Clevedon claimed a 30-run win at Chippenham in their latest WEPL Premier One outing on Saturday.

Put into bat they lost Greg Willows to the first ball of the match, with Cameron Harding (20) and captain Harry Ellison (0) following to leave them 33-3 after 10 overs.

Ryan Thorpe (13) and Will Plummer (11) made starts, with opener Louie Woodland falling for 21 to leave them 83-6 after 27 overs.

Lower-order runs from Luke Pearson Taylor (23), Max Horton (13) and Dan Williams (22 not out) lifted the total to 147 and a good performance in the field ensured that was enough.

Williams (3-16) made the breakthrough with the ball, with Matthew Carpenter (1-35) helping to reduce the hosts to 33-4 in the 10th over.
