Parley II v Burley Cricket Club 2nd XI on Sat 13 Jul 2019 at 13:00
Burley Cricket Club Won by 8 wickets

Match report Burley 2nd XI bounced back to winning ways with a comfortable 8-wicket victory against Parley II at Littledown. Parley elected to bat first but Alex Martin soon made the breakthrough, with Tucker taking one at slip. Carl Foster and James Roberts both picked up two wickets each to have Parley at 70-5 in the 19th over and in danger of not batting their overs. However, opening bat S Booth was still holding up an end, and a partnership of 45 with Grace (26) and then 37 with Taylor saw Parley go past 150, with Jack Hughes breaking both partnerships to leave Parley 152-7. Marcus Reynolds picked up two cheap wickets to restrict Parley to 153-9 with five overs to go. Some hard-hitting from no.11 Owen frustrated Burley as he and Booth added a further 28 for the final wicket, before Owen chipped to Tucker at mid-wicket to end the innings on 181 all out in the 39th over, as Reynolds finished with a third wicket. Booth carried his bat for 58 not out.
In reply, Burley lost Pete Stacey early when he was fortuitously caught behind, before Callum Maher came and went for a quick 23, chipping a full-toss to mid-wicket. With Burley on 49-2 after 9 overs, with the in-form pair of Alex Martin and Dan Maher at the crease, a lot rested on this partnership. The pair batted with relative ease, and an unbroken partnership of 133 took Burley over the line in the 30th over, with ten overs to spare. Martin finished on 70, with Maher on 56. Burley picked up the maximum 24 points, and next week return to The School Green to take on Sway III.
