Burley Cricket Club U19 v Verwood on Thu 24 Jun 2021 at 18:00
Burley Cricket Club Won by 16 runs

Match report Burley rebounded from a disappointing performance in their last match to hold on for a well-deserved victory against Verwood on the Green.
The hosts set off at a cracking pace with openers James Turner (23) and Piers Scott (33) putting on 54 for the first wicket before each falling to almost duplicate shots hit towards the school boundary off Tom Prince's bowling with Alfie Perkins holding onto both catches.
The visitors slowed the home side's run rate but Scott Menary (19) and Zach Leishmann (19) kept Burley in the game. Both fell to catches off the bowling of Olivia Ridout (2-5) with Alex Bennett producing a spectacular diving catch to dismiss Leishmann. A late surge from Lawrence Taylor (24no) helped Burley set a decent score of 141.
Dan Carter skittled out opener James Mitchell in only the second ball of Verwood's response. The visiting batters subsequently struggled to find the boundary. Alfie Perkins (32) skilfully batted out 18 overs but only hit two boundaries before falling to Piers Scott, who returned a sparking 4-14 off his three overs as he also removed Verwood's captain Jack Musselwhite (27) and the dangerous Bennett (8).
Verwood's run chase began to lose momentum as Menary (2-21) upended Finley Legge (5) and though Ben Phelps found the boundary Burley comfortably eased home in the final over.
