Clevedon 2nd XI 246-7

Downend 2nd XI 181

Clevedon 2nd XI made it two wins from two in B&D Division One with an emphatic 65-run victory over Downend 2nd XI at Dial Hill.

Batting first for the second successive week, Marc Jenkins (38) and Tabish Khan (28) got the hosts off to a strong start, before Ben Hussey (40) and Will Carpenter (45) upped the ante in the middle order with a flurry of boundaries.

The pair departed in quick succession, but with a deep batting line-up to fall back on, Dan Van Grudgings (18 not out) and Olly Wilson (17 not out) took Mark Bibbing’s side to an imposing total.

It was the skipper who then set the tone for Downend’s reply with an impressive and economical opening spell, going on to concede just 16 runs from his nine overs.

Jack Houston (1-27) made the breakthrough for Clevedon before Adeel Khan (1-41) followed it up with a second. Will Carpenter (2-31) and Dan Van Grudgings (2-37) made further inroads, before Tabish Khan returned to clean up the tail with two wickets in three balls.

Khan finished the job with a run out to claim the all-important 10th wicket, as Clevedon wrapped up an impressive home win.

Frampton Cotterell 2nd XI 108

Clevedon 3rd XI 112-2

Nick Carpenter struck an unbeaten half-century to lead Clevedon 3rd XI to a resounding eight-wicket victory over Frampton Cotterell 2nd XI.

The left-hander hit four fours and four sixes in a 32-ball blitz to lead Chris Bennett’s side to their target of 109 inside 24 overs. George Salmon (29) also chipped in, as the 3rd XI eased home in comfortable style.

It was the bowlers who set up the win with another impressive display, as Jack Davey (3-24), Tyler Leaman (3-24) and Jack Banks (3-26) took three wickets apiece to dismiss Frampton for just 108 in the 26th over.

Joe Childs (1-19) was also in the wickets, before Carpenter and Salmon finished the job to make it two wins from two at the front end of the season.

Clevedon 4th XI 266-6

Alveston 79

Jenson Henley starred with bat and ball as Andy Ford’s 4th XI kicked off the season with an impressive 178-run triumph over Alveston.

The skipper led from the front with 55 at the top of the order, before retiring not out, allowing Jenson Henley to smash a superb unbeaten 78 and propel Clevedon to 266-6 from their 40 overs. Zak Malpas (25), Archie Birbeck (22) and Josh Baker (21) all chipped in with valuable contributions.

With an imposing total on the board, Henley (3-22) backed up his fine effort with the bat with three wickets to complete a superb day for the youngster, while Malpas (2-8), Archie Birbeck (2-9) and Edd Birbeck (1-6) combined to bowl Alveston out for just 79 inside 21 overs.
