Batting has been a problem this season for Minehead but they started well against Yeovil with Darren Sherring (41) and Jonah Hopkins (. ) putting on 80 for the first wicket. Bowditch also scored 51 but the Seasiders were eventually bowled out for 230 with Chesterman being the Man of the Match with figures of 4-24. Dan Ewens also took 2-31.
