Burley Cricket Club Sunday XI v Lobsters on Sun 16 Jul 2017 at 14:00
Burley Cricket Club Won by 6 wickets

Match report Burley Sunday XI increased their winning run to 4 on the bounce with a convincing win over a weakened Lobsters XI. The day started badly when skipper Daniel Tucker's unbeaten toss-winning streak came to a halt as Graham Welsby correctly called. Lobsters batted first in a 35-over game - posting 193-8 in an innings that saw Tucker use 7 bowlers - from 15 year-old Scott Menary - to nearly 80 year-old Brian Price. The youngster and the veteran were the pick of the bowlers - most notably opening bowler Menary bowling 7 impressive overs - conceding just 13 runs and picking up 3 wickets in the process. Pricer's 5-0-13-1 was also a good contribution, as well as James Pullen picking up 2-30 off 6.
After serving up his impressive banquet, vice-captain Jonny Blundell opened the batting with his skipper - Tucker falling early, before Kieron Hudson joined Blundell. The pair added 80 before Blundell (41) was caught out in the 19th over to leave Burley 105-2. Alex Martin came and went - 9 year-old Jamie Dodd quickly sussing the flaws in Martin's technique - clean bowling him with his 2nd ball! This brought Harvey Farrell-Jarvis to the crease - HarvDog struck his first run of the season before Lobsters resolved to dirty tactics of bringing their opening bowler back on to dismiss him. By this time Hudson was well on his way to his 3rd Sunday ton of the season - not before Dan Maher made him run a five though! Hudson brought up his century with his 18th boundary, retiring on 103 to leave Marcus Reynolds to hit the winning runs in the 31st over.
A solid win with all XI Burley players being involved with either bat or ball, next up will be a challenging game as Burley welcome Coombe Bissett to the forest.
