Hemyock Cricket Club Close in on Promotion

With three matches remaining it loks almost certain that Hemyock's cricketers will win promotion from Division 5 of the West Somerset Cricket League. This is the club's third season in the WSCL and, after missing promotion by just two points last year, the team are determined to succeed this time around. They have won eleven of their fifteen matches so far this season with two others rained off. It hasn't been quite as easy as those figures suggest though. For instance, their victory over Milverton last Saturday was achieved by the skin of their teeth. Having dismissed their opponents for just 101, with Richard Drew taking three wickets for eight runs, Hemyock had lost eight wickets before scoring the winning runs, having their captain John Hurley to thank for an excellent innings of 61 not out.

Hemyock need another sixteen points to be certain of promotion and they may come this weekend when they visit Kilve. If not they have two home matches to complete the season versus Crowcombe on Saturday 30th August and Stoke St. Mary on Saturday 6th September. Both home matches start at 2.00 p.m. and spectators are always welcome at the Recreation Ground. That final match could be the championship decider if results go Hemyock's way.

Congratulations on what you have achieved already, and good luck for the final run in.
