Doctors lost to Quantock Stags by 12 runs


Stags won the toss and elected to bat on an overcast but warm evening. Their early batting was held in check by our opening bowlers Will Bere who finished his 4 overs with 1-18, and Sedge who took 2-25.Then arrived the Dickens lads, James and Will, who now hit the ball harder than they used to and both retired with 30 to their name. Jeremy Budd clean bowled the dangerous James Coates for 2 and finished with 2-12 off his tidy bowling.Reduction of the overs to 17 failed to dent the total of 116 that Stags amassed.

†† In reply Rob Adcock was bowled for 1 while Keith Powell grafted 14, and Chris Cullum struck a fine 33 off just 16 balls including 7 4ís. Matt Bere and John Ogle added a few in minimal light, but the youthful eyes of Will Bere and some fine straight drives for 17 helped us to a total of 104 which alas was just not quite enough but in the deteriorating conditions was quite creditable.
