Match report Report written by Jonny Blundell

After big wins for the first and second teams on Saturday it was now the turn of the Sunday XI to continue their fine form. With inspirational captain Daniel Tucker away it was left to vice captain Alec Moorman to skipper the side. On a hot sunny day Burley lost the toss, however were put in to bat for this timed innings encounter. With less than two hours to bat and a very slow over rate to contend with, quick runs were the order of the day. A revised batting line up got off to a shaky start and Burley found themselves in trouble at 15-2 in the 5th over after losing the early wickets of Charlie Moorman and Jim Burry. An unusual pairing of Dan Maher (28) and Jonny Blundell (26) added 57 for the third wicket to steady the ship. After the loss of Blundell, Greg Thew quickly set about the bowling and produced a destructive, quick fire innings. Sportingly, Thew retired at 53* allowing the New Forest Gents some respite and to allow the lower order some time at the crease. James Rapson (40) and Ian Edworthy (22*) took Burley to a more than respectable total of 219 off a measly 27 overs bowled.

After tea the visitors made a positive start to their innings frustrating the Burley bowlers. However, the introduction of Maher (4-2-16-2) and Blundell (5-1-12-3) into the bowling attack quickly triggered a collapse. GOTNF collapsed from 49-0 to 52-5. Skipper for the day Alec Moorman introduced himself to the bowling attack and produced some probing 'length' deliveries. Himself and Rapson taking a wicket apiece to further reduce the visitors to 63-7. Burley encountered strong resistance from Todd (83) but after he fell LBW to Rapson (5-0-21-3) the innings quickly folded. In the end Gentlemen of the New Forest were all out for 171 with Burley winning by 48 runs.
