THORNBURY secured a ten-wicket win at bottom side Glastonbury in the WEPL Premier Two Division on Saturday.

Glastonbury decided to bat and were all out for 175 in the 47th over. Wickets were shared around with Luke Franklin taking 1-29, Richard Trotman 2-22, Tom Shrewsbury 2-32, Sayeem Waliullah 2-37 and Luke Davis 2-35.

During tea the heavens opened, which meant the game was shortened and Thornbury were set a revised target of 120 to win from 34 overs.

The openers got the runs in style, with Chris Budd scoring 50 and Marc Lezar 68.

Thornbury seconds beat Ashcott and Shapwick and replaced them at the top of Premier Two 2nd XI.

Opening batsmen Marcus Wormwell and Kyp Bridgen got Thornbury off to a flyer as runs came easily off the bat.

Wormwell was first to go, caught on 20, and Bridgen followed soon after with 15.

With James Tunnicliffe running himself out for nought, Sam Summerfield and Danny Slade started to build an innings.

Slade ended up with 76, being stumped going for another big one.

With Colin Blick offering an aggressive supporting role, Summerfield started to hit boundaries and reached 50 in no time at all.

Summerfield finished with 88 as Thornbury scored 276-9.

Ashcott fell 65 runs short when bowled all out for 211.

The pick of the bowlers were Harry Wormwell and Greg Mallitte, who picked up three wickets each, while Tunnicliffe picked up a pair, one of them caught behind by Summerfield one handed at full stretch.

Thornbury thirds are pulling away at the top of the Bristol and District League Seventh Division after they won at Pak Bristolians.

The very youthful home side achieved 136-8, with wickets going to Kapil Agarwal (2), Luke Messer with another 4-33 for Alex Allen, including a family hat-trick, with his father Mark Allen catching three of his wickets.

Simon Weeks (20), Ed Webb (48), Mark Allen (28*), Jon Oakey (13*) helped Thornbury get the runs in the 22nd over for the loss of just two wickets.
