BEDMINSTER Bashers continue their defence of Gloucestershire’s Vitality U19 T20 in partnership with Stuart Turner with a home clash against Winterbourne on Friday (5.30pm).
Max Tryfonos (54 retired), Max Trotman (37) and Matt Brewer (35) led the Bashers to an imposing 180-5 in their opening clash against OB Westbury who, in reply, were restricted to 84-6.
Bedminster will now be keen to make it two from two and remain clear at the top of the South division which also includes Twyford House and Golden Hill, last year’s beaten finalists who were formerly known as Bristol YMCA. These two sides meet at Twyford on Sunday (1pm).
Dumbleton, meanwhile, are the early pacesetters in the North division after holding their nerve for a two-run victory against Frocester.
Opener Ed Bragg (27) and Dan Holland (23) saw Dumbleton to a challenge of 139-8, Nathan Rose Innes capturing 4-15, before Frocester came up just short at 137-6, Harold Senior top scoring on 41 while Fraser Loveday claimed 2-16.
Completing this group are Cheltenham and Thornbury who host Frocester on Sunday (10am).
Four sides are also taking part in a Development division: Bradley Stoke, Knowle, Stoke Bishop and Stroud.
