Round-up of the latest cup action across the county

BISHOPSTON will on Sunday face local rivals Golden Hill (2pm) in the latest WEPL qualifier for the ECB National Club Twenty20.

The match is a straight play-off for a place in the next round following Keynsham’s withdrawal.

Hatherley & Reddings will now host Tewkesbury and Frocester on May 28 when Painswick will be home to Cheltenham and Gloucester, and Charlton Kings welcome Cirencester and Stroud.

Thornbury, on the same day, face a trip to Weston-super-Mare where Congresbury complete the lineup.

BRISTOL could not follow up a ten-run WEPL victory away to Taunton Deane, losing out by two wickets in another low scoring thriller 24 hours later, this time in the ECB National Club Championship.

Jack Shelley was the only Bristol player to reach double figures in a total of 88 after winning the toss, hitting 38.

But this time Deane were equal to the challenge, opener Luke Williams top scoring on 51 as victory was secured in the 20th over.

Bedminster are also out following a seven-wicket home reverse against St Cross Symondians while Golden Hill’s run came to an end at Bath who eased through by five wickets despite Harry Thomas cracking an unbeaten 63 while skipper Daz Ahmed contributed 57.

MARSHFIELD overcame visitors Winterbourne by 35 runs, securing a Gloucestershire group semi-final trip to Kingsholm in the Voneus Village Cup on Sunday.

The home side totalled 203-8 before dismissing Winterbourne for 168, wicketkeeper Mike Green top scoring on 46.

Apperley have withdrawn from the other semi-final, handing Painswick free passage.

Holders Dumbleton, meanwhile, are away on Sunday to Quatt in the Worcestershire group semi-finals, and Aston Ingham face a trip to Colwall in the Herefordshire & Powys pool.
