Week 11 West of England Premier League review

FIFTEEN-year-old Ellis Sabbagh-Holt finished with memorable figures of 7-18 from 9.2 overs as Cirencester rushed out Bourton Vale for only 94 in WEPL’s Gloucestershire division.

The off spinner, who made his senior debut for Ciren fourths at the start of last season, came into the attack with Bourton Vale at 61-2 after winning the toss.

And Sabbagh-Holt made an instance impact with his accurate variations, sparking a dramatic collapse with the third best figures throughout WEPL this summer, before Ciren romped to a six-wicket home win and moved up a place to third.

Leaders Painswick were 13-run victors at Gloucester, Rogan Wolhuter top scoring on 90 but Charlton Kings, second at the start of the day, suffered a 96-run reverse at home to Frocester 2nds, Angus Catto capturing 5-41.

Nipun Haggalla thumped 93 off only 64 (11 fours, five sixes) in Dumbleton’s 179-run home hammering of lowly Rockhampton. And Alex Oliver hammered 93 from 50 (11 fours, five sixes) to help pave the way for Tewkesbury to see off Apperley by 87 runs.

Thornbury, meanwhile, trumped Taunton Deane  by 139 runs to boost their hopes of staying up in Premier One, Gloucestershire T20 captain Jack Taylor cracking 72 and tidying up the tail with a return of 3-17.

Bedminster were even more convincing victors, dispatching Bridgwater by nine wickets, captain Sai Kamuni’s 121 coming off just 67 balls (17 fours, six sixes).

Frocester, the Premier Two Glos/Wilts pacesetters, trumped Corse & Staunton by 84 runs, Uzi Qureshi top scoring on 132 (16 fours, three sixes) and Harry Senior taking 4-45.

Hatherley & Reddings gave themselves breathing space at the other end of the table with a 118-run success at drop zone rivals Stroud,  captain Tom Hage smashing 154 (15 fours, eight sixes) and Max Kelly returning 4-25 from ten.

Cheltenham fell two runs short at Corsham while Marshfield succumbed by 113 runs at Goatacre.

Unbeaten Premier Two Bristol/Somerset leaders Bristol overcame Bishopston by seven wickets, Josh Shaw and Dan Jones taking four wickets apiece.

Gloucestershire’s Ian Cockbain’s 113 off 96 set Downend on the way to a 113-run home victory against Golden Hill while Winterbourne went down by 137 runs at home to Weston-super-Mare.

In Bristol & North Somerset, Bristol 2nds hunted down a target of 266 at lowly Bradley Stoke for the loss of only one wicket, opener Shazil Mustafa leading the charge with an unbeaten 135  off 140 (20 fours and a six).

High flying Knowle lost ground with a 19-run home reverse against local rivals Brislington for whom captain Will Thomas hit a gutsy 91 ahead of James Riley bagging 7-20.

Twyford House slipped to a 12-run defeat at Keynsham while there were also defeats for OB Westbury and Bedminster 2nds, against Bath 2nds and Congresbury, respectively.
