Timsbury Thirds XI too strong for opponents
Timsbury First XI had a weekend to forget after they were beaten by 7 wickets at home to their perennial nemesis Frenchay in the Bristol and District League Senior Division.
After batting first they lost key batsmen Mark Sage and Kev Sibley with just one on the board and from there they never recovered. Twenty extras were the main contributors to their meagre total of sixty with Jack Williams the only batsmen to reach double figures with 14. Chare Smith bowled impressively for the visitors to finish with 6-25 with Alex Stell taking 3-11. Frenchay took just under 12 overs to knock off the runs for the loss of three wickets. Sam Hoddinott took 2-8 for the home side.
Timsbury’s second eleven had a frustrating afternoon away to Frenchay 2nd XI with rain causing the match to be abandoned with the visitors in sight of victory in the Bristol and District League Division 5. Batting first the home side totalled 180-8 from their 40 overs with David Bromley top scoring with 52. There were two wickets each for Neil Hucker, Freddie Hosford, Dan Hill and Steve Clothier. Rain then gave Timsbury a revised target of 104 from 23 overs and they were sailing along at 93-2 after 15 overs when the rain returned. Adam Workman continued his good form with 39.
Timsbury 3rd XI were much too strong for a young Thornbury 4th XI winning at home by 187 runs in the Bristol and District League Division 13. After being asked to bat first the home side finished their 40 overs on 274-4. Josh Tucker led the way with 78, captain Laurie Jones was one short of his half-century while James Rawlings was undefeated on 43 and Neil Hulford was 37 not out. There was a brace of wickets for Robbie Haigh, Liam Hosford and Hulford as the visitors were dismissed for 87 to elevate the third XI to second place in the table. M Tucker
