Burley Cricket Club 2nd XI v Bransgore on Sat 24 Aug 2019 at 13:00
Burley Cricket Club Won by 9 wickets

Match report Burley 2nd XI managed to get back to winning ways, after three straight defeats, at home to a weakened Bransgore II. Another lost toss for Tucker meant Bransgore elected to bat on a hot sunny day. After an initial bright start from Bransgore, Jonny Blundell took a caught + bowled to see the back of S Tomkins for 15 to leave Bransgore 20-1 after 6 overs. Bransgore would find runs hard to come by, with Dan Mepham bowling 5 consecutive maidens, and a period of 11 overs seeing just 13 runs scored. Bransgore finished their innings on just 115-9, C Tomkins top-scoring with 23. Blundell, and the two Maher brothers all picked up two wickets each, with James Roberts (6-2-7-1) and Scott Menary picking up one apiece, with Mepham and James Bockett also bowling tightly.
In reply, Burley lost Pete Stacey early, adjudged LBW for 1, before Alex Martin and Dan Maher knocked off the runs, both batsmen finishing unbeaten on 50. Maher was first to his half-century, before 3 consecutive boundaries from Martin ensured he also completed his half-century - and took Burley over the line in the 19th over.
Burley 2nd XI end their final home game of the season, with a very convincing win against a very different Bransgore side, who had beaten Burley by a nine-wicket margin last season. Burley 2nd XI remain in 7th place ahead of their trip to Mudeford next week for the final league game of the 2019 season, where they'll be expecting a much tougher challenge.
