Doctors lost to Cannington by 12 runs


    The weather was set fair for a good encounter; not a drop of rain seems to have fallen for weeks, and the outfield was brown and hard; the track however still had a rabbit-hole to be coped with from last week.

  Cannington batted first and were soon piling on the runs. Charles Macadam bowled tidily and finally skittled Nick Cater who was poised on 24; at the other end Sedge Seymour accounted for Russel Windows, their big-hitter on loan from Wembdon, with one that turned nicely, and followed it with the wicket of Chris Birch, well held by the magic hands of Graham Ferguson at wide mid-wicket. William King was looking set until accounted for by a fine delivery from by Tom Adcock from the Pavilion end. Their skipper Adam Caswell batted gradually, accumulating 30, and they closed on an impressive 148.

  Doctors began unimpressively with John Ogle holing out at long-on for just 5, and Rob Adcock despite hanging around, only managing a couple of singles. Georgie Adcock added a cameo 7 before Mat Bere and Graham Ferguson came together with some class hitting, reaching 28 and 30 not out respectively. Tom Guppy rattled up 11, at which point the innings seemed to lose momentum, despite an opening 6 over mid-wicket by Tom Adcock who went on to accumulate 25, and Charles Macadam who was run out for 7. Bere and Ferguson returned for a final flourish at the end, but it was too late.

  After the match it was decided that we would put forward a challenge to Hinkley Point to raise a team to play us either at the end of Summer or next Spring.
