CAMERON Oliver’s four wickets helped Swindon 2nd pick up their first Division One victory of 2019 in the Wiltshire Cricket League with a 118-run success at home to Nationwide House.

Christy Millar (88) and Tomas Foreman (69) made valuable contributions with the bat as Swindon posted 255-8 off their 45 overs.

Roger Pettifer (50) started positively in the House reply, but only three other team-mates reached double figures as Oliver’s excellent haul of 4-55 curtailed the response at 137 all out.

Great Bedwyn are the early pace-setters and are now the only side still with a 100 per cent record after a 109-run victory at home to Beckington.

Robert Palmer (72) helped Bedwyn reach 268 before they were dismissed as Beckington’s Joe Weare took 5-40.

The Beckington reply never truly got going as they were all out for 159.

Avebury’s hopes of making it four wins from four were scuppered by Corsham 2nd, who inflicted a 48-run defeat.

Ben Da Costa hit 92 not out as Corsham set a total of 237-8, and Avebury could only muster 189 all out in reply despite the resilient efforts of Sam Underhill (63).

Marlborough made short work of chasing Chippenham 2nd’s 103 all out as they claimed a nine-wicket success.

Ben Head (57) and Nick Crabbe needed less than 25 overs to reach a winning 104-1.

Giles Williams hit 67 as Winsley successfully chased Malmesbury’s 131 all out to record a four-wicket win.

Williams was the backbone of Winsley’s 132-6 in reply.

Division Two

BOX bowler Stephen Hall took a magnificent seven wickets to set up a 79-run win away at Swindon NALGO.

Gerald Hayward (72) and Jordan Welsby (54no) helped Box to a total of 233-6 before Hall (7-32) restricted the reply to 154 all out despite 58 from NALGO opener Prashant Joshi.

Division Three

BRADFORD on Avon needed less than 21 overs to chase down Heytesbury & Sutton Veny’s 102 all out to claim a nine-wicket win, finishing on 104-1.

Lacock also made relatively short work of a low run chase as they won by five wickets at White Horse.

The hosts were dismissed for 112 and Lacock reached a winning 113-5 with more than eight overs to spare.

Division Four

WROUGHTON Wranglers made it five wins from five games this summer with an emphatic 140-run success at home to Corsham 3rd.

D Lawrence (63) and Mark McKeeking (61) made the chief contributions with the bat as Wroughton hit 196 all out.

Corsham never got going in reply and were skittled for just 56 inside 32 overs.

Joe Veacock took four wickets to help Melksham claim a 45-run win away at Nationwide House 2nd.

Matthew Hunt (57) led Melksham to a below-par 153 all out as Mason Thompson took 4-22 for House.

However, Veacock’s 4-13 had the hosts in disarray in their reply as opener Jack Harris (57) made more than half of his side’s total of 108 all out.

Frederick Walker’s five-wicket haul for Ramsbury inspired a 156-run win at Combe Down.

Ramsbury posted 231-9 as Walker hit 66, and he was then to the fore with the ball, taking 5-5 as Combe Down were skittled for 75 inside 22 overs in reply.

Division Five

JOE Dorgan’s unbeaten century ensured Erlestoke kept up their 100 per cent record, earning a five-wicket win at Purton 2nd.

Purton posted 226-8 but Dorgan (109no) produced a peerless innings to lead Erlestoke to a winning 231-5 with four overs to spare.

Division Six

BLUNSDON suffered their first defeat of the season, going down by eight wickets away at Trowbridge 3rd.

The visitors were bowled out for just 118 before James Taylor (54no) led a trouble-free run chase for Trowbridge as they needed only 22 overs to reach a winning 119-2.
