Lydeard were invited to bat first on a rock hard track at Perrott. After the first wicket fell with no score on the board the 2nd wicket partnership was 139 runs with Friday evening signing Stephen Doheny making 108 his partner Andy Sapey 53. Perrott looked likely to chase 275 but after these 2 went the momentum fell away and the spin trio of Johnson,Whorlow and Eckland took 7 wickets and the vistors ended on 227 for 8.
Perrott's reply got off to a bad start with Eckland running himself out and being quickly followed by Josh M-J,Perrott were 7-2. Whorlow and Johnson then put on exactly 150 for the 3rd wicket before Brett Johnson was caught in the deep for 82.Whorlow followed at 186 following another run out having scored 74.George Johnson 37 and Jason Bond 20 saw Perrott home in the 45th over for 4 down and taking Perrott back to the top of the table.
The 2nd XI had a miserable day at South Petherton.Batting first Perrott could only muster 63 as a team.Dom Barnes making 25 and Stu Payne 17.
Perrott took a wicket with out a run being scored and when Petherton were reduced to 22 -3 a sniff of an upset was in the air, however A Pickford 30 and P Acreman 24 saw Petherton home in the 19th over. Theo Draper's 6 overs costing 7 runs and 2 wickets being the only real bright spot of the 2nd innings.
The Academy XI faired even worse against Taunton St Andrews B. Batting first Perrott made just 39 runs with T Stewart 10 the only player to reach double figures. The last 4 batsman all out for ducks ! The visitors knocked off the runs in 18 overs but to their credit the Academy players took 2 wickets, 1 each for T Stewart and Den Best. One of those games to put down to experience and move on.
