Burley Cricket Club


CBBEA v Burley Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 06 May 2017 at 14.00
Burley Cricket Club Lost by 3 wickets

Match report A mixture of positives and disappointments as the 1st XI began their league campaign with defeat at the hands of CBBEA on the opening day of the 2017 season. A number of drop catches, if held might have had the CBBEA nerves jittering a bit more whilst chasing 165 and with a little bit of luck things could have swung Burley's way.

Alas, the target was not enough, especially with a very short boundary one side(only possibly rivalled by the pavilion end at Kinson Manor). Asked to bat first Burley lost skipper, Alec Moorman to his first ball, caught behind (enough about that - I think!). Kieron Hudson and Ray Gunn steadied things but the going was tough against a consistent attack. When Hudson fell to Schulkins, Michael Moorman joined Gunn and again steady progress was made. Hudson, Gunn and Moorman all made it into the 30's but no further and a regular loss of wickets meant there was no real acceleration in the innings. 17 from Ben Crowley, 15 from Jim Burry and a confident 12* from U15, Charlie Clamp all helped to set the home side 165 after tea.

Rob Schulkins hit the early Burley attack and his 75 was the difference between the two sides. Burley had their chances to remove him earlier but they were not taken. Once Schulkins had been dismissed more wickets fell and the game became closer. 30 more runs and some taken chances it could have all been different!

Experience and youth made the headlines for Burley as there were notable 1st XI league debuts for Charlie Clamp who along with his 12* with the bat, took 1-30 with the ball and Mark Wheeler who took 3-27 with his canny off spin.

And then we all went for a beer!

The 1st XI head off to Stockbridge next week hoping to build on the positives and diminish the disappointments.
