CHIPPING Sodbury clinched the Bristol Midweek League title with a 98-run play-off victory at home to Knowle.

Sodbury rattled up 174-7 after losing the toss, Jiwanjot Singh leading the charge with 47 from 39 balls.

And the home side then put the squeeze on in the field through player-of-the-match Dan Brown, who took 2-13 from four overs of spin, and Ollie Louch who captured 3-7 to wrap up an excellent season for Sodbury.

The first XI finished third in their first year back in WEPL’s Gloucestershire division, and the 2nds were promoted as runners-up from Division Four in the Gloucestershire County League after closing out an 85-run win on the final day at Kingsholm, Damien Bouwer going through 500 runs for the summer with 47 while Brown took 4-13.
