There had been better news for Timsbury earlier in the week when Timsbury reached the semi-finals of the Somerset Intermediate Cup with a 48 run win away to local rivals Midsomer Norton 2nd XI. It was a result that looked highly unlikely when the visitors plunged to 7-4 with less than two overs gone.

Timsbury 2nd XI were well beaten by Bristol Sri Lankans at home in the Bristol and District League Division 5. After electing to bat first Timsbury were dismissed for just 112. Adam Workman (24), Dan Hill (21) and skipper Ben Hosford (20) were the main contributors but the innings fell away badly at the end. Benura Umanga took 6-30 for the visitors. Hill took 2-16 for the home side but the Sri Lankans raced to a six wicket win in just over 16 overs.

There was better news for Timsbury 3rd XI who won by four wickets away to Midsomer Norton 3rd XI in the Bristol and District League Division 13. After being asked to bat first the home side made a solid start with Ian Lanning making 44 but a devastating spell of 4-8 from Ben Smith and tidy bowling from Martin Richards and Neil Hulford who both took 2-19 saw Midsomer Norton collapse to 112 all out. Matthew Edwards (3-23) and Lanning (2-31) then made it hard for the visitors but a fine knock of 54 not out from vice-captain Hulford saw Timsbury home.
