St Just suffered an agonising five-wicket defeat at home to Wadebridge in the Cornwall Premier League on Saturday.

St Just had set the visitors 222 to win after being bowled out in the final over, with Wadebridge reaching their target with just 11 balls remaining.

St Just won the toss and chose to bat but their innings got off to a nightmare start with the loss of opener Lewis Goldsworthy for a duck after just three balls.

Jacob Harvey fared little better, reaching nine before he was dismissed by Callum Wilson, who went on to take five wickets for 37 runs.

Daniel Lello (1) followed but Neil Curnow got things back on track with 41 before he became the first of three to be caught out by Matthew Joliffe.

Gavin Edwards (1) fell cheaply soon after as the Tribute T20 finalists reached 75-5, but Justin Stephens came in with an innings high of 62 off 91 balls before he was caught off Sam Richards’ delivery.

Richards also took Gareth May but not before the batsman had added a very useful 46, with Philip Nicholas and Steve Kevern adding 24 and 17 respectively before both were caught by Joliffe off Wilson deliveries.

Wilson then took Ben Stevens (8) for his fifth and final wicket as St Just were bowled out for 221 in the final over.

Wadebridge’s reply couldn’t have got off to a much poorer start when Joliffe was caught by Edwards for a duck after nine balls.

But their fortunes soon improved with Richards and Kevin Renecke enjoying a 56-run stand before Richards was caught by Kevern, having added 27 to the cause.

Renecke batted on and went on to reach a superb 108 not out off 125 balls.

His second partner James Turpin managed just seven before he was bowled by May, with his replacement Tom McLachlan being caught by the same man on his way to scoring 11.

Matt Bennetts added a handy 32 before he was caught by Curnow as the visitors closed in on 200, with Callum Wilson (15no) joining Renecke to see Wadebridge over the line in the 49th over.
