Burley Cricket Club 1st XI v Totton & Eling III on Sat 09 Jun 2012 at 1400
Burley Cricket Club Won by 83 runs

Match report A change of fortune was bestowed upon the Burley faithful with the clubs first league victory of the season and with it a maximum 24 points. Winning the toss, captain Kieron Hudson decided to bat first, something that the 1st XI hadn't done in the previous four league outings.
The innings got off to a slow start. Hudson opened with Wayne Tucker and the pair put on a slow paced 34 against some tight bowling on a slow, damp track. Tucker was the first to go, bowled by Moore for 17 bringing Steve Doick to the wicket.
Hudson was also bowled by Moore for 28 shortly after drinks with the total at 67. Guy Clifford hit a quickfire 15 before an explosive 36 from just 24 balls from Alec Moorman alongside some aggressive hitting from Doick pushed the total over 200 to ensure maximum batting points. Doick finishing the innings 70 not out.
Burley felt the 2nd half of the game would be the tough half. With only one recognised bowler in Wayne Tucker, taking 10 wickets seemed a big ask. Tucker bowled another conservative spell, conceding just 22 runs from his 10 overs and picking up three wickets. Totton skipper, Sam Metcalfe held the Totton reply together but wickets were falling at regular intervals at the other end. Guy Clifford continued taking wickets picking up another 4 (4-39) and Kieron Hudson (3-38) picked up the vital wicket of Metcalfe for 70, caught by 14 year old debutant Dan Parker.
A superb team effort in the field capped a welcome victory and 24 much needed points helping to lift the team away from the bottom three in the league.

Burley 24 points
Totton & Eling 6 points
