Nailsea Under-15s register their second win of the season.
NAILSEA Under-15s secured their second win of the season at home to Cheddar.
Batting first, the Cheetahs were restricted to 69-9 in their 20 overs with excellent bowling from Ben Marshall (2-2) and Sam Richards (3-11), backed up by Zach Rigby in the field with a couple of catches and a brilliant run out.
In reply, Cheddar had Nailsea at 26-4 after nine overs, but some sensible batting from Riddicks (26) and Pring (17 not out) steered Nailsea home to a well-deserved victory.
Nailsea Under-13s won this Bristol Youth Cup game against Bishopston by 20 runs and face a trip to Bedminster in the quarter-final.
Tej Chadeesingh (12) and Jack Houston (27) got Nailsea off to a good start and Glenn Lewin scored a quick 26 to push the hosts over a 100.
Nailsea’s bowling and fielding were again effective. Chadeesingh accounted for Tom Rowland, with Sam Iles, Ben Pinkney, Matt Edwards, Lewin and Houston all taking a wicket.
Ollie Cattermole held on to a great catch on the boundary and Iles ran out Vickerman with a direct hit.
Congresbury batting first started well against some wayward Nailsea Under-13 bowling and had soon reached 30 with the loss of just one wicket. However, Ben Pinkney took three quick wickets, supported well by Charlie Bircham-Davies, Jack Davidson.
Spin bowler Josh Allen took four wickets in two overs for no runs to bring the Congresbury innings to an end at 67.
Nailsea got off to a poor start losing Chris Green for a duck and Matt Edwards for two, but Harry Davies batted sensibly, punishing the bad ball and reaching 28 not out to steer Nailsea home by six wickets.
