Burley Cricket Club 1st XI v Shrewton II on Sat 14 May 2022 at 13:00
Burley Cricket Club Lost by 5 runs

Match report Burley ended the afternoon disappointed and on the end of a second successive defeat. Putting Shrewton into bat the first half of the match went totally to plan for Burley. For the second week running Burley managed to bowl out their opposition, this time for just 139. Debutant, Rhys Gadsby (now nicknamed The Great Gadsby) was the pick of the Burley attack taking 5-35 in 8 overs. Burley held their catches and the ground fielding was good. Shrewton had no answer on a damp track and Gadsby was well supported by Jim Burry who took 3-22 along with tidy spells from Dan Mepham and Carl Foster.
Unfortunately, the reply never really found fluency. The measured run scoring of Kieron Hudson kept Burley in the hunt but the loss of wickets at the other end allowed Shrewton to keep the Burley chase in check. Hudson ended, carrying his bat for 70 not out but Burley finished just 5 runs short, in a game they will feel they should have won.
Next week the Foresters travel to Branksome to face the Dorset Indians.
