DOWNEND bowler Bobby Naeem took an incredible nine wickets for 22 runs as the club's first XI bowled out Taunton Deane bowling them out for 43 runs.
The club's openers reached their target in just six overs in the match on June 12, one of the high points in a mixed season so far.
The first XI also picked up a good win on May 15 against Bedminster but have been struggling in the West of England Premier Cricket League Premier One, and are currently in eighth place after losses to Clevedon, Cheltenham and Bath, being bowled out for under 100 in the first two games and losing by four wickets to Potterne in their most recent match.
The fixture at Bath was preceded by the club's sponsored walk, with supporters walking the 12 miles to the away match and raising £2,400, which will be split evenly between the club and nominated charity Marie Curie Cancer Care.
The 2XI are struggling to pick up a win but are quite short of players at the moment. The 3XI are a young side and are playing some good cricket, winning some and losing some.
