Saturday 10 May
Heavy overnight rain cleared to give a very blustery showery day, West Cornwall mostly dry however.
REDRUTH provided a shock result at Trewirgie in beating TRURO by 20 runs to throw the west group of the Premier 50/50 Cup wide open. Any two of four clubs can still qualify for the semi-finals with one round of matches to play. In a game reduced to 45 overs a side Redruth got to 46 before losing their second wicket. From there on the innings collapsed to 93 all out. Their last four wickets fell without a run added. Opener Aaron Wallace held the innings together with 46 before being sixth out. Ross Pascoe took three for 14. Truro had early problems losing Tim Marrion, Tom Sharp, Callum Whitaker and Scott Harvey with only 21 on the board, Liam Lombard top scored with 15 and skipper Rob Harrison made 14 in the 73 all out in the 38th over. Martin Strick took four for 16 and Etienne Joubert and Darren Shorland took two each. ST JUST lead the group after winning at FALMOUTH by six wickets. Antony Angove came to the crease at 9 for two after Harry Roberts and Stefan Churcher went cheaply. He went on to make 50 before being run out. Arup Revandkar with 16 was the only other home batsman in double figures in the 95 all out. Mark George took three for 20 and Philip Nicholas 3-6 from six overs. Angove bowled Neil Curnow for two but Mark George (20), Harry Medhurst (31), Gavin Edwards (16no) and Justin Stephens (12no) sealed the win in the 23rd over. Guy Leathley took two for 19.
NEWQUAY are through to the semi-finals after beating CALLINGTON by 33 runs at the Sports Centre. In a 25 over game, that started at 3.30pm, Newquay’s openers Joe Crane (51) and Usman Arshad (67 put on 103 for the first wicket in the 14th over. Adam Cocking made 26 in the 179 for four. Crane and Arshad hit three sixes apiece and Cocking two. Callington’s openers Matt Robins and Jake Libby put on 95 for their first wicket in 18 overs. Robins went for 47 and Libby went on to make 46. Aidan Libby was 21 not out but Callington didn’t seriously threatened. WERRINGTON’S chances of making it a hat trick of titles are all but over thanks to the weather. Damp run ups meant their game with ST AUSTELL at Ladycross yesterday had to be cancelled. Werrington are yet to complete a game in the competition after two cancellations and an abandonment.

Monday 5 May
After a bright morning rain set in from mid afternoon.
Camborne 159-4 v Falmouth. Rain stopped play
The forecast Bank Holiday rain duly arrived at Roskear in mid afternoon with Camborne 90 for three after 24 overs. A resumption was made at 4.30pm but only eight more overs were possible, in gloomy conditions, before the players came off at 5pm as the weather set in. Matt Rowe was going well at the time on 75 with Craig Johnson also unbeaten on 32. Guy Leathley picked up two wickets with one each for Antony Angove and Glyn Furnival.
St Just 254-8 v Truro. Rain stopped play
The abandonment came at tea at Cape Road but not before the St Just faithful had witnessed some encouraging signs for the season ahead. New recruit, Aussie Harry Medhurst, made a good first impression with the bat. He made an excellent 65 with a six and 12 fours. At the other end the usually prolific Neil Curnow was happy to look on, in an opening stand of 82. The tried and trusted Curnow (30), Gavin Edwards (34), returning Justin Stephens (33) and newcomer Daniel Mitchell (21) were the leading contributors in a big total. Tom Sharp was as miserly as ever taking three for 26 off ten overs. New boys Kelvin Snell and Liam Lombard both took two wickets.
Callington 76 Grampound Rd 79-2
Grampound Road beat the weather on Monday to knock over Callington at Moores Park, keeping their cup hopes alive. Two defeats for Callington over the weekend sees them having to regroup ahead of the league campaign. With Matt Robins making 19 at 31 for one there wasn’t too much sign of the problems ahead. However Road skipper Chris Roberts and newcomer from Ladock, Alex Ridd, had other ideas. They ripped through the order as the last nine wickets fell for 44 runs. Roberts took four for 22 and Ridd five for 10 from 8.3 overs in a remarkable spell. With rain in the air Tom Hughes (20), David Hoskings (23no) and Alex May (27no) wasted little time. Tom Dinnis took the two wickets.
Werrington 165-4 v Newquay did not bat - Rain Stopped Play
Werrington will probably need to win both remaining games if they hope to retain their title. Only 43 overs were possible at Ladycross before rain ended proceedings before four o’clock. Nick Lawson made 47 before being third out at 111. He was well supported by Alex Smeeth (20) and Mark Gribble (33). Ben Smeeth was just beginning to get going on 34 when the weather intervened. Richard Spall and Usman Arshad shared the four wickets.
Callington – Callington 76 (M Robins 19; A Ridd 5-10, C Roberts 4-22), Grampound Road 79-2 (A May 27no, D Hoskings 23, T Hughes 20; T Dinnis 2-33). Grampound Road (18 points) beat Callington (one) by eight wickets.
Camborne – Camborne 159-4 (32 overs) (M Rowe 75no, C Johnson 32no; G Leathley 2-31), v Falmouth. Rain stopped play. Match Abandoned; Camborne 9 points, Falmouth eight.
St Just – St Just 254-8 (H Medhurst 65, G Edwards 34, J Stephens 33, N Curnow 30; T Sharp 3-26, K Snell 2-38, L Lombard 2-52) v Truro. Rain stopped play. Match Abandoned; St Just 11 points, Truro nine (deducted 1 point – slow over rate).

Saturday 3 May
Dry, cool some afternoon sun.
Truro got off to a winning start in the Premier 50/50 Cup with a 74 run home win over Falmouth at Boscawen Park. They got off to a good start with Tim Marrion (31) and Scott Harvey (39) putting on 70 for the first wicket. Tom Sharp and Callum Whittaker made 17 each before Kelvin Snell hit 21 in the 180-8. Former Stithians player Glyn Furnival took three for 37 from ten overs on his Falmouth debut. Guy Leathley picked up two for 38. Falmouth’s reply got off to a disastrous start losing their first four wickets for seven runs shared by Rob Harrison and Kyle Van Rooyen. That became 24 for seven at one point before newcomer Arup Revandkar found some support from the tail. Kieran Rodda got double figures before Revandkar was last out for 56. Van Rooyen took four for 22 and Harrison three for 18. In the other west group game Camborne won a low scoring affair over derby rivals Redruth at Roskear, by 41 runs. After losing Kevin Roberts Nick King made 20. New skipper Matt Rowe held things together with 31 before being seventh out at 81. The innings ended in the 45th over at 103. Martin Strick and Darren Shorland took three wickets each. The Redruth batting failed with only Aaron Wallace and Strick, with 13 apiece, getting double figures.

The Newquay bowlers shared the wickets with two each for Usman Arshad, John Williams, Martin Pearce and Tom Eggins. Arshad, opening the bating, dominated the Newquay reply. He hit an unbeaten 81 to see his side home by six wickets with eight overs to spare. Joe Crane, Pearce, Zaid Joseph and Michael Harding all supported with double figures. Lewis Sanders took two for 32. St Austell enjoyed a 23 run home win over Callington at Wheal Eliza. They were in trouble at 80 for seven after Mike Bone and Craig Richards had put on 31 for the first wicket. The innings was saved by Callum Wilson who hit 52 sharing a 63 run eighth wicket stand with Steve Raven. Needing 156 Callington were hampered when skipper Matt Robins had to retire with a leg injury. He returned but was soon out for a single, bowled by former team mate Andrew Libby. Jake Libby top scored with 54.
