Westgate fall valiantly in stunning Coniston sunshine

Jacob Vaughan's first game as captain...

Coniston beat Westgate A by five wickets in the first return game of the season in the Lake District. In the stunning weather at a ground not far from Lake Coniston and the Old Man, stand-in captain Jacob Vaughan won the toss and elected to bat.

Openers Chris Carter (11) and Jacob Vaughan (7) got Westgate off to a fairly good start, putting on nineteen for the first wicket before Carter was bowled by spinner D.Shaw (2-21). Vaughan followed him soon after when he was caught off Shaw's bowling by Auty. Therefore there were two new batsmen at the crease in Elliot Chapman (25) and Dakshina De Silva (2). Chapman batted particularly well, hitting a four and two sixes. Following De Silva's dismissal, Sam Conroy (27) joined Chapman at the crease, and the youngster played some crafty shots including three fours and a six. Hughes (0) and Green (4) were dismissed cheaply before debutant Dom Griffiths (20), who joined the club from Bolton Le Sands earlier in the week, joined Conroy at the crease. The 22 year-old built a good looking partnership of 35 runs with Conroy, playing four brilliant shots to the boundary. The pair took the score to 104-7 from 32 overs, and there was only another seven runs added to the total following Conroy's dismissal. Westgate were therefore all out for 111 from 32 overs, which was a significant improvement on the last game's total of 50 at Ambleside, as R.Warne (4-6), T.Simpson (3-33), D.Shaw (2-21) and M.Burton (1-24) all took wickets for Coniston.

Coniston openers R.Warne (30) and Bob Simpson (21) got the hosts off to an excellent start in their innings, putting on 50 for the first wicket. Their partnership was broken in the ninth over when Dom Griffiths (2-34) bowled Warne to take his first Westgate wicket. Coniston then oversaw a mini-collapse with the score going from 50-1 to 59-4 in the space of just two overs. Griffiths had another wicket in his next over, and captain Vaughan (3-23) had an impressive double-wicket maiden to put Westgate very much in the game. The next wicket came three overs later as Vaughan dismissed Coniston wicket keeper P.Dodd (0) for a duck. Following this, S.Auty (36*) and A.Warne (18*) took the chances they were given, getting the hosts over the line with an impressive partnership of 41 runs to take the 15 points.

Westgate's second XI are in action again on Friday as they face local-rivals Bare in a T20 at Cross Hill Park.
