The 1st XI travelled to Minehead and the home side chose to bat first. Uncharacteristically 3 catches were dropped allowing Minehead openers to move to 94 however normal service was resummed and home side soon found themselve 100-4. Another lull for Perrott and the hosts moved on to 182-7 but 3 quick wickets for Jake Symes and Minehead were 185 all out. 4 -46 from skipper Whorlow 3-17 Jake Symes and 2-19 from Lorraine Szczepanski. Whorlow then dug in for a well crafted 49 and was well supported by Nick Taylor 31,Jake Symes 26 and Troy Johnson 20. There was a wobble just at the end but Giddings saw Perrott home and 19 points.
Weston Super Mare collecting 22 at North Petherton meant Perrott had to settle for runners up spot and with 16 wins from 18 games.
2nd XI starting in 3rd place were playing 4th placed Uphill Castle 2's with the winner likely to be promoted with the league indicating 3 promotion places.
Bowling first Perrott restricted the early batsman although at 148-3 Uphill looked ready to open up and set a challenging total.However more tight bowling and fielding meant they were restricted to 185-8 in 45 overs.2 wickets each for Mark Downing,Tommy Stewart and Rick Hyett. Jason Bradley lead the Perrott reply with 67, fellow opener Jess Meaker continued his good form with 48 and with 24NO from George Johnson and Tommy Stewart's 19 meant Perrott were home and dry in the 32nd over losing just 3 wickets and securing the 3rd promotion spot.
Just a reminder the club host Dorset CCC v Cornwall CCC this Sunday 13th August until Tuesday 15th August.
Play starts at 11.00 daily, admission is free and plenty of car parking available.
Saturday turned out to be 'not a good day at the office' as all three Perrott sides recorded losses.
A changed 1st XI hosted Minehead and although having them 41-3 early on dropped catches and poor fielding cost Perrott dearly as the visitors went on to make 192 -9.
In reply only Nick Taylor showed the concentration required on a bowler friendly wicket making 45 and Jonny Ireland a steady 22 not out but alas it wasn't enough to maintain the unbeaten run as Perrott folded at 128 all out.
The 2nd XI had a long afternoon in the field at Uphill Castle as the home side amassed 271-6 pick on the bowlers was Jo Hawkins 3-68. Perrott's reply never got up with the required run rate and the highlight of the day for the club was 13 year old Joseph Eckland's 50 not out on his 2nd XI debut. George Johnson scored 41 but Perrott were all out for 188 well short of victory.
There was another long afternoon for the 3rd XI as Taunton St Andrews 4th's scored 277 - 4, George Bromfield taking 2-27. In reply Jonny Hopper continued his good form with 58 and Finlay Hayton 21 as Perrott finished on 154 -7
So a day to forget and move on to next week.
