Burley Cricket Club


Stockbridge v Burley Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 13 May 2017 at 14.00
Burley Cricket Club Lost by 8 wickets

Match report Another frustrating afternoon for Burley skipper, Alec Moorman, as the team slipped to a second defeat.
Asked to bat first Burley made a steady start but lost both openers caught and bowled with the score on 28 shortly followed by Michael Moorman leaving the forest side on 37-3. Ray Gunn and skipper, Moorman began the rebuilding and a partnership of 74 saw Burley passed the drinks break (75-3). It was Moorman who would lose his wicket next, caught at deep gully for 35. The acceleration that was missing from the performance last week was provided by next batsman, Ben Crowley whose run-a-ball 45 helped keep the scoreboard ticking. However, he and Gunn were both dismissed in the 40's and the Burley total reached a slightly disappointing 195-7.
After tea, J.Cooke and A.Foord set about the total at the required 4 an over on what seemed a dryer and quicker outfield. As last week Burley missed the opportunity to remove the opening bat when Craig Doick put down Cooke at Gully off the bowling of Jim Burry. Kieron Hudson did hold onto a chance from the same batsman 10 overs later providing Ben Crowley with one of only two wickets Burley would claim. Joined by A.Burton, Foord continued to find runs and both passed the half century mark. Foord was finally dismissed for 70 (bowled by Wayne Tucker) and Burton remained unbeaten on 62 finishing at the crease with J.Monger (26*).
Just 6 points from the fixture leaves Burley close to the bottom of County Division 4 with the tough proposition of Bournemouth III on the School Green next weekend.
