Clevedon 2nd XI slipped to their first defeat of the season, falling 22 runs short of their target.

Hanham 196-6

Clevedon 2nd XI 174

Clevedon 2nd XI suffered their first defeat of the league season, going down by 22 runs to Hanham.

Andy Payne (2-50) and Will Thirkell (1-20) were the pick of the Clevedon attack as Hanham posted 196-6 from their 45 overs, with two late run outs also halting the hosts’ momentum.

But Clevedon’s reply never really got going, with only Tabish Khan (20) and Ben Keysell (33) reaching 20.

Andy Payne (19 not outs) late charge gave Clevedon a lifeline, but his efforts proved to be in vain as Dan Van Grudging’s side fell 22 runs short.

Frenchay 93

Clevedon 3rd XI 96-1

Clevedon 3rd XI’s impressive start to the season continued as they cruised to a nine-wicket victory over Frenchay at Clevedon School.

Tyler Leaman (4-9), Jack Davey (3-14), Jack Banks (2-4) and Pat Childs (1-37) were in the wickets to help bowl Frenchay out for just 93 inside 38 overs.

And the reply was just as convincing, as Jack Davey’s quick-fire 67 from just 57 balls – with 10 fours and two sixes – was well supported by skipper Chris Bennett (23 not out), to complete another commanding win.

Clevedon progressed into the second round of the WEPL Twenty20 competition with two convincing victories over Shapwick & Polden and the day’s hosts, Congresbury on an action-packed Sunday in North Somerset.

Clevedon 256-5

Shapwick & Polden 187-7

In game one against Shapwick & Polden, Clevedon stormed out of the blocks to amass an incredible 256-5 from their 20 overs, as Greg Willows (70 from 39 balls) and Harry Ellison (83 from 40 balls) took control.

Jake Lintott (32 from 17 balls) and Max Curtis (27 not out from 12 balls) added further impetus at the tail-end of the innings, as Clevedon scored at over 12 runs per over throughout the innings.

In reply, Shapwick’s Steven Tinnion took the attack to Clevedon from the off, smashing 78 from just 49 balls, before Jake Rowe (4-20) began to leave his mark on the innings.

The spinner removed Edmunds, and then Stratton and Jenkins in successive deliveries, before the big wicket of Tinnion, trapped lbw by Rowe.

Jake Lintott (2-28) and Greg Willows (1-18) were also in the wickets, as Shapwick closed on 187-7.

Clevedon 226-5

Congresbury 129-6

In similar vein to the first game, Clevedon made an electric start to the final fixture of the day, in what had turned out to be a winner takes all clash against the hosts.

Greg Willows (52 from 31 balls) led the way once again with his second successive half-century, before Jake Lintott (87 from 47 balls) and Max Curtis (59 not out from 29 balls) assumed centre stage.

The pair powered Clevedon past the 200 mark again, smashing 19 fours and three sixes between them in a brutal assault, to take the total to 226-5 at the end of 20 overs.

Congresbury’s reply suffered an early setback when Heinrigh Pietersen had the dangerous Thomas caught by Greg Willows in the deep – and from here, Clevedon took full control.

Dan Williams, Jake Rowe, Jake Lintott, Max Curtis and Greg Willows all chipped in with a wicket apiece, with a late flurry from Congresbury’s Kearns (53 not out from 36 balls) taking the hosts to 129-6.
