Congratulations to North Perrott U13's who have won the Taunton & District U13 league. The team won all eight of their games played with 2 games conceded by the opposition.

Team manager Mark Payne was naturally ecstatic in his season summary '

This is a fabulous testament to each and every player who has turned out for the U13s. It has genuinely been the case that every single player has at some point contributed significantly to the victories. I am really proud that we have achieved this whilst at the same time ensuring that everyone has had an opportunity to be involved - and that a significant number of the players are not 13 and will still be able to play U13 cricket next year. Most importantly it seems that you have enjoyed playing and the excellent team spirit displayed in the final match was testament to that.

Mark also thanked the coaches who worked with the team both over the winter and on Fridays Jez French, Andy Draper and John Hammond..

Perrott remain 2nd in WEPL Somerset after a 76 run victory at Chard. Choosing to bat first Perrott put on 62 for 1st wicket of which George Retter made 49 and they remained in control for the rest of the game. Troy Johnson hit a classy 88 and was supported by Alex Eckland with 50 as Perrott made 246-8. When Josh M-J bowled Chard opener Johnson with his first ball the noose tighened. All Perrott's bowlers bowled tight lines and were well supported by excellent ground fielding as Chard struggled all the way. Gordy Whorlow took 4-21 whilst Troy Johnson  and Jake Symes shared  2 wickets each and Chard finished on 170 all out. 

The 2nd XI also had a local derby against table topping Crewkerne 1st's.Perrott batting first put up a respectable 241-4 lead by Stu Payne with 88 NO and good knocks from George Johnson 46,Jess Meaker 36,Max Dicker 36 and 20 from Chris Boundy.Crewkerne batted steadily in reply and only had a slight wobble when moving from 80-0 to 89-2. Thereafter Sam Rowswell lead the reply with 98. The game did go to the last over with 3 required but a 4 off the first ball saw the visitors home by 5 wickets.

3rd XI hosted Long Sutton at Merriott and endured a long afternoon  as the visitors made 223-3. At 35-9 Perrott were 'up a creek' but not without a paddle as captain Adam Bromfield and number 11 Harry Morrisey set about saving the day. Adam was out having scored 69 leaving Harry on 12 NO and Perrott made 114. However the 8 points collected were enough to move them of the bottom of the league.
