Over at Column, Wellington IV’s produced a marvellous run-chase to secure an unlikely victory after the home team notched up 254-8 in 40 overs. Openers Daniel Taylor (83) and Chris Scott (62) provided the foundation for their side’s big score, whilst Richard Atherden (3-28) was the one Wellington bowler to escape the carnage. However, cricket is a game of two halves and the visitors turned the tables on Column after the break. Ed Bushnell (69) was in blistering form and got his side ahead of the count, with Ollie Stott (32) and Ian Murphy (31) also contributing. With skipper Patrick Howells coming down with an illness, deputy Rich Atherden stepped up to the plate with a finisher’s innings of 51 not out. Ben Pilkington was also unbeaten on 29 as the visitors won by six wickets in the 37th over.
