posted 13 May 2010, 06:54 by Martin Farrell
Result: Bosham (24pts) beat Bursledon (6pts) by 127 runs

Date: Sat 16th May 2009

Will Gamon inspired Bosham with a man of the match performance scoring 99 with the bat before taking 6 wickets with the ball. Bosham have made a great start to the season and this result takes them to the top of the South-East division Two table.

Gamon went into bat during the tenth with the score on 28. He never looked in trouble as he built a consummate innings that included thirteen fours. With the attacking Duncan Barratt (44) he put on 78 for the second wicket and helped Bosham into a commanding position. His innings ended frustrating one run short of a century when Vicky Maxwell scooped to take a fine diving catch at short mid-on. Some useful contributions from the tail especially George Barratt (19) ensured that Bosham set an imposing target of 210 for the visitors.

Perhaps feeling a little aggrieved at being caught out on 99 by a girl, Gamon ripped into the Bursledon top order with a tenacious spell of bowling. Within 10 over they had been reduced to 28 for 5. Bursledon showed some spirit and resilience with Mocking (14) and Eaton (20) adding some respectability to the Bursledon total before finally being dismissed for 82.
