Chard Cricket Club had an unfortunate weekend of results.

It started on a high note, however, with the first team beating Bridgwater 2s by a single wicket on June 8.

The opposition started strong, but some dedicated Chard bowling led to a scoreline that quickly shifted from 53-0 to 54-3 after just 14 overs.

Jon Legg from Chard was the standout bowler, contributing significantly to Bridgwater being reduced to 167-8.

A beneficial ninth wicket stand managed to push the visitors to 221-8.

Chard's response was initially slow, leading to 82-5.

Nevertheless, a significant partnership of 112 between Malcolm Cloete and Scott Wells-Burr put Chard in a strong position.

Still, as wickets tumbled, tension increased.

Oliver Legg of Chard hit both the deliveries he faced to the boundary to see his side home.

The second Chard team did not fare as well in their match against Spaxton 1s.

Spaxton secured an overwhelming 267, largely due to a score of 130 by Tim Hill.

Brian Thomson was the most successful Chard bowler.

Several Chard batters started strong but no one managed to post the substantial score needed.

Andrew Clancy and Yousiah Shahzad left the best impression but couldn't prevent Chard from falling 73 runs short.

The weekend disappointment continued with the Chard Ladies First team losing by 41 runs to North Perrott.

Hayley Francis and Lucie Hopkins of Chard performed well, opening strong with the ball.

Ultimately, North Perrott managed 137-3, thanks mostly to Helen Crossman and Hollie Knight's performance.

Despite a good effort, Chard weren't able to close the gap and fell short by 41 runs.

The unfortunate results of the weekend were wrapped up by Chard Sunday A's loss to Broadwindsor by 122 runs.

Broadwindsor managed 283 from their allocated 40 overs.

James Green and George Grinter managed the best figures with the ball for Chard.

Chard's answer did not match up to the task.

Despite a late-game effort from Ben Riley, scoring his maiden half-century, Chard couldn't catch up, ending the game 161-283.

The weekend's results are disappointing.

The team's players continue to perform well individually, but as yet, this has not translated consistently into team victories.
