Female pitcher gets not as many (5)


I believe the answer is:


'not as many' is the definition.
(similar in meaning)

'female pitcher' is the wordplay.
'female' becomes 'f' (abbreviation).
'pitcher' becomes 'ewer' (synonyms).

'gets' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for fewer that I've seen before include "in smaller numbers" , "smaller number of people" , "Not so many" , "Less in number" , "Reduced" .)

I've seen this clue in The Irish Times.
