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.
