Burridge vs Bosham scorecard

Bosham continued their excellent season with a crushing defeat of Burridge 4thXI. With 23 points collected to keep pressure on league leaders Netley Sports the game was all over by 5:30pm and the team was heading back to Bosham for some post match analysis in the Berkerely Arms.

Burridge were bowled out for just 95 in 35 overs with Michael Rooke (2), Martin Farrell (2), Joe Gilliatt (3) and Nick Outram (2) sharing the wicket taking duties. Only Thomas (23), Hallett (15) and Laine (13) made it in to double figures for the home side.

Despite Colin Henderson being caught by Harding without troubling the scorers Bosham did not have any trouble chasing down the total with Mark Allen again top scoring with 43 not out. Indeed, it was left to Allen to try and contrive his side maximum points from the day. With Bosham on 94 for 2 and chasing 96 to win if he could hit a six to take the team score to 100 it would earn the team a full seven batting bonus points rather than just six. Despite an excellent effort the ball fell short and crashed through the extra cover boundary for four.
