9:38am Thursday 5th September 2013 in Yate and Sodbury Sport
A FOUR-WICKET win at Congresbury on the final day was not enough for Winterbourne to clinch the Bristol and North Somerset title.
With the two sides above them – champions Chew Magna and Lansdown – also winning they had to settle for third place, finishing just five points off the top of the table.
Thomas Carter struck an unbeaten 139 off 125 balls as Winterbourne chased down their target of 240 with 28 balls to spare at Congresbury, who were earlier all out with George Ford taking 4-55.
Winterbourne seconds were able to celebrate, though, as they won the 2nd XI Bristol Somerset Division on win percentage, having finished level on points with Taunton.
Navin Nayak scored 113 in their total of 307-4 at home to Clevedon, and then took 3-24 as they bowled the visitors out for 261 for a 46-run win.
Frenchay stayed up by just four points in the Bristol Somerset Division despite suffering a 117-run defeat in their last game at Clevedon as Taunton also lost at Old Bristolians Westbury to be relegated.
Alex Stell took 5-58, but Clevedon racked up 266-9 with Wayne Kylander hitting 95 and Frenchay were bowled out for 149.
To complete a good day for the club, Frenchay took the 2nd XI Bristol and North Somerset title with a 144-run win over Congresbury.
Ian March struck 115 in their huge total of 330-5 before Ian McCormack claimed four wickets as the visitors were skittled for 186.
Thornbury triumphed over already-promoted Weston-super-Mare in Premier Two, but it was not enough to join them in the top tier next season as Taunton Deane beat Warminster to go up as champions.
Nick Willis-Stovold scored 59 in Thornbury’s total of 249-9 and they secured a 39-run win as skipper Richard Trotman took 4-21 to help bowl Weston out for 210.
