Wellington completed the Sunday League double over SCL Division Two side Bagborough as the Red and Blacks consolidated second place in Division A of the Taunton and District League with this 68 run home win last weekend.
On a tricky pitch Wellington slipped to 25-4 as although Luke Desave and Scott Davey played some nice shots G.Scutt was busy himself taking three wickets.
Charlie Davies and Ollie Wilkins with 20 and 23 respectively steadied things for Wellington, but both were out before the score had reached 100 and there was work to do.
Rob Moysey with 59 and Alex Sparks with 60 reacted to this need with a 102 run stand for the seventh wicket as both played superbly.
Wellington had made a fine 206-9 at tea on a hard batting surface.
When Bagborough slipped to 15-4 they were replicating Wellington’s issues, but Wood with 42 and Bailey with 39 rescued their innings and their skipper White with 31no added late good runs.
All of Wellington’s attack bowled well from Jack Beal and Macaulay Campbell who took the first four wickets to fall to Ben Evett whose legs spinners were delivered well, Alex Sparks with 3-9 delivered good value on a rare outing with the ball and Robin Davies took the final wicket to fall and special mention goes to Scott Davey who hold three excellent catches.
Wellington are at Stogumber next Sunday for a friendly and then entertain Chard the week after in their next Sunday League game.
Trevor Brooks sends the following message to all WCC players
Following on from the players survey which I completed I have been asked to join a workshop/focus evening at the county ground in Monday 3rd June.
Has anyone else from the club been asked?
I understand that this is being run to obtain a players view on amateur recreational cricket to enable the ECB to consider the future of cricket at grass roots.
Whilst I have my own views I thought it would be good to ask if any Wellington CC members want me to take forward their opinions and ideas on their behalf.
Please e-mail your thoughts to Trevor at firstname.lastname@example.org by month end so that they can be taken forward.
Wellington are in second place in Division A of the Taunton Sunday League following this mighty 178 run win at Bagborough last weekend when runs and wickets flowed all round.
Aks Latifi and Robin Davies added 83 good runs first up and the stand was only broken when Latifi was run out going for a second leg bye - he made 65.
Davies with 39 played the anchor role and is enjoying a fine early season run with the bat.
Ollie Wilkins and Alex Sparks added good middle order runs with knocks of 42 and 17 and the icing on the cake was applied by Luke Desave with 39no and Scott Davey with another fine knock of 53no.
272-4 was the final Wellington total and this was an imposing total, but when Eve slammed the first ball of the Bagborough innings for six the home side showed they were not going to go down without a fight – they scored at over seven an over, but lost wickets all the time as Eve with 21 and their 1st XI captain Bishop with the same top scored.
George Hooper served up a fine yorker to see the back of Evans and Jack Beal with 6-34 in six overs was the star of the show with the ball for Wellington.
Arron Campbell with 3-27 took a part too as the home innings spanned just 13 of the 40 overs on offer.
