Kingsholm into last four of Stuart Canvas Glo’shire Trophy

DAN Jones and Oakleigh Roe took three wickets apiece to pave the way for Kingsholm to overcome Bedminster and reach the semi-finals of the Stuart Canvas Gloucestershire Trophy.

Bedminster were bowled out for 188, Dan Turner top scoring on 52, before Kingsholm eased through by six wickets with almost ten overs to spare, Will Lowe (46) and Andy Edwards (31 not) top scoring.

Kingsholm will now be home to Frenchay on Sunday when Langford, who were given a walk-over against Westbury-on-Severn, will entertain Bristol Pakistanis who last weekend overcame Chipping Sodbury by 40 runs, Jawad Khan hitting 40 and Shayan Irfan grabbing 4-29.

BEDMINSTER are through to the semi-finals of the Stuart Canvas Gloucestershire Cup thank to a last-over two-wicket home win over local rivals Bristol.

Opener Nic Halstead Cleak’s 100 off 115 (11 fours, one six) helped Bristol reach 227-3 before Bedminster timed their reply to perfection, Jon Conolly (48) and Steve Snell (47) top scoring before Muhammad Nasir (34 not) took control in the final overs.

Bedminster will now be away to Stroud with Bishopston, who had a walkover against Charlton Kings, entertaining Hatherley & Reddings.
