Truro defeated Newquay by four wickets in a low scoring ECB Cornwall Premier League game at Boscawen Park on Saturday.

It completed a good week for the club with young county player and former Menheniot skipper, Alex Tunnadine, having completed a transfer and will be eligible from next weekend to bolster both the batting and bowling.

Tom Sharp won what was to prove a good toss. The visitors, having been put in, were soon in trouble and they lost Tim Walton and Joe Crane, both to Chris Phillips, with only two on the board.

Barry Purchase, returning to his old club, was bowled by Richard Lewis for five then opener Rory Coutts who hit four fours in his 25, became a third victim for Phillips at 37-4.

Skipper Rob Harrison and young Dan Davies added 30 for the fifth wicket to give the visitors hopes of a decent total, but Richard Lewis struck again to have Harrison caught behind for 14. Wickets fell quickly with Andrew Libby accounting for Davis and John Truscott and it was left to last man Gyles Reynolds to hit three fours in his 16 to see up the 100.

The innings ended after 43 overs at 104 with Lewis taking 4-30, Phillips 3-30 and Libby 2-20 from 10 overs.
