Burley Cricket Club Sunday XI v Robins on Sun 01 Jun 2014 at 14:00
Burley Cricket Club Won by 84 runs

Match report Burley Sunday XI got back to winning ways with a comfortable victory over Robins. Daniel Tucker won the toss and elected to bat and opening pair Callum Maher and James Edworthy went out to open the innings. Once again the pair set off in their usual aggressive manner and when Edworthy (20) fell in the 10th over the pair had already put 84 on the board. Maher had passed fifty and was well on course for his first ton of the season. Although it wasn't to be as Robins skipper Dave Crossley clean bowled him for 72 in the 13th over. Charlie Moorman chipped in with 26 before Alec Moorman and Ian Edworthy both had valuable batting practice, both retiring on exactly 50. Jim Burry was the only other wicket to fall as Burley posted a commanding 270-4 off their 40 overs.

After tea, James Rapson made early inroads picking up three quick wickets, James Edworthy took a great catch at mid-off off the bowling of Jim Burry and Robins were quickly in deep trouble at 11-4. With the game won Daniel Tucker gave all ten outfielders a bowl, including interesting bowling spells from himself, Martin Rapson and Alec Moorman. Dan Maher, Ian Edworthy and Tucker all chipped in with a wicket apiece. James Edworthy bowled a brilliant spell of off-spin with the ball beating the bat time and time again, picking up two wickets along the way, including a sharp leg-side stumping from Callum Maher. With Robins nine down James Rapson returned for a second spell, this time bowling some useful spin but neither him or James Edworthy could manage to pick up the final wicket as the Crossley brothers put on an unbroken partnership of 60 in 13 overs to take Robins to 186-9 off their 40 overs. Credit to them for digging in and frustrating the Burley bowlers but nonetheless a great all-round effort from Burley.
