THE Under 13 Cup semifinal between local rivals Taunton St Andrews and Taunton Deane took place at the Wyvern on Friday evening at the end of which it was the home side who ran out the winners by six wickets.

The Deane batted first and got off to a rapid start on the quick bouncy surface and at 54 for three looked likely to set a big target

However an excellent accurate spell of bowling by Peter McGivern who claimed four wickets for eight runs from his four overs saw raw Deane end on 100 all out.

When the Saints replied they reached their target in the 14th over for the loss of four wickets thanks to an unbeaten 31 from Noah Jones, while for the visitors Will H took four wickets.
