CHIPPING Sodbury celebrated putting out four senior sides on Saturday by completing an excellent four match win.

The first team led the way with a hard-earned 22-run success away to local rivals Hawkesbury Upton in the Gloucestershire County League.

Mason Poole's unbeaten 61 helped steer Sodbury to a total of 184-8 with Tom Febry (29), Jake Reed (25) and Josh Morris (27) all making important contributions.

Hawkesbury, in reply, were in good shape at 135-5 but that was the signal for Sodbury skipper Jamie Rendell to take centre stage, finishing with 4-24 from 7.2 overs of spin to complete his side's first win of this shortened campaign after a wash out the previous week at Tetbury.

Sodbury B, meanwhile, dispatched Hambrook 2nds by ten wickets in their opening Pod L clash in the Bristol & District League.

The visitors were dismissed for just 75, Ed Holden (3-13) leading the way before Jim Davis (39) and Lee Walters (30) completed a convincing victory.

Sodbury Extra As also made the most of home advantage to edge Chippenham 5ths by 26 runs.

Jake Kirkham dominated this friendly with an unbeaten 116 (retired), hammering 15 fours and two sixes as he helped his side reach 183-6.

In reply, Chippenham's charge was held up by Ed Lovell who finished with four wickets.

This match was also notable for a head-to-head between Tony and Mike Garton.

Dad Tony was, in fact, caught off the bowling of his son, a long-time Sodbury player before moving up the M4, but had the last laugh by finishing on the winning side.

Sodbury Extra Bs completed a club cleansweep with an 85-run win away to a young and enthusiastic Thornbury 5ths line-up at Oldbury-on-Severn.

Half centuries from Neil Barrett, Naomi Forecast and Dan Jenkins - his first for the seniors - saw the visitors reach 249-4 ahead of Thornbury being restricted to a reply of 164, Steve Wyres unbeaten on 54 as Steve Febry claimed 4-15 and fellow left-arm spinner Andy Shield 2-13 including his first caught-and-bowled in the new millenium.
