A FINE all-round performance from Rob Driver saw Burnham to an impressive victory over Weston on Saturday.

Batting first, Weston posted a challenging 201 with Matt Kearsey hitting 56, Matt Blamire 33 and Tom Dancey 35.

Pick of the Burnham bowlers was Driver, who took 4-46 off nine overs, while Andy Birkett’s 2-17 off nine kept the runs in check.

Burnham’s reply was assured with Pete Harris (28) and Dave Worthington (18) laying a solid foundation to the innings.

When they were dismissed, Rob Driver and Brad House took up the run chase and put together a match-winning stand which took Burnham to the brink of victory.

House was eventually out for 62 but Driver was still there on 64 as his side crossed the winning line.

The victory puts Burnham in clear third place and they bring their successful season to a close at fourth-placed Long Sutton on Saturday.

Leigh’s reply was emphatic as openers Steve Phelps (30no) and B. Gould (33no) coasted to victory.

Burnham 2nds close their season on Saturday at home to Wedmore.
