Sussex Junior Festival of Cricket 2014 -U/14 team

posted 9 Aug 2014, 03:50 by Rory Gogarty

Well done to the boys for coming second in their group behind a very strong Broadwater Colts team but well ahead of Priory Park, Barns Green and Midhurst. The only game lost was to Broadwater Colts (a game we should have won) but the boys all played with great spirit and enjoyed the week.  All the boys made significant contributions with bat, ball or in the field exemplifying the team nature of the game. There were some particularly notable individual contributions amongst this excellent team play: Tom Gogarty's 103 and Alfie Edworthy's 58 both against Barns Green, Luke Haddow's 55 not out against Broadwater, Eddie Kendall's 50 not out against Priory Park and George Williams 29 which held the innings together against Priory Park. All our bowlers did very well and we were the strongest attack in this League. Percy Moore's 6-21 against Barns Green was outstanding but Alfie Edworthy, Luke Haddow and Will Gaynor all bowled particularly well all week.
A big thank you to the parents who helped organise with lifts and teas especially Annabel, Annastasia, Cara and Philippa. Special thanks to Tom for helping to umpire and score and to Simon who proved he is a master at scoring in the rain.

Ifield vs Bosham - Sussex Junior Cricket Festival u12s

posted 30 Jul 2011, 02:04 by Martin Farrell

Pre match practice
With one final effort of a weeks long cricket tournament Bosham just failed to take the final Ifield wicket that would have secured a deserved win. Thomas Phizackerley and Thomas Gogarty bowled the last three overs seeking the tenth Ifield wicket. With ten balls to go, Haroon Mahomed prodded forward the ball hit the shoulder of the bat and the ball looped tantalisingly to Jason Beard at point but he failed to hang on to the catch. There was another huge appeal when Neel Nayee shuffled back and across his stumps but the umpire turned down the appeal for leg before. Somehow Ifield survived and to great cheers from the home crowd held on for a draw.

Bosham had won the toss and elected to bat. Openers Gogarty and Jamie Glennie got the team off to a solid start scoring 39 and 29 respectively. Luke Haddow (21) and Thomas Phizackerley (13) also played well but it was an excellent innings from Barnaby Watney that put Bosham in a commanding position by the close of the innings. Watney's unbeaten 28 included the only six of the day which he hit far over mid wicket. Batting with the Bosham tail he guided his team to a total of 170 and a declaration.

Mahad Ahmed hit a brilliant 74 as he kept Ifield in the game. With the comfort of having plenty of runs in hand Bosham could afford to attack and they picked up wickets. When a sharp piece of fielding from Dominic Gogarty claimed the wicket of Tharidu Abeyrathna Bosham sensed victory. Abeyrathna had scored 23 and apart from Ahmed was the only other Ifield batsmen to make double figures. When Phizackerley returned in to the attack and claimed the wicket of Ahmed Bosham seemingly had the game won. Wickets fell in quick succession and with a full three overs remaining the visitors needed just one more wicket. However they could not make the break through and ended the tournament with their second winning draw of the week.

Bosham v Horsham Trinity - Sussex Junior Cricket Festival u12s

posted 29 Jul 2011, 01:21 by Martin Farrell

Olly Lewis scored a magnificent 78 for Horsham Trinity. In partnership with Andrew Price (35) the pair added a Club record 135 for the third wicket and played the major part in posting a commanding total of 190. In reply Bosham could only manage 109 and suffered their first defeat of the Festival.

Haddow bowling
The day had started well for Bosham with Thomas Phizackerley winning the toss and Luke Haddow continuing his great form taking two wickets in two deliveries in the fourth over to reduce Horsham Trinity to 20 for 2. Then the momentum went out of the bowling attack as Lewis and Price piled on the runs for the visitors. Lewis' innings included a magnificent pull for six and six fours.

Gogarty bowls the Horsham Trinity batsmen
It was not until the 26th over that Haddow returned for a second spell and made the big breakthrough clean bowling Price. He followed up in his next over by bowling Lewis and with dominant batsmen back in the pavilion were 157 for 4. Bosham bowled with more enthusiasm in the remaining overs of the match taking a further five wickets. Thomas Gogarty (2), Luke Spencer (2) and Joe Farrell (1) doing the damage. Horsham Trinity closed on 190 for 9.

The Bosham reply started ominously when Jamie Glennie was given out LBW to the first ball of the innings only to be reprieved when the umpire realised that he had got an inside edge. However, the reprieve was short lived and only two balls later Glennie was dismissed LBW to Max Tustin.

Gogarty and Haddow produced a determined effort for the second wicket and had managed to add 67 when Haddow lost concentration and was well caught by Price off the bowling of Scott Cuming. A flury of Bosham wickets followed and the home team soon found themselves reduced to 102 for 9 with 5 overs of the game remaining. Michael Hellyer and Jason Beard showed considerable fortitude as they battled for an unlikely draw. With only 8 balls of the match remaining Beard was bowled by Lewis and Bosham had lost their first match of the week.

Horley v Bosham - Sussex Junior Cricket Festival u12s

posted 28 Jul 2011, 01:23 by Martin Farrell

Thomas Gogarty played his best ever innings for Bosham as he resolutely maintained his focus to grind out a fabulous victory against Horley. With only three wickets remaining and still needing 51 runs to win Bosham dug-in and refused to give up thanks to the Fantastic Four. 

The Fantastic Four

Bosham had thrown away early wickets with some disappointing shots in what appeared to be over confidence in in being able to chase down a moderate total of 121.

Gogarty partnered with Jason Beard, Ben Farrell and Barnaby Watney for the last three wickets. When Luke Spencer was unfortunate to leave a straight ball from Bailey Darar it reduced Bosham to 71 for 6. Momentum had swung towards Horley and the home side were now clear favourites for the match. Opening bowler Max Holland was reintroduced in to the attack as Horley searched for the next wicket. Beard had joined Gogarty for the seventh wicket and the pair set about defending against the better Horley bowlers. Beard kept out the bowlers for 13 deliveries as the pair added 18 valuable runs to the total.

When Beard finally succumbed to the bowling of Matthew Gainsford edging one behind to the keeper Bosham were seven wickets down for 89. As they were playing with only 10 men it meant 33 were needed with just two wickets left. Ben Farrell was next in and he started nervously prodding forward and looping the ball tantalising close to the fielder at short extra cover. His nerves were calmed when he smashed the next ball over mid-on for four. From then on he survived 21 balls in a partnership that added 29 runs and put Bosham within four runs of victory.

Meanwhile Gogarty was playing superbly, taking the majority of the strike and seeing off the best Horley bowlers. In the 35th over Farrell clipped a ball off his legs that went past the short leg fielder and the batsmen set off for a run. The rest of the Bosham players on the boundary were screaming for two runs to be taken and this turned out to be terrible advice as Farrell was run out by a couple of metres with a direct hit. To add to their woes Farrell has run one short in his desperation to make his ground.

With the score on 118 it was the turn of last man Barnaby Watney to pair up with Gogarty. Watney resolutely defended seven dot balls as he too denied Horley the victory.

At the start of 39th over Palmer dropped the ball a little full and wide and Gogarty pounced crafting a superb off drive past cover for four. It was the culmination of a brilliant innings that had lasted over two hours and 93 balls. He had carried his bat for the whole innings and scored a match winning total of 57 not out.

Bosham vs Goring-By-Sea - Sussex Junior Cricket Festival u12s

posted 27 Jul 2011, 01:07 by Martin Farrell

Phizackerley too tired to open his eyes after scoring fifty
Thomas Phizackerley scored a wonderful half century to set-up the first victory for Bosham in the Sussex Junior Cricket Festival.

When the openers Jamie Glennie (15) lofted a regulation catch to mid-off and Thomas Gogarty (13) ran himself out Bosham found themselves on 32 for 2. This soon became 41 for 4 when Barnaby Watney and Jason Beard were both caught out in quick succession. The home team were under pressure and Luke Haddow and Thomas Phizackerley came to the rescue forming a partnership for the fourth wicket that added 76 runs.

Early in the partnership it was Haddow that was the aggressor. He played some attacking shots and was on occasion lucky to survive while his partner, Phizackerley, worked the singles and rotated the strike. The team recovered from their early loses and reached 100 in the 21st over.

Haddow was dismissed tantalizingly two short of his half century when he was caught by Jacob Orbell from the bowling of Chris Jones. The diminutive Dominic Gogarty was next man in and he entertained the crowd with a quick fire 20 that included three fours. Batting with Phizackerley the pair had guided Bosham to a total of 175 when they declared their innings. Jacob Parkin was the pick of the Goring bowlers taking 2 for 34 from his 7 overs.

Following their disappointment of not being able to bowl Crawley out to claim a win on the day before Bosham started their reply with extra determination. However, Charlie Glynn and Jacob Orbell batted resolutely until the sixth over when Phizackerley trapped Orbell leg before wicket. By now Haddow was making the ball swing in to the right handers and he took two wickets in quick succession to reduce Goring to 44 for 4.

Unlike the previous day the other Bosham bowlers pressured the batsmen and wickets fell regularly with Glennie, Thomas Gogarty, Joe Farrell and Michael Hellyer all claiming wickets. Despite some resistance from Aaron Hartley batting at eleven for Goring and scoring 16 not out Bosham dismissed the visitors for 116 to claim maximum points.

Crawley vs Bosham - Sussex Junior Cricket Festival u12s

posted 26 Jul 2011, 01:39 by Martin Farrell   [ updated 26 Jul 2011, 02:42 by Martin Farrell ]

Jamie Glennie hit a magnificent 111 as Bosham made their first ever appearance in the Sussex Junior Cricket Festival. Glennie powered his way to a maiden century with some glorious pulls and cuts in an innings that included thirteen fours.

It was the first time anyone could recall a match being played between Bosham and Crawley. The day of firsts continued with Glennie's century and he shared a record opening stand of 175 with Thomas Gogarty who scored 42 until he was bowled by Tim Cook.

Crawley kept a good spirit as they toiled against the Bosham openers and the breakthrough by Cook led to a trickle of wickets as Bosham looked to push on and set a high runs target. Luke Haddow was bowled by Hassan Khan for a sprightly 16 and the centurian Glennie was finally dismissed with an excellent run out. 

The home team persisted and claimed four more wickets fell before Thomas Phizackerley called time on the innings and declared on 231 for 5 after 33 overs.

In reply Ellen Burt played a fantastic unbeaten innings of 59 as Crawley battled hard to earn a draw. She was very ably assisted first by Ashit Patel (24) as they added 53 runs for the second wicket and then Matthew Leese (20) as they added 44 for the fourth wicket.

Bosham fought hard all afternoon to make breakthroughs and started the innings with a run out from Ben Farrell in the second over. Luke Spencer was the pick of the Bosham bowlers taking 3 for 10 in his four over spell.

Burt taught an inexperienced Bosham team a lesson in how to play solid defensive innings as she earned her team valuable points. The Bosham captain and his players will have learned valuable lessons in how best to take wickets when a side attempts to play for a draw.

The Festival continues on Tuesday when Bosham host Goring-By-Sea at Oaklands Park.

Bishop's Waltham II vs Bosham - 14 August 2010

posted 16 Aug 2010, 03:06 by Martin Farrell

Bosham won their tenth game of the season as they beat second place rivals Bishop’s Waltham in a tense and rain effected match. 

Jon Stevenson and Martin Farrell took 4 and 3 wickets respectively as Bishop’s Waltham were restricted to just 141 runs in their innings. The opening wicket of Andy Savage was taken, with the score on 31, when Tom Gilliatt had him caught behind. This was then only reward for an accurate and lively opening spell from Gilliatt and George Barratt. 

After a short interruption for rain there was a turning point in the game when Barratt brilliantly scooped a catch at square leg to dismiss Ian Tinson off the bowling of Stevenson. This sparked a collapse and Stevenson along with Farrell reduced Bishop’s Waltham from 70 for 2 to 95 for 8 with a spell of seam bowling that made the most of the conditions. 

A late flurry of runs from Kevin Bowen, who scored an unbeaten 44, gave the home side some hope as they closed the innings on a below par 141. The rain interruption meant that Bosham would be chasing a revised target of 130 from 36 overs to win. 

When Duncan Barratt and Tom Gilliatt were dismissed early by James Mitchell neither team were in the ascendency but when Sam Gilliatt held out to a catch at long-on by Andy Savage, Bosham found themselves wavering at 56 for 3. 

Bishop’s Waltham knew that another couple of wickets would make them favourites but some determined batting from Dave Maclean and Sudath Patabendi, who between them added 44 for the fourth wicket, thwarted the bowlers and the momentum swung back in Bosham’s favour. 

With just 30 needed and 7 wickets in hand Mitchell and Phillip Dalton were reintroduced into the attack and in quick succession bowled Maclean and Patabendi respectively. The pair then took three more wickets as Bosham slowly crept towards their target. 

With the match firmly in the balance George Barratt seemed totally unfazed by the pressure and calmly produced an innings of 10 not out to give Bosham a two wicket victory.

HCL-SE2: Bosham vs United Services Portsmouth III - 7 August 2010

Tom Gilliatt took 4 for 39 and John Barnett 3 for 5 as Bosham comfortably beat United Services to claim their ninth win of the season.

Gilliatt opened the bowling supported by Jon Stevenson and made regular inroads in to the United Services batting line-up by clean bowling Aaron Cox (10), Shane Lawrence (17) and John Gray (15). His final wicket of the match came when he trapped Graham Ingliss leg before for a duck. Although United Services were not scoring many runs they were riding their luck and frustrating Bosham when at 121 for 6 the players left the field for a rain break. 37 overs had been bowled.

When played resumed after a 16 minute interval a single over from John Barnett lifted the Bosham spirits as he took three wickets to leave United Services nine down. Sam Gilliatt took the final wicket of the innings when Rob Cusack was caught at mid-on by Martin Farrell. United Services were all out for 129 and Bosham claimed maximum bowling bonus points.

A quirk of Hampshire League Rules left Bosham frustrated as they easily chased down the revised total of 120 with Dave Maclean top scoring with an unbeaten 39. In normal circumstances additional batting bonus points are available for any wickets in hand when chasing a low score but these are can not be claimed in a rain delayed game. The rule cost Bosham a probable four bonus points. Only time will tell how crucial that could be at the end of the season.

A gutsy innings of 84 from Duncan Barratt helped secure an exciting win for Bosham over division rivals Fair Oak. Barratt battled hard against a Fair Oak bowling attack that was making the most of a lively Botley Recreation Ground wicket. During his innings, Barratt passed the 500 runs for the season milestone.

The match hung in the balance right until the end when the target of 201 was reached, to the delight of Bosham and the despair of Fair Oak, with 8 wickets down and just 7 balls remaining. Until he was out with the score on 168, Barratt had contributed to five crucial partnerships of 25 or more including the fifth wicket partnership where 56 were added with Sam Gilliatt.

When Steve White had Barratt caught at mid-on by James Gradwell the game could have gone either way. George Barratt (10) and Hugh Dodd (16 not out) both played a vital role to ensure that Bosham reached their target. The result means Bosham go above Fair Oak in the league table.

Fair Oak were invited to bat first on a wicket that looked as if it would offer a lot of assistance to the bowlers. Their impressive score of 200 was built around an innings of 56 from the captain James Gradwell and a maiden league 50 from Lloyd Vincent. There were three wickets for Bosham's Tom Gilliatt and two each for George Barratt and Martin Farrell.
