The Sunday League XI are runners up in Section A of the Somerset County Sports Sunday League after Bridgwater got more then the seven points they needed to retain the title against Chard today.
We will receive the trophy at our Dinner and Dance event on Saturday 26th October and then again at the League event on Friday 6th December.
Well done to all involved in this achievement.
Wellington Sunday XI are leading Division A of the Taunton and District Sunday League following this five run win at Chard last weekend, but will probably have to settle for runners up spot to Bridgwater as they need just seven points from their home game with Chard next weekend to retain the title.
Wellington collected 22 points from this game and it was a close run thing as Chard – relegated to Division B for next season – came to within an ace of winning the game off the last ball.
Wellington had batted first on winning the toss and Aks Latifi and Ben Evett added 35 runs first up before Latifi was stumped for 20.
Evett made a personal best score of 46 and was closing in on a debut fifty when Hurley took a one handed catch on the boundary to deny him.
Charlie Davies made a fine 103 and Wellington’s middle and lower order all chipped in with Luke Desave’s 15no getting the Red and Blacks to 246-8 at tea.
Chard’s innings started awfully as Macaulay Campbell and Max Capaldi reduced them to 5-3, but Wellington took just one more wicket all innings as Mawdsley with 91, J.Scott with 91 too and R.Scott with 32no got Chard mighty close to the win and had Arron Campbell not bowled Mawdsley when he did the home side may well have won with a bit to spare, but George Hooper’s fine seven over spell was a controlled and well delivered effort as was Rob Moysey’s leg spin offering and Luke Desave kept his nerve to deliver a dot ball last ball as J.Scott was eyeing up a leg side six to win.
This has been a good Sunday League season for Wellington and runners up spot is a good effort, but they will rue losing at Wembdon last month as if that match had been won then the title may just have been secured after winning at Bridgwater and here at Chard.
Wellington Sunday XI beat Taunton and District Sunday League Division A leaders Bridgwater on their own patch last weekend and secured at least the runners up spot and have a slim chance of winning the title too following this five wicket win on Bank Holiday Sunday.
Bridgwater opted to bat first and were in trouble first up as George Hooper and Lewis Sparks formed an excellent opening attack for Wellington as the home side were reduced to 19-3 with both bowling with pace and accuracy.
This was continued by Jack Beal whose left arm over angle caused issues; one player who had no issues was Barrett who cracked 83 for Bridgwater and this was a class knock.
Spin in the form of Ben Evett took 4-34 in seven very good overs and Arron Campbell with 1-11 in seven overs of his own worked through the rest of the Bridgwater line up and Lewis Sparks came back to end matters with 7.3 overs unused.
Wellington were quickly into their stride as Max Capaldi and Robin Davies blazed a trail to a 57 run opening stand as both took advantage of some wayward Bridgwater bowling.
Although both were trapped LBW the foundations for a Wellington win had been laid.
Scott Davey with 15 made a good contribution and Aks Latifi (39no) along with Alex Sparks ended matters with 11.3 overs left and saw Wellington collect a full 25 points.
The team are at Chard this coming weekend for their last game and a chance to go top of the pile is on offer.
