GARY Winsor (pictured left) and Jimmy Dickinson both hit maiden league tons as Frampton Cotterell cruised past Failand & Portbury by 121 runs in Division Three of the Martin Berrill Bristol & District League.
Winsor, who opened, ended unbeaten on 133 off 104 (12 fours, four sixes) while Dickinson was 110 not out (78 balls, ten fours, six sixes) as the pair shared an unbroken third wicket stand of 237.
Frampton totalled an imposing 300-2 before Failand were restricted to 179, Brendan Foreman (4-36 from eight), Hari Kammula (2-32) and Ryan Cater (2-32) combining to complete their side’s sixth win of the campaign.
Another batsman in form was Malik Haroon who compiled an unbeaten on 162 for Bristol Pakistanis in a 75-run win away to Brislington 2nds in Division One.
The opener faced 115 balls and hit 20 fours and two sixes to help his side reach 291-5 before wrapping up a 75-run victory.
Winterbourne 2nds stay top despite a first reverse of the summer, going down by five wickets away to closest rivals Knowle 2nds.
Neil Brown’s spell of 5-17 from six helped restrict Winterbourne to 192-8 before a partnership of 137 between Ian Mills (85) and Joe Milkins (46) saw Knowle to the points.
Owen Onslow, who has been in terrific form this season for Bradley Stoke, shone again in a 109-run home Senior Division win over Timsbury.
The all-rounder cracked 72 in a total of 276-8, captain Ash Baber adding a quick-fire 52, and followed up with 2-25 in a comfortable victory that also owed much to Dan Qureshi’s spell of 5-40.
Bradley Stoke remain third but are now just four points behind Frenchay who went down by four wickets at Pak Bristolians.
Joe Moss hit 43 in a below-par total of 203-5 before Babar Parvaiz (44) and Abdur-Rehman Tabraiz (37) led the reply.
Leaders Bedminster cruised in by five wickets away to their Keynsham counterparts, an unbroken stand of 82 between Lewis Mason (45) and Rob Cunliffe (33) clinching the spoils.
Bottom side Shirehampton are only five points behind Coalpit Heath after holding their nerve for a five-run success away to their rivals.
Aiden Kee’s unbeaten 61 dominated Shire’s 169 all out, Kyle Rose the pick of the attack with figures of 3-29 from nine.
And Rose’s unbeaten 40 then proved to be in vain as Shire closed out their second successive win.
One of the bowling stints of the day came in Division Seven where Ani Sanat bagged 6-14 from eight to help dismiss St George Valley for 59 away to Thornbury 3rds who won by 187 runs.
And there was a fantastic finish in Division Five where Bristol 3rds rallied from 73-9 to chase down a target of 166 and complete a one-wicket win against Barrow Gurney.
The heroes were Harry Tiernan and Jude Hazelgrove who, at ten and 11 respectively, finished unbeaten on 65 and 37 to complete the victory with an over to spare.
