Six wins on the trot for the showmen

Story posted on

Frome had another impressive win at home against Taunton Deane. 

The showmen had the perfect start with an opening partnership of 140 between Lett (108) and P Sanger (60). This set the platform for Frome’s middle order to reach their highest run total of the season. The opening batsmen were succeeded by S Croker (16), Veal (39) and Smith (26no) who all eagerly added to the run rate.

Frome’s opening bowlers took no time in gaining the first wickets as R Croker (2-53) and Barton (2-29) claimed a wicket each, leaving Taunton Deane 18-2 from 4 overs. M Sanger (2-55) was next to make an impact, before Taunton Deane rallied with a partnership of 86, challenging the showmen’s competitive score.

A crucial run-out by P Sanger put the odds back into Frome’s favour, along with Lett (1-46) gaining an important wicket.

The showmen managed to keep Taunton Deane’s batsmen at bay, with R Croker claiming the last wicket of the game.

Frome hope to continue their six-game winning streak next Saturday (6th July) at home against Yeovil 1st XI (12:30pm start).
