Bourton Vale produced a convincing win by 6 wickets away to bottom-placed Apperley last weekend in their West Of England Gloucestershire Division match.

The hosts batted first and Tom Hayward and Lloyd Griffiths carried their team to an overall score of 232all out, scoring 53 and 61 runs respectively.

But Bourton proved too strong, with skipper Charlie Garratt providing 80 runs for his team and decent contributions from James Vlaeminck and Oliver Lockey along the way meaning that they breezed to victory, finishing the day with a total of 233/4.

In the same division, Cirencester climbed one place in the league with their 190 run thrashing over Rockhampton at The Park.

The hosts batted first, with Jono Jamieson-Black’s huge score of 112 runs carrying his team to a total of 278/7, setting a considerable target for 9th placed Rockhampton to chase.

But the away side’s batting never really got going, with man of the moment Jamieson-Black supplying his team with 3 wickets to get Rockhampton all out for just 88 runs.

Second place Dumbleton lost ground at the top of the table after suffering defeat to visitors Charlton Kings by 2 wickets.

Rupert Salmon’s 90 runs weren’t enough to provide Dumbleton with the win, as Ollie Horne’s tremendous 5 wickets helped restrict the hosts to only 224 runs in their 50 overs.

Charlton Kings’ skipper Liam Brignull scored 121 runs off only 135 balls to steer his team to victory, closing the gap on 4th place rivals Gloucester.

Dumbleton now turn their attentions to the Village Cup this weekend, when they face Milford Hall at home.
