Burley Cricket Club U15 v Wimborne & Colehill Phoenix on Tue 20 Jun 2017 at 18:15
Burley Cricket Club Lost by 2 runs

Match report Burley racked up their highest ever score in an exciting run chase against Wimborne only to fall agonisingly short with three balls left.
After winning the toss, Wimborne elected to bat and swiftly punished Burley’s attack. Sam Howson knocked out Luke Whittam’s bails with an excellent ball and Jack Hughes dismissed Sam Fookes but Sam Yeoman and Arthur Purbrick retired for Wimborne after some big hits.
Heads went down amongst the hosts but Burley got back into the game as Nathan Howson claimed his first wicket of the season after Scott Menary held onto a catch to dismiss Tia Bowles.
Good fielding from Ollie Fitch prevented numerous boundaries and more wickets came as Aaron Piper stumped Haydn Bennet-Thurston and Sam Presland (1-5) removed Rosie Purbrick to cap an excellent spell of spin bowling that restricted the score to 134.
That total was nearly 20 runs more than Burley’s highest ever score and looked even more impossible when a herd of cows invaded the outfield.
Burley repelled those invaders only to lose both openers in the first over. A hammering looked on the cards but home captain Menary played his best innings of the season to take the hosts within sight of a sensational win.
Menary thumped seven boundaries across Burley’s lighting outfield in tandem with Jonny Wakefield (8) and then Jack Hughes (7).
After reaching 37, Menary had to retire – for the first time - but big-hitting Sam Howson cracked a couple of boundaries to keep Burley in a tense match.
The hosts went into the final over needing five for an unlikely win. Danny de Wet went looking for a boundary only to lose his wicket to Purbrick with three balls to go, giving the visitors the victory in a thrilling and enjoyable game.
