Men’s weekend round-up: June 25th

Wins for the 3s and 4s, and the first Mother-Son teammates in TCCs history! 


The 3s and 4s both kept their promotion ambitions on track with strong wins, backed up by some great individual performances. 


The 3s hosted Bishopston at Tockington, and racked up 269 thanks to a ton from skipper David Hammond, backed up by 60 from Mike Mosses. 


In response, Bishopston lost early wickets to Tane Coomans, before Om Reddy stole the show taking 6-40 with his leggies to set up a comfortable win for Thorns. 


The 3s sit 3rd in the league with a chance to gain on the top two (who play each other) away at Hampset on Saturday. 


The 4s stayed in second courtesy of another strong batting performance away at Barrow Gurney.  The game also featured Jo Littlejohn and Toby Littlejohn becoming the first Mother-Son combo to play together for TCC!


A first adult hundred for Logan Bowden, supported by 60 from Harrison Wheeler set a great platform, and some late hitting from Ollie Nash took the score above 270.


In response Barrow Gurney made it to 250, however were never really in the hunt as Thorns racked up a strong win. Hugo Slade was pick of the bowlers with 2-35.


Elsewhere, the 1s made the long trip to Potterne, however came second against their high flying opponents.

Batting first, Potterne racked up 390 in their 50 overs - not insurmountable at the tiny ground, but a big task for Thornbury to chase. 


In response, regular wickets left Thorns searching for maximum batting points as opposed to the win, and this was achieved thanks to 50s from Praneel Choughule and Tom Bradley.  


The 1s took 9 points away which ultimately is a 'good loss', and will hope to go better at home to Chippenham this week. 


The 2s were left ruing what might have been after a 10 run home loss to Cheltenham Civil Service. 


CSS added 80 in the first 10 overs, however Thornbury came back strong and managed to bowl them out for 212.  Kian Coomans was the pick of the bowlers with 3 wickets on his 2nd team debut. 


In response, 80 from Luke Davis and 60 from Vishal Mamgai put Thornbury in sight of victory with a 140 run stand.  However with 60 needed from the final 10 overs, and the pitch becoming increasingly tired, CSS took control with a couple of wickets, and despite their best efforts Thorns couldn't pick the rate up and came up short. 


It was an improved performance, and the 2s will look to learn from it and come back stronger away to Westbury on Seven this week.
