MICHAEL BUTLER hit 57 not out as NETTLEBED defeated visitors WOODCOTE on Sunday in a 40 overs a side clash.
Nettlebed struggled early on with tight bowling from Mattimore and Bell. Rob Simmons and Dave Buxton shared a stand of 56 to get some runs on the board as wickets fell regularly.
Nettlebed needed a father and son partnership of 66 between Michael and Sam Butler to take the hosts to a total of 187.
In reply Woodcote started with a flurry of boundaries to get them off to a flying start. Youngster Owen Simmons again bowled well and grabbed the wicket of Lennard while Lee Vockins continued his good form with the ball with 4—20.
Woodcote skipper Jonny Clark made 54 but ran out of partners with Jack Russell picking up two late wickets as Nettlebed ran out 42 run winners.
