CORSHAM skipper Tom Foley admitted it was nice to get some revenge on Thornbury when his side travelled to The Ship Field in Prem Two Glos/Wilts on Saturday.

The reverse fixture had proved dismal reading for Corsham as they suffered a seven-wicket defeat to Thornbury in June.

But it provided inspiration for Foley and his teammates as they picked up a 19-run win over the home side, who were the league leaders before the weekend defeat.

Charley Reed and Sam Collier were superb for the away side as they combined brilliantly to hand Corsham an advantage.

Reed went on to notch 110, while Collier chipped in with a handy 53.

“Thornbury were top of the league at the time and when we played them at our place they embarrassed us a little bit so it is nice to get one back over them,” said Foley.

“Charlie Reed batted really well, him and Collier were a real big help on such a hot day.

“Then we just had to bowl well. We kept to our fields and luckily we got a few early wickets to keep the pressure on.

“It was a good win. We have done really well recently, especially when you beat the likes of Thornbury who are top of the league.

“We had a poor start and it makes you think how high we could have been if we started well.”

Elsewhere in Prem Two Glos/Wilts, Burbage & Easton Royal were also victorious as they romped to a 95-run home win over Dumbleton.

The hosts won the toss and chose to bat, before putting up a decent score of 295-7 on a blistering day.

The home team had two standout performers, Owen Alsop notching a superb unbeaten 118 at number five, in addition to 99 from Henry Cooper.

With the ball, David Cope’s troops were equally as efficient, dispatching Dumbleton for 200, Alsop bagging three wickets.

Biddestone were not so lucky, they fell just short away to Trowbridge.

After chalking up a target of 111, Trowbridge stumbled their way to 113-8 after meeting resistance from Naeem Khan and Tyrone Isitt who both registered four victims.
