Seconds secure place in second division with win over relegated-Trimpell
A good achievement for a young side
On a sunny day at Trimpell, the hosts won the toss an elected to bat knowing that only a win could save them from relegation. They started well with A Churton (40) and S Beniston (10) taking the score to 52-1 off just 14 overs. The introduction of the evergreen S Gani (8-3-14-5) and 'The Silver Panther' C Atkinson (7.5-0-22-4) put a stop to the run fest and reduced the home side to just 79 off 28 overs with a superb display of ball control.
In reply Westgate's second string were soon in trouble at 38-4 after 18 overs which, to be frank, had all come from R Cope (12-6-15-5)! Cope's final wicket brought together skipper D Hannigan (11) and the experienced D Hughes (20) who between them accelerated the scoring to 55 before Hannigan played into his own stumps from the bowling of S Beniston (9.5-0-30-1). The visitors were now just 25 runs away from victory and a combination of Hughes, cool dude R Green (6) and match winner S Conroy (5no) victory was assured.
