Burley Cricket Club Won by 14 runs

Match report Burley Sunday XI made it 5 wins on the bounce with a 14 run victory over Merlin in a close-encounter. Kieron Hudson (51), Alex Martin (49), and Dan Maher (35) steered Burley to 199-9 off 40 overs. S Bristow (3-24 off 8) and J Adams (3-25 off 8) being the pick of the Merlin attack.
Carl Foster made an early breakthrough in Merlin's innings, before Jonny Blundell accounted for the other opener. A partnership of 81 between D Seal (53) and captain S Bristow (44) swung the match in Merlin's favour. The crucial breakthrough was made in the 30th over when Blundell ran out Seal. Jim Burry then picked up three quick wickets in an impressive spell of 3-23 off 8 overs. A couple more run outs and a wicket for Scott Menary meant Merlin needed 15 to win off the last over, to be bowled by Menary, with the last pair at the crease. 15 year-old Menary kept his nerve, bowling number 11 R Parsons first ball of the final over, to ensure Burley completed a 14 run victory, and kept the winning streak going.
