Burley Cricket Club Sunday XI v BELT on Sat 16 Sep 2023 at 1pm
Burley Cricket Club Lost by 91 runs

Match report Burley's Sunday XI ended the season with the same result against the same opponents as a year ago but with an improved performance compared to 2022's hammering from BELT. As usual, the toss was lost and Burley were sent into the field on a sticky afternoon and Tom Saxby retired for the visitors after reaching a half century with an array of well-judged shots. Abdullah Abassi (2-29) made an early breakthrough and Rhys Gadsby picked up three wickets but BELT batted out their innings and managed to set a daunting 206 to win.
Gurpreet Singh (30) got Burley off to a good start but Ash Perrett and Richard Thorne kept getting wickets. Scott Menary (16), Simon Webster (15) and Jamie Barrett (13) helped Burley beat last year's low score but the game was up before drinks could be served to end the season with a record of seven wins from 17 games.
