LYMPSHAM 2nd XI ensured a second place finish in Division 9NW of the Somerset Cricket League, with a five-wicket victory over Lydford on Saturday.

S. Bruce (66no) and R. Simpson (57) led the Lympsham charge, as they chased down 190 in comfortable fashion.

Earlier, S. Bailey (4-23) had been the pick of the bowlers to dismiss Lydford for below 200, before the batsmen got to work.

In Division 9SE, Wedmore 2nd XI’s season ended on a low note with a six-wicket defeat to Broadway & Horton.

Wedmore 1st XI first team suffered a similar fate in Division 3, slumping to a six-wicket reverse against Wincanton.

A. Cook (38) and Phil Patch (23) top scored for Wedmore in a total of 102 all out, leaving Wincanton with a straight forward chase.

N. Emery (2-28) claimed two wickets for Wedmore, but it wasn’t enough to change the course.

In Division 5, East Huntspill 2nd XI signed off the season with a 110-run victory over Cheddar II.

R. Pomeroy (44) and M. Crook (32) starred with the bat as East were all out for 197, before A. Penwill (3-12), I. Phillips (3-15) and K. Stamp (3-27) joined forces to bowl Cheddar out for just 87.
