Ellingham III v Burley Cricket Club U15 on Tue 13 Jun 2017 at 18:15
Burley Cricket Club Won by six wickets

Match report Burley edged out local rivals Ellingham C in a well-matched derby after a superb unbeaten match-winning innings by Ollie Fitch.
On a beautiful night at Picket’s Post, Ellingham won the toss and elected to bat only to encounter an exceptional spell of spin bowling from Jonny Wakefield.
Jack Hughes pegged Ellingham back after conceding just four runs off his two overs, while Wakefield routed Ellingham’s top order. Ronan Cosgrove (7) played some good shots but was among Wakefield's victims in a deadly spell which produced figures of 3-11.
Josh Stoodley steadied Ellingham's innings and hit three well-placed fours on the way to 22, before being bowled by Sam Howson. Ollie Murdoch (11) proved difficult to remove but was well-caught by Hughes off Fitch’s bowling.
Nathan Howson and Toby Fowler put in tight spells, while Aaron Piper behind the stumps coped well with some difficult bounces. At the death, Danny de Wet (1-8) removed Connor Cosgrove as Ellingham were restricted to 87 with Tom Hosey ran out on the final ball.
As Burley began their reply, runs initially proved hard to come by. After two good boundaries Sam Howson (10) fell to a good ball from Barnaby Williams but Fitch was never in danger of being unseated.
Burley upped the run-rate as Scott Menary found the boundary twice with good strikes on the way to 18 before falling to Ollie Stapleton.
Hughes (7) proved resilient and Fitch (26 not out) had a shot for every Ellingham ball as he took Burley home with a stylish glancing boundary to finish a game played in excellent spirit by both teams.
