Paul 190, Callington 127

PAUL moved off the foot of the table with a surprise 63 run win at Callington, only their second success of the season.

Kieran Butler (60) and Tony Riggall (40) put on 94 for Paul's third wicket after Rhys Brownfield and Matt O'Leary had gone cheaply.

Kelvin Snell made 30 before being run out in the 190 all out in the 53rd over. The last six wickets fell for just 36 runs, however, with Matt Robins taking five for 56.

The home side got to 39 for one, with Robins making 25, before he was caught off Butler. That signalled a dramatic collapse as six wickets crashed for 33 runs. Dan Callinan and Andrew Libby both made 24 but the end came at 117 in the 46th over.

Craig Osborne did the early damage and in a superb spell took five for 21 from 16 overs. Ross Williams took three for 32. Butler completed a fine day sending down six maidens in his eight overs.

Grampound Road 184-9, St Just 186-3

FOR the second week running Neil Curnow masterminded a successful St Just run chase, just as at Falmouth his century saw St Just to victory, by seven wickets with 12 overs to spare.

Curnow made 104 before being third out at 144. Skipper Nick George opened the batting in place of David Roberts who has a broken thumb. Gary Thomas (40no) and Gavin Edwards (18no) wrapped up the victory.

The Road had got off to a good start with Tom Hughes and Aaron Todd putting on 59 before seven wickets crashed for 19 runs at 78-7. Aaron Todd made 51 before being bowled by Nick George, who bowled 16 overs off the reel running into the teeth of a howling gale, taking four for 36.

Chris Willett (46no) and Lewis Sanders (38) put on 85 for the ninth wicket.

Josh Semmens took four for 41.

Redruth 55, Falmouth 59-2

FALMOUTH enjoyed a day of celebration at Trescobeas as 60 years of cricket was marked at the venue.

On the field the action was all over in mid afternoon however in a game that finished within 35 overs. Within 50 minutes Redruth had crashed to 25 for six in the 13th over as Justin Stephens and Antony Angove ran riot with the ball.

Angove made the early strikes removing Ben Page and Harry Bolland in successive overs.

Number ten Darren Shorland (10) was the only batsman to make double figures. Stephens took five for 24 from 12 overs and Angove three for 27.

George Popperwell picked up a couple of late wickets for three runs.

Falmouth knocked off the runs in 11 overs losing Richard Kellow (7) and Matt Goldsbury (17). Stefan Churcher hit 21 not out. Craig Williams and Christian Purchase took the wickets.

Camborne 169, Werrington 171-3

WERRINGTON held the aces for much of their clash at Roskear on Saturday, eventually winning by seven wickets with more than ten overs to spare.

Home side Camborne got off to a slow start, losing their first three wickets for 36 in 21 overs. Dan Stephens got the innings moving with 19 before James Rowe and Craig Johnson made 23 apiece.

The highest stand of the innings was the tenth as Martin Jenkin (34no) and Jeff Carvelly (14) put on 43, before Carvelly was run out looking for a second in the 51st over.

Ben Smeeth took three for 15 while Ian Worsnip was excellent bowling into a strong easterly, taking two for 19 from 13 overs.

Nick Lawson (32) and Nick Ward then put on 37 to get the Werrington reply off to a solid start. Alex Smeeth made 53 before being third out at 124. Ben Smeeth (35no) and Adam Hodgson (23no) completed the win.

St Austell 253, Truro 254-3

IT WAS a day for the batsmen at Wheal Eliza with more than 500 runs scored.

St Austell got off to an indifferent start, losing Taylor Williams and Craig Richards for only seven. Mike Bone (53) and Matt Ellison (72) put on 125, in a third wicket stand.

Scott Barrott (39) and Gary Bone (44) then put on 90 but there was a late collapse as last six wickets fell for 31 runs. Harrison took three for 70.

Truro suffered an early setback, losing Scott Harvey with the score at five. Tim Marrion and Tom Sharp then put on 131 for the second wicket before Marrion was dismissed by Steve Raven for 48.

Sharp went on to make an unbeaten 119 that included 20 boundaries. Ross Chadwick (20) and Rob Harrison (33no) completed the job with nine overs to spare. Raven took two for 51.
