More news, no ads


East Woodhay were emphatic 80-run winners at Andover 2nd's London Road home.

After captain Joe Lawrance won the toss and chose to bat, openers Adam Barnes and Ben Hummel combined for a fantastic 175-run opening partnership before Barnes was bowled for 91.

Hummel continued on to reach a magnificent 117 not-out alongside Sanjeet Garood (33 not-out) as Woodhay posted 282/2 from their 45 overs.

Andover's batters made a solid start, reaching 77/0, but Woodhay's bowlers soon took control and 10 wickets fell for 135 runs as the hosts slumped to 202 all out.

Barnaby Talbot-Williams, who broke Andover's opening partnership with a smart caught and bowled, finished with figures of 2-35 while Henry Chapman (2-34) and Samuel Clements (2-4) also impressed.

Elsewhere, East Woodhay 2nd were on the wrong end of a 63 run defeat at home to Twyford.

Twyford, winning the toss and batting first, struggled to 185/9 from their 45 overs thanks to good bowling from Woodhay's Oliver Batchelor (4-36), Josh Davis (2-16) and Dylan Teague (2-37).

That proved to be more than enough, however, as Woodhay were skittled for 122 despite a battling 28 from Toby Talbot-Williams.

There was also defeat for Hungerford, who were bowled all-out for a disappointing 143 against Overton.

When captain Mark Westbrook won the toss and elected to bat, he can't have imagined he'd enter the crease with the score 111/7, much less that he'd return to the pavilion four balls later with the score 111/8.

As it was, his side's measly total included just four double figure scores – Al Masbero's 43 the best of them.

Overton then reeled off that total in less than 22 overs with nine wickets to spare to secure a comfortable win.

Kingsclere were another side to struggle with the bat in their defeat to Easton and Martyr Worthy 2nd.

Kingsclere's openers made a confident start with the bat before captain Stephen Hanney (22) was bowled with the score 105/1.

His opening partner, Peter Frith, top scored with 68 but Kingsclere lost three wickets without scoring to slip to 105/4 and then to 228 all-out.

Easton surpassed that total with three wickets to spare, despite the best efforts of Ed Lyle (4-36), to clinch victory.

There was better news for Ashford Hill, who thrashed Littleton and West Hill by 89 runs thanks to some superb bowling.

Jeral Cooper (63) led the way as Ashford Hill reached 203/8 on a challenging wicket at the Littleton Recreation Ground.

The hosts were then bowled all-out for just 114 as Ben Osborne (5-14) claimed an impressive five-fer.

Donnington were seven wicket winners over Overton 2nd at their Berrydown pitch.

Donnington won the toss and put the hosts into bat which proved to be a good decision as Overton limped to 190/5 from their 40 overs.

Donnington ticked that off with relative ease thanks to 71 from opener Iain Dadd and 52 from David Maddocks to secure the win in less than 35 overs.
