Invincible! Why not take us on in 2015?
THE Lashings All-Stars completed a perfect season by by beating Taunton on Sunday.
The convincing 119-run win was the 34th win out of 34 games for the All-Stars and marked the ideal conclusion to a triumphant 2014 season.
Local legend Ian Blackwell was the star attraction at Taunton, hitting 95 in a total of 276-5, with Murray Goodwin the next highest scorer on 86.
It was a total Taunton never really looked like getting anywhere near although they did manage to bat out their overs to finish on 157-8.
On a sad note the game was marred by a serious injury to Taunton's George Webber. It goes without saying that we all wish him a speedy recovery.
