WESTBURY skipper Alex Senneck was delighted with his side after they thrashed Thornbury to claim a nine-wicket away win over the weekend.

After losing the toss, Senneck was forced to take his side to the field, but that didn’t prove to be a problem as they dispatched the hosts for 144.

The star of the show was James Hudson who claimed 5-35, while Andy Carroll and Senneck both got two wickets each.

The victory is now a third on the bounce for Senneck’s side, who are third in the league standings behind Goatacre and Cheltenham.

“It was another good performance. We loss the toss on a soft wicket, which I thought was going to be good for batting, but, as it turned out, it was a good toss to lose,” said Senneck.

“We put some early pressure on which got them under the pump fairly quickly and we got their best batter, Dan Davis, out sharpish which was good because he got 176 in his last match.

“There was a bit of resistance from their captain but we slowly got through their order and should have got them out for about 120.

“They crept up to 144 but we knocked them off in 20 overs and lost one wicket so it was a very pleasing result.”

The Westbury skipper was quick to praise Hudson, as they turn their attention to the final game of the season at home to Rockhampton.

“James ripped through the middle order after we got through the openers and he was very strong, he bowled with a lot of pressure,” he added.

“They weren’t able to deal with it so it was a very good performance from him.

“We are very happy with how the season is finishing out, a win at home to Rockhampton would be a good way to finish it.

“I’m not looking at where we could have won the league, because Goatacre have lost one game all season and Cheltenham have beaten us twice.

“You have to take your hats off to them and if they go up then that is great for them.

“Everyone is fit for the last game of the season so we go into that and look forward to getting a last win of the year. Considering we only came up this year, we have to be happy.”
