Burley Cricket Club Sunday XI v Lobsters on Sun 27 Jul 2014 at 14:30
Burley Cricket Club Won by 6 wickets

Match report Burley Sunday XI welcomed Lobsters cricket club back to Burley after a few years absence. Lobsters skipper Graham Welsby won the toss and decided that his team would have the first knock. It's fair to say he may have regretted that decision when at the end of the first over the scoreboard showed 0-2!! Jonny Blundell picked up both wickets, and in just the ninth over Lobsters were in deep trouble at 31-5. Five 'very friendly' overs from Dan Maher and Todd Straughan saw Lobsters begin to rebuild through some hard-hitting batting between ex-Burley player Bill Riddle and R Ashton. The partnership ended at 84 when Daniel Tucker took a skyer off the bowling of James Edworthy to dismiss Riddle for 47. Some tight bowling from both Edworthys and Jim Burry slowed the run-rate and Lobsters crept to a total of 162-8 after their 35 overs, R Ashton finishing unbeaten on 54. Tucker used eight bowlers and two wicket-keepers in the innings, Blundell 7-1-37-3 being the pick of the bowlers, and Ian Edworthy and Matt Fletcher sharing wicket-keeping duties.
For the second week running Burley made light work of chasing a below-par score. James Edworthy and James Rapson both hit fifties before sportingly retiring. Todd Straughan, Tucker, and Stuart Pateman all fell cheaply, Dan Maher chipped in with a well made 28, before Jim Burry and Matt Fletcher saw Burley across the line to complete a good game of cricket played in good spirit.
