Portishead remain stuck in the relegation zone after coming up short against Bristol Pakistanis.

Off-spinner Neil Lenihan took 4-34 after Mike Hooper nabbed an early brace to dismiss the hosts for 199.

But although five players made decent starts in reply, none could go on to play the major innings needed as Will Cooper (43) top scored.

Wicketkeeper George Parsons weighed in with 35 but Portishead were dismissed for 181.

The seconds claimed a 41-run win voer YMCA thirds, after teenager Kyran Garrett scored a composed and classy 90 in their 241-4.

Garrett shared stands with Simon Garrett (61) and Toby Francis (61 not out), which proved vital in the outcome.

Portishead took wickets at regular intervals in the YMCA reply, despite Callum Middleton hitting a powerful 61.

Jack Jenkins, Phil Thoburn, Sam Dangerfield and captain Bob McGhee all took two wickets to help Portishead to victory.
