This Sunday ( 22nd July ) we entertain Liphook & Ripsley CC from Hampshire in the quarter final of the National Village Cup with the game starting at 1.30.

This is the first time either club has made it this far in the competition and it promises to be a great game.

With the forecast set for continued hot and sunny weather the chairman will don the BBQ apron again for the afternoon and the bar will be  open for liquid refreshments !

Entrance is free and there is plenty of parking at the ground.

So what better place can there be to sit under the coolabah tree and enjoy the afternoons cricket than Willis Lane North Perrott ?

The annual church and cricket club fete was well attended on another hot and sultry Sunday afternoon at Willis Lane to ensure a successful day for both St Martins Church and the cricket club.

Many thanks to all those who supported the afternoon's activities and to the ladies of the church committee, NPCC committee members,players and supporters for their hard work in the run up and on the day.

Perrott entertained Wembdon on Saturday and choose to bat first. Things seemed to be moving along as normal before George Retter missed a straight one at 26, Alex Eckland then proceeded to do the same with the score on 28.Thereafter run scoring proved a little more difficult than usual.Only Gordon Whorlow put up his usual resistance with 69 and aided by Jonny Ireland 16 and Jake Symes 14 did Perrott muster 145 all out.

Wembdon's innings started in the same vein 30 runs for the first wicket but this soon turned into 30-3. Several batsman got in only to then get out.  Alex Eckland leading the way with bowling figures of 4-25, Lorraine Sczepanski took 3-24 and Gordy Whorlow 2-25 as the visitors were bowled out for 111. The win moves Perrott joint top with Chard on 181 points however just 5 points separate the top 4 teams.

The 2nd XI made the short journey over to Crewkerne who batting first made 182-8. Skipper Rick Hyett was the pick of Perrott's bowlers with 3-39 whilst George Johnson weighed in with 2-25.

In reply Perrott the batsman shared the runs around in reaching the target with a comfortable 7 overs to spare. George Johnson scoring 52,Sam Rowswell 49 not out, Tommy Stewart 32 and Nick Taylor 30. The win moved Perrott up to  2nd in the league.
