DEVIZES claimed their first win in four weeks after they got the better of a low-scoring contest away at Swindon, claiming victory by four wickets.

After two previous wet weather abandonments and a defeat to Warminster, Tom Grant’s men tasted success for the first time since July 8.

Grant was to the fore for his side, taking 5-33 as Swindon were skittled for just 85 inside 28 overs.

Tim Saye then hit 33 not out to see the visitors over the line as they finished on 86-6, although the win was anything but straightforward.

Grant explained: “I was a bit worried when I saw the weather forecast and we did well to even get a game on, so I’m delighted we got a win as well.

“We went off twice. We didn’t actually get much rain but we had thunder and lightning.

“When we first went off, we had them at about 20-7 and I really thought it was going to tip it down at that point and we wouldn’t be able to turn that position into a victory.

“I was very happy to get five wickets. I actually thought Ben McGowan bowled better than me at the other end but it was my turn to get the wickets, so I am not going to complain.

“You always fancy your chances of chasing a score that low but we knew it wouldn’t be easy as it was a tough wicket.

“We were struggling at one point and we were about 40-6 but Tim was a real rock for us.

“He hit a couple of boundaries and looked really comfortable and that changed the game as you could see the Swindon players’ heads drop in the field.”

Elsewhere, Great Bedwyn leapfrogged Calne at the foot of the table with a 48-run victory away at their relegation rivals.

Nick Davies’ 78 led Bedwyn to total of 212-8 as Calne’s Kevron Cozier took 3-44 before the hosts were bowled out for 170 in reply. Sean Adams hit 52, with the Bedwyn attack led by George Whelan’s 3-29.

James Williams scored 104 and Tom Clist took six wickets as Marshfield trounced Warminster by 71 runs.

Williams and Suffan Hassan (63 not out) shared a fourth-wicket stand of 157 in the home side’s 229-4 before Clist’s heroics dismissed Warminster for 158 despite 53 from Wouter Ras.

Royal Wootton Bassett were unable to stop Trowbridge’s march towards the title as they fell to a hefty 165-run defeat at the league leaders.

Brad Angel took 7-27 to blow Bassett away for 102 in reply to Trowbridge’s 267-5, which was anchored by Matthew Hopkins’ 123.

Finally, Marlborough were beaten by just seven runs as they went down on Duckworth/Lewis method at home to Purton.

Tom Bowler’s unbeaten 59 helped the visitors to 192, although rain saw Marlborough’s target revised to 196, before the home side’s chase came up just short, ending on 189 all out as Morlon Simon scored 62.
