Wellington made it three wins from the games played in their 2014 pre-season when they were able to complete a game at Somerset League Division One side North Curry last Saturday although poor light and steady drizzle did blight the encounter, but with the weather reports received from the surrounding area pointing to a washout elsewhere it was good to get 90 overs of action in however it came.
Wellington batted first and had much the better of the weather and so Marc Holloway and Arron Campbell added a good 24 run opening stand that was broken when Campbell was bowled for eight; Holloway continued to 29 before he too was bowled, but he had played the cover drive well once more.
This laid the base for the telling part of the Wellington innings as Joel Brockley announced his arrival with a knock of 100 with five sixes as the Red and Blacks Australian import played well all round the wicket and particularly off his legs; he also played the powerful shots too.
He added 156 for the third wicket with Scott Davy who made a pleasing knock of 50 with a six.
Wellington’s lower order added good runs as well and although the score dipped from 241-4 (in real terms) to 247-8 George Hooper and Jack Beal got the final score to 272-9 at tea.
