Perrott made it through to the quarter final of the Baker Cup following their second visit to Wellington in 3 days and a second victory.
Choosing to bat first Perrott totalled 164-6 in their 20 overs. The basis of the innings was built on an 85 run 2nd wicket partnership in just 8 over between Troy Johnson & Alex Eckland. Troy making 57, Alex Eckalnd 34 and 25 not out from Craig Jones at the death the main contributors.
The home side reply stuttered at 13-2 as openers Ireland and Eckland picked up a wicket each early. Lorraine Szczpanski then took control with a return of 4-24 and Max Dicker's 2 wickets meant Wellington finished on 112 all out.
Perrott will travel to paly Taunton Cricket Club in the quarter final on 5th June.
Perrott picked another 3 wins from 4 games over the weekend.
The 1st XI travelled to Wellington and unsurprisingly after Friday's monsoon found a damp pitch. Having been inserted the day belonged to Troy Johnson from there on in.
As Perrott totalled 190-3 in a reduced game of 37 overs Troy ended on 130 not out, presumably thinking he was playing at home in Wellington New Zealand ! Just when Wellington were getting going in their reply Troy took 3-15 and was very well supported by Lorraine Szczepanski with 3-27 and the home side totalled 127 all out and a 63 run victory for Perrott.
The unbeaten 2nd XI hosted Taunton St Andrews 3's on a relatively dry wicket. St Andrews got off to a flyer but were reeled back in over the innings and it was down to youth of Max Dicker 3-19 and Brandon Moy 2-20 to do the damage and the visitors finished on 155-8. In form George Johnson lead the reply from the front with 72 NO,Stu Payne 44 and Tommy Stewart weighing in with 19 NO at the end Perrott passed the total with 10 overs to spare and only 3 wickets down.
Sadly the 3rd XI game at West & Middle Chinnock was lost to the weather.
Little detail has emerged from the Sunday Mid Wessex game against Cranmore other than Perrott were chasing 280 but failed and registered a loss.
Mean while the U13's made the trip to Wembdon's new ground and like the 1st XI a couple weeks ago came away with a victory. Wembdon batting first had no answer to the accurate Perrott bowling and were skittled out for 39. Perrott's youngster knocked off the runs in 13 overs for the loss of 2 wickets.
Two local league derbies last Saturday with the 1st XI playing Chard and the 2nd XI making the short trip to Crewkerne 1st . Meanwhile the 3rd XI had a relatively quick trip over to Long Sutton.
Perrott 1st XI chose to take first knock against Chard and amassed 297-7. Alex Eckland leading the way with 79 NO and well supported by Troy Johnson 66 and Josh M-J 24 NO and significant total from extras of 47.
Chard’s reply started badly with a wicket first ball as Hawes removed Glentworth. Wickets continued to fall a regular intervals and at 185 -5 effectively the game was over. Only a sixth wicket partnership of 72 enabled Chard to a respectable total of 257-6 lead by Jon Dalwood’s 110 NO but 40 short of victory.
Perrott’s 2’s had a hum dinger at Crewkerne as the initative swayed back and forth between the teams with Perrott finally coming out on top when Phil ‘Mundog’ Munden strolled to the crease to hit the last ball of the game for 2 runs and secure a 2 wicket victory. Batting first Crewkerne had totalled 227-6 with Tommy Stewart pick of the bowlers 3-41 whilst Phil Munden bowled a miserly 9 overs for 14, a few other bowlers went for many !
Perrott’s innings was anchored by Nick Taylor with 68 and ‘Man of the Match’ Tommy Stewart 64, a rapid 32 from Pete Ireland took things to the final over and ‘Mundogs’ heroics.
3rd XI opened their season at Long Sutton with a mixture of youth and experience. Batting first Perrott made 195-7 from 40 overs with useful knocks from Jonny Hopper 55, Jesse Meaker 46 and a quick fire 30 from Luke Jackson.
The experienced Long Sutton early order eased to victory for 1 wicket down in 32 overs. However special mention to three U13 debutants for Perrott Lewis Brookes, Barney French and Alec Payne who all showed much promise for future.They were well supported by 13 year old Joseph Eckland and 14 year old Jesse Meaker !
Great News...We are pleased to able to confirm that Somerset will be bringing their 1st XI to North Perrott to play Dorset in a T20 warm up fixture on Tuesday 11th July with a 5.00 start.
