Sedgemoor Unison lost to Doctors by 50 runs


Doctors    173 for 2


Unison     123 for 6


  Doctors were forced to treat the opening spells of Kevin Chorley (1-15) and Duncan Harvey with circumspection but once established on a dry, true Wembdon wicket Adrian Fisher and Graham Fergusson made hay against some wayward change bowling in a classy and very rapid stand of 60 for the second wicket.  When both retired on 40 not out Unison’s below strength bowling attack took further punishment from Doctors’ leading run scorer Andrew Paisley who battered the leg side boundary and played the shot of the day with a classical off drive.  Quinton Button took a good steepling catch off Neil Anderson (1-29) to dismiss the dangerous Wayne Pither but Paisley (48 n.o.) ensured a formidable total.


  Mike Smart (1-28) ended an enterprising opening stand of 25 when he caught and bowled Tim Mander (12) but Button and Peter Blake took the total to 46 before Button (20) succumbed to the pressure exerted by Robert Seymour (1-15) and was bowled attempting an over-ambitious drive.  Thereafter Blake (31 n.o.) was the lone hero as Charles Macadam (2-23) and Peter Reed (1-19) profited from the batsmen’s need to score quickly.  Fergusson assisted with two quality stumpings and Pither (1-12) was too good for the late order batsmen.
