WELLINGTON Sunday XI made the trip to West Somerset League club Kilve last weekend as the Red and Blacks’ short 2020 season ended in glorious autumnal sunshine but with a 65-run loss, writes David Derrick.

Ben Evett took charge on the day and after losing the toss, Wellington fielded first. Kilve opened up with a 15-run first wicket stand ended when Ollie Hunt yorked home skipper C. Taylor.

R. Rock and Clemenson then frustrated the Wellington attack by adding 96 for the second wicket to take Kilve to 111-1 with about half their allocation of overs left.

However, spin did the Kilve middle order as Rob Moysey and Arron Campbell reduced them from 111-1 to 115-7 as they shared five wickets between them.

Ollie Hunt’s second spell got a second wicket for him first ball back and Des Campbell’s good caught and bowled effort ended the Kilve innings as they recovered to 159 all with eight balls going unused. J.Taylor Junior made 18 good late runs.

Wellington saw Ben Evett and Ian Hewson get double figures on the board before Evett was caught behind for ten and good Kilve bowling reduced matters to 51-6 with Tom Shannon’s 13 being the best offering.

Arron Campbell and Rob Moysey took the score to 93-6 before Moysey had to retire injured due to sustaining a leg injury having made 19no.

Campbell made the top score of 33 but was bowled and the Wellington innings was all over with Moysey unable to return, leaving David Derrick unbeaten having run out of partners.

Left arm spinner Calder with 2-7 in seven overs led the way for an economical home attack which never served up a lot to hit.
