Captain Kevin Curtis lifted the Somerset Intermediate Cup on Sunday 5th August after a well deserved victory against Street CC.

After a very tight opening spell from Simon Mosey and Chris Diaper, Street were never able to build a challenging enough score on what was, by now, a well used Taunton strip.

Good back-up bowling and regular wickets from Andrew Mortimer, Rob Head and Miles Hackett limited Street to 125 in their 20 overs.

Belligerence from Hackett at the top of the innings saw Temple get off to a flying start.

The loss of Miles and run out of Andrew Mortimer brought the Curtis brothers together in the middle of Temple’s reply.  Simon continued to bat patiently and Captain Kevin took advantage of anything loose.

Simon’s departure brought wicket keeper Courtney Forrest to the crease to join Kevin.

The runs were knocked off in relative comfort in the final over with 3 balls to spare, much to the delight of those who could travel as well as those watching the live feed provided courtesy of Somerset Cricket Board.

Thanks to Somerset County Cricket Club for hosting and all who contributed to making this a special day for everyone involved.
