Cleeve suffered double disappointment with a pair of defeats at the weekend.

The firsts took on Bohemians and saw Glenn Lewin (33) and Sam Williams (28) put on 69 for the first wicket, but then fall in quick succession.

Mitch Want blasted 38 off 22 balls, with three sixes and four fours, but James Cole (12) and Joe Hance (17) were the only other batsmen to feature as they were dismissed for 164.

Bohemians slipped to 37-4 in reply, as Hance nabbed a brace and Cole and Ben Miller also had success.

Josh Carpenter claimed three wickets on his debut to reduce the hosts to 91-7, as Alfie Parsons conceded just seven runs in his four overs.

But Bohemians regrouped with a 74-run stand to claim victory and leave Cleeve hoping for better against Midsomer Norton on Saturday.

The seconds welcomed Frenchay thirds, who piled up 266-2 from their 40 overs.
