Portishead Cricket Club’s opening batsman, 15-year-old Kyran Garrett scored his maiden century for the Sunday Development XI.

Portishead Sunday Development XI 222-5

Barrow Gurney 3rd XI 155

A maiden century for 15-year-old opener Kyran Garrett was the obvious highlight for Portishead in a comfortable victory at Barrow Gurney.

Remarkably it was the third successive senior game that Garrett, who also opens for the 2nd XI on a Saturday, had carried his bat.

The mature innings, which was entirely chanceless, was punctuated with 11 fours.

Garrett (105 not out), compiled a 100-run partnership for the opening wicket with fellow youngster Keiran Monks (42).

Charlie Dangerfield (21) and Tony Mott (25), made useful contributions, but it was the relentless Garrett who dominated Portishead’s total.

Wickets were shared among the bowlers as Portishead comfortably defended the target.

David Peel, Tom Boylan and Bala Krishnasamy took two apiece, while Dayanand Bembde took three as Portishead moved into second place of the North Somerset League Sunday Conference Division 4.

Portishead 2nd XI 145-4

Cleeve 2nd XI 151-4

An innings of 96 not out from Jamie Elswood was the difference between the two sides as Cleeve went past Portishead’s total with eight overs to spare.

Some clean striking, aided by being offered several lives by Portishead, showed that the visitors were perhaps 40-50 runs short after being invited to bat.

Openers Kyran Garrett and skipper Bob McGhee made a steady start but Portishead’s innings never really caught fire against a disciplined bowling attack, with Louis Ferris picking up two wickets.

Only a late flurry from Richard Bache (37 not out), and Garrett (45 not out), gave Portishead a total that they had a chance of defending after tea.

Two early wickets gave Portishead a sniff of victory, but despite an excellent spell from young Ethan Monks, the visitors had no answer for Elswood.
