CRICKET: St Gluvias pick-up another 60 points
IT was another top weekend for St Gluvias as all three of their teams in the Cornwall Cricket League recorded wins on Saturday.
This matched the previous week when all the sides at the cricket club based in Penryn were victorious in their games.
The first team travelled to St Just where they played their second team. St Gluvias skipper Jon Udy won the toss and elected to field first in the Division Two West match.
Proceedings started well for the visitors as opening bowler Andrew Julian grabbed the wickets of the top three batsmen of St Just.
Josh McKenna was given out LBW for 16 runs before Jim McKenna was caught by Julian’s brother Matt for 21.
Terry Williams was the next man to go as Udy took a catch off Julian’s bowling after the number three batsman had scored 20.
Then it became the turn of Richard Kellow to mop up some wickets with his leg spinners. The all-rounder picked up figures of four for 32 off 11 overs as St Gluvias went on to bowl St Just out 138 with 5.3 overs to spare. Julian finished with figures of three for 38.
Early in roads were made in the visitor’s innings with Jake Preston and Shaun Semmens both departing for just one run each.
Udy and Kellow got the score pointing in the right direction though with the captain scoring 40 before being caught off Thomas Pascoe’s bowling.
Kellow scored 39 before getting caught by Williams off Damon Fillery’s bowling.
This left Josh Kelly to take the team over the line as he scored 35 not out as St Gluivas reached their target for the loss of five wickets, meaning they have now won their last six league games in a row.
The second team welcomed Ludgvan’s second 11 to Kernick Road and home skipper Kevin Hawke won the toss and elected to bat.
The innings got off to a tremendous start as opening pair Joe Nesbitt and Richard Bannister scored 65 and 59 respectively as the hosts scored 229 before being bowled out in the 47th over.
Their bowlers then finished the job off by getting their opponents all out for 198 to complete a 31 run victory.
Young pace bowler Jack Gleadowe got the best figures in the second innings picking up three wickets for 41.
At Truro School, St Gluvias’ third team played hosts to Porthleven seconds in Division Six West.
After winning the toss and electing to field, bowled their opponents out for 68 in 38.1 overs.
A superb spell from Kyle Winnan, who finished with three for six, rattled through Porthleven’s middle order.
Opening bowler Callum Hinchley also claimed three wickets for 13 runs in an eight over blast.
Nathan Tucker was the visitor’s top scorer with 18 runs before being bowled by Hinchley.
The only other two batsmen to reach double figures were James Dark, who scored 15, and Ben Pascoe, 12.
St Gluvias reached their very low target with 19 overs to spare, losing just one wicket in the process.
