Burley Cricket Club 2nd XI v New Milton IV on Sat 21 Jul 2018 at 13:00
Burley Cricket Club Won by 9 wickets

Match report Burley 2nd XI made it back to back wins, ending New Milton IV's four-game winning streak in a crushing manner. Skipper Daniel Tucker won his 6th successive toss and stuck New Milton in to bat. With Burley missing both regular opening bowlers, Alex Martin and Jim Burry stepped up to open - Martin making early inroads by picking up two wickets in his opening spell. Burry, restricted New Milton in a spell of 8-4-13-1, and Wayne Tucker followed up the openers with 6-4-7-1 as New Milton were in trouble at 38-4 at drinks at 20 overs. Scott Menary and Mark Wheeler continued to keep New Milton under pressure - the pair both picking up two wickets each in their six-over spells, before Dan Maher got in on the act with two wickets in three balls to finish the New Milton innings in the 34th over with just 79 on the board. Matt Oxford (15*) and Justin Connor (12) were the only batsmen to reach double figures in a good all-round bowling display, backed up by the fielders - with Alex Martin's one-handed running catch off Wheeler the pick of the catches.
After tea, Alex Martin and Pete Stacey set about the run chase in comfortable fashion - finding the boundary regularly - and the pair looked set to guide Burley to a 10-wicket victory before Stacey mistimed one and was caught for 31 (7x4s) to end the partnership at 56. Andrew Dilworth joined Martin at the crease, and just a couple overs later Martin had hit Burley past their target inside 14 overs, finishing unbeaten on 41 (9x4s) as Burley claimed a 9-wicket victory and a finish before 5pm.
Burley picked up 23 points out of a possible 24 - missing out on the extra point by losing the wicket of Stacey, and move up to 8th place in Regional Division 2 South West. Next up for Burley is a trip to Kinson Manor to take on Suttoners II, who currently sit in 12th place.
