Bennett shines in derby win

NETTLEBED finished their season with a seven-wicket victory against local rivals SWYNCOMBE on Sunday.

With rain forecasted both captains agreed for a Twenty20 match.

Batting first J Crockett with 38 was the mainstay of the Swyncombe innings with Matt Vines and Lee Vockins the pick of the Nettlebed attack.

In reply Nettlebed made a steady start but upped the rate with Peter Simmons, who hit two sixes, and Chris Young, who hit a six. Greg Bennett manoeuvred the ball around the ground for his 52 not out and it was left to Matt Vines to strike the winning boundary with 10 balls to spare.
