JAMES Park struck an unbeaten 68 as Broadstone upset Dorset Premier League leaders Dorchester with a comfortable nine-wicket success.

Having elected to field first at Dorchester Rec, the Delph Woods outfit had their hosts reeling at 37 for seven.

Some resistance from former Dorset man Dan Belt (53) kept the county town side in the hunt – propelling them to 138 all out from 49.4 overs.

Steve Trembath was the pick of the Broadstone bowlers with three for 15, while there were also tight spells from Caleb Rowe (2-19), Mike Holm (1-9) and Pete Russell (1-10).

Despite losing Ashley Collison (16) with the score on 28, Park came in at three to steady the ship alongside opener Luke Carter (28no) as the duo reached the 139 required from 35.1 overs.

Victory earned Broadstone a maximum 20 points, while Dorchester picked up just two.

Elsewhere in the division, an unbeaten 57 from Dave Miller helped Poole Town record a successful run chase to win by two wickets against Sherborne.

Chasing 200 to win, the hosts looked to be struggling at Poole Park, after Lewis Marais (6) fell to leave the score 85 for five.

But Miller put on 90 alongside Joe Wormington (32) and saw out the contest with an over to spare alongside James Kirk (11no).

Earlier in the day, Charile Arnold was the pick of the Poole bowlers, returning figures of 3 for 24 from his 10 overs.

Wimborne skipper Mark House struck 76 to help his side seal a tense three-run win over Shroton at Fairfield.

Having been bowled out for 187, the Muinstermen managed to restrict Shroton to 184 for nine from their 50 overs.
