clevedon 2nd XI record a four-wicket victory over Whitchurch.

Khan scored 56 at the top of the order, while Ford played with power and maturity alongside the experienced Dan Van Grudgings (40), as Mark Bibbing’s side chased down Whitchurch’s total of 218.

Nick Carpenter added 36 at number three before falling in the 16th over, leaving Ford and Van Grudgings to guide the ship home and keep Clevedon top of the table.

Earlier, Andy Payne took 3-43 and Adeel Khan 2-30, as the visitors’ spinners took charge in the middle overs.

And their efforts proved important, as Clevedon’s batsman edged to victory with 10 balls to spare.

Clevedon 3rd XI 303-3

Long Ashton 2nd XI 224-4

Tyler Leaman and Jack Davey struck their maiden senior centuries as Clevedon 3rd XI beat Long Ashton by 79 runs.

Aged just 14, Leaman’s incredible 158 came from just 113 balls and included 22 fours and two sixes, while Jack Davey’s 108 came from 93 balls with 18 fours.

The pair added 256 in a remarkable second-wicket partnership, before Jack Houston (2-37), Jack Davey (1-39) and Pat Childs (1-33) ensured Long Ashton wouldn’t threaten the league leaders’ total, securing a comfortable win.

Greg Willows has been named in a 14-man England Under-19s squad for two tests against South Africa at Scarborough and the Emirates Riverside in July.

Willows, who joined Clevedon ahead of the 2018 season, has featured heavily for Gloucestershire Second XI this season, as well as playing his part in Clevedon’s strong start to the WEPL Premier One season.
