Burley Cricket Club U13 v OT's & Romsey on Thu 30 Jun 2016 at 18:30
Burley Cricket Club Lost by 5 runs

Match report A valiant last stand from Burley nearly clinched a dramatic win over OTs only to fall short in the final over on a gloomy New Forest night.
Woeful recent weather had restricted Burley’s opportunities with the last home game against Calmore cancelled after 12 overs due to a nearby lightning strike, and OTs visit was the home side’s sole league fixture in June.
Despite lacking practice and game time Burley struck early on with Sam Howson trapping Bryn Wathen LBW. Daniel Carter then removed Ben Sluman and Will Ritchie leaving OTs on 35-3 and fuelling Burley’s hopes of an unlikely victory against their more experienced Romsey-based opponents.
Further wickets for Scott Menary and a great strike from Danny De Wet followed by a fantastic caught and bowled from Ollie Fitch put the visitors on the back foot.
Jasper Moossun produced some tight bowling but too many loose balls from the home side that did home wicket keeper Aaron Piper no favours plus some strong hitting at the death from Jack Booth (13 n.o.) saw OTs set Burley a challenging total of 95 to win.
The visitors struck early to remove Fitch. Fellow opener Piers Scott (13) proved more resilient but when he was removed by Isaac Light, home wickets began to tumble regularly with too many shots offering an easy catch for OTs’ fielders.
Number eight Charlie Clamp (25 n.o.) steadied the home side’s innings but with the home side a player short he lacked partners.
Wathen removed Piper and the game looked all but up for but Burley had an obdurate last man in left-hander Ben Dukes.
Working well with Clamp, who found the boundary on four occasions, Burley’s last two players chased every run to edge the home side to within reach of an unlikely triumph.
Heading into the last over, six runs would have secured victory but with four balls to go Dukes (3) was caught off Wathen’s bowling to give the visitors the win in great game of children’s cricket..
