View our gallery from Swindon Cricket Club v Frenchay in the Glos/Wilts Division at the weekend taken by photographer James Booth.

Promotion-chasing Swindon unfortunately came up short against Frenchay who posted 251-6 with openers Jordan Khan (53) and Mike Donaldson (73) doing most of the damage.

Matthew Kidd top scored for Swindon with 49 while Marc Williamson added 48 as the hosts eventually fell 2o runs short of victory as they were all out for 232.

Williamson topped the bowling statistics for Swindon as he took three wickets for 31 runs.

In Premier Two, Lechlade claimed a six-run victory against Keynsham with Brad Dial scoring his third century of the season.

The South African’s unbeaten 138 helped take Lechlade’s total to 316-6 after openers Benny Ellis (34) and Ryan Higgins (65) had got the Manor Ground side off to a perfect start.

Keynsham made a great attempt at chasing down the total before coming up six runs shy as they finished on 310-9.

Doing the damage with the ball for Lechlade was Joe Breet (2-32) and Tristan Hawkes (4-60).

In the Wiltshire Division, Purton suffered another defeat as they lost by 49 runs at home to Marshfield.

James Williams’ 104 helped Marshfield to a declaration of 250-9.

Skipper Aaron Lee (3-41) and Imran Ashraf (2-45) were the pick of Purton’s bowlers.

In reply, Purton could only manage 201-9 from their 50 overs with Tom Bowler and Santhosh Iyengar both making 33, Adam Woolford 29, Lee 28 and Sam Shelford 22.

In the Wiltshire League, Division One table toppers Royal Wootton Bassett were beaten for the first time this season by Nationwide House.

Nationwide had Bassett in trouble early on when Shashank Kumar dismissed Jack Twine with just 22 runs on the board.

Russell Arkley, who finished with figures of 5-34, soon had Bassett at 23-2 after dismissing Sam Lawro.
Darren Beasent and Akash Sharma hauled Bassett back into the match as they dragged the score up to 67-2 but that soon became 87-7 as Arkley did his damage with the ball.
Bassett were eventually skittled out for 129 and Nationwide duly delivered with the bat as they reached their target with 12 overs to spare.
