Perrott 1sts travelled to Midsomer Norton for probably the first game ever between the clubs. Put in to bat Perrott were once again soon in trouble as batsman came and went and the scoreboard was soon showing 39- 7. Thankfully Sam Rowswell (39 ) and Josh Marshall James ( 40 NO ) were able to give Perrott something to bowl at as they were all out for 130. Josh then bowled a lively spell taking 3-36 supported by Stacy Hawes 2-37 as the home side found themselves at 47-5. However Perrott were unable to keep up the pressure although Lorraine Szczepanski took 2-13 late on to give some hope but the home side limped over the line 131-8. The visitors will have to look at plan C given plan B is not working..........
2nd XI hosted Lympsham & Belevedere and they to were in trouble at 47-4 however a 80 run partnership between Max Dicker (69) and Simon Gerring (28) took them to 127-5. A quick fire 38 from Lewis Hunt took Perrott to 188 all out well short of a par score.The visitors batting steadily took no chances as a wicket fell at 49 and then 128 and comfortably won losing just the 2 wickets.
Finally some good news as the thirds playing at home to Taunton Deane 5ths. Batting first Perrott’s Jack Male scored 102 with support from Jack Hawker 49 and Jez French 31as they posted 241-6. Perrott bowlers were lead by skipper George Preston 4-26 and Phil Munden 4-33 bowled the visitors out for 150. Perrott remain unbeaten and top of the league.
