More news, no ads


East Woodhay secured an emphatic 10 wicket win at Wherwell to keep the pressure on the Division 2 leaders.

Wherwell won the toss and elected to bat – at 45/0, that looked to be a good decision.

However in-form Richard Dando struck twice in one over which then precipitated a dramatic batting collapse.

Alan Williams (2-32), George Walters (1-31) and Samuel Clements (1-19) joined Dando (3-27) in ripping through the middle order before Henry Chapman (2-0) picked up the final two wickets in his first over as Wherwell were all-out for a dismal 113.

Woodhay's batsmen needed less than 24 overs to win the game without losing a wicket – openers Adam Barnes (50) and Ben Hummel (59) both made unbeaten half-centuries.

Elsewhere, Hungerford were on the wrong end of a 10 wicket defeat against Hursley Park 2nd in Division 3 North.

Much like Wherwell, Hungerford were left to rue winning the toss and choosing to bat.

Hungerford were bowled out for 175 – opener Spencer Annetts (91), made more than half their runs.

By the time Annetts was out Hungerford were 164/6 and could only add 11 runs for their final four wickets in an innings that included six scores of less than five.

Hungerford's bowlers proved far less effective than those of Hursley as the home side reached 176/0 in just 30 overs.

Kingsclere were emphatic nine wicket winners over Crown Taverners in Division 4 North.

Kingsclere made a fast start with the ball, three wickets for Harry Murtagh (3-26) and one for Terry Kreysa (1-47) restricting Crown Taverners to 37/4.

Daniel Jones (4-36) picked up four middle order wickets as Crown Taverners slumped to 141/9.

A tenth wicket stand of 75 helped Crown Taverners post 216/9 from their 45 overs, but even that proved comfortable for Kingsclere's batters.

Peter Frith and captain Stephen Hanney combined for an opening stand of 156 before Frith was trapped lbw for a fine 82.

Daniel Jones wasted no time in smashing 43 from 32 balls as Kingsclere secured victory with nine wickets and 10 overs to spare – Hanney finished unbeaten on 68.

Ashford Hill are just four points behind Kingsclere following an impressive 114 run win over Ropley.

Ashford Hill, having won the toss, posted 245/7 from their 45 overs thanks to 67 from opener Ollie Williams and an unbeaten 70 from Wayne Good.

Ropley were then skittled for 131 in a disappointing innings that included three ducks and a further three single figure scores.

David Lyons (3-26) and Aidan Greenway (3-13) were the pick of Ashford Hill's bowlers with three wickets each.

East Woodhay 2nd enjoyed a three wicket win over Odiham and Greywell 2nd.

Josh Davis finished with figures of 3-33 and there were two wickets apiece for Simon Rutt and Mark Chapman.

With the bat, opener Oliver Batchelor set the tone with a positive 52 before Rutt (46) and Joe Sheridan (18 not out) steered them over the line.

Tadley restricted Aldershot to 200/6 from their 40 overs thanks to good bowling from Ian Pearson (2-34) and Jos Hunter (2-16).

Captain Matt Stead top scored with 47 for the visitors and Tom Minshull added a crucial run-a-ball 33 not out as Tadley secured an important win with two wickets to spare.
