SUNDAY saw the conclusion of the SCB Major Cup, Minor Cup and Intermediate Cup as well as the women's hardball finals day.

The first three competitions all played their finals at the Cooper Associates County Ground, with the ladies matches at Wembdon CC.

Trull 2nds won the Minor Cup with a five-wicket win over Cranmore.

Batting first, Cranmore found runs hard to come by against an impressive bowling attack and eventually reached 100-6 off their 20 overs.

Stand out performances with the ball for Trull were Jerry Palmer, whose 3-14 won him the man of the match award, and 2-19 from Frank Spurway.

When Trull replied they quickly found themselves 7-3.

Miles Wood (23) and Olly Barrett (20) steadied the ship before Aaron Lake (29*) and Luke Bartlett (18*) saw Trull home, Lake winning the game with a straight six as Trull reached 104-5, much to the delight of their large numbers of supporters.

ILMINSTER suffered final ball heartbreak in the SCB Major Cup final against Bath.

Bath needed eight going into the final over, bowled by Louis Kraucamp, and the first four balls brought a wicket and just two runs.

Star man Tim Rouse was on strike for the final two deliveries, however, and hit both for four to finish on 68 not out and seal victory for the Premier 1 outfit.

Earlier, Kraucamp had made 55 as he and Sam Spurway (46) led Ilminster to a competitive 145-6.

WELL BACKED: Ilminster's support at the County Ground

The wickets were shared around the Ilminster attack in reply as their large contingent of travelling support got right behind them, but it wasn’t to be despite a valiant effort.

The Intermediate Cup was won by Temple Cloud, who defeated Street after successfully chasing down 125.

BRIDGWATER won the ladies hardball competition by defeating Beckington and then Taunton Deane in the final.

The Deane won the toss and asked Bridgwater to bat first but Jemima Turner got the team off to a flying start, retiring on 26 after facing only 13 balls.

Jennifer Poole mixed some clinical stroke play with some excellent running between the wickets and Joleigh Roberts retired on a quick fire 25.

Tilly Bond and Amy Edmundson delivered quick runs to get the total to 118-1 from 12 overs. 

Karla Rose and Anna Parkinson retired on 25 in reply but the Deane fell short on 72.

Earlier in the day, the Deane had beaten Weston-super-Mare in a thrilling semi-final.

Weston batted first and scored 72 runs for the loss of two wickets through run outs in their 12 overs.

The Deane then chased it down with two balls to spare with Amy Sloman hitting the winning runs. Anna Parkinson earlier retired unbeaten on 25.
