MARTLEY CRICKET CLUB
MARTLEY V THE WORCESTER WARRIORS
IMG_5350
Another excellent evening at the Jewry Field with Martley winning off the last ball of the game, thus reversing the result from last season when the Warriors won in the same manner.
Warriors made 125 from their 15 overs, GJ van Veltze top scoring with 33 not out, Jamie Shilcock 20 not out.
Danny Mayfield had the honour of hitting the winning runs after James Ganderton, Alex Basford and Tom Vale had all contributed.
Thanks to everyone for turning up, the ground looked a treat, the Barby was excellent, the raffle was extensive, and the club made a bit of money.
Special thanks to Tom Vale and Jim Basford.
Mike Henley has produced a mass of pictures which can be found on our Flikr page

 NOTE FROM SIMON BUTLER
 This year we haven’t had our usual ‘End of Season’ event but that doesn’t mean to say we haven’t appreciated the commitment the youngsters and yourselves have shown to their local cricket club. I have attached the review which has been posted on the Club website. You will see that Darryl & Julie are stepping down from Friday nights next season so we really do need some ‘fresh blood’ to help us coach and manage the junior training nights and fixtures. If you have any interest at all then we’d be delighted to hear from you and we can offer support and training if you’d like it. If you want to have an initial chat then just send me an email with a contact number and I’ll get back to you asap.

Also do spread the word to any friends and neighbours who have children who want to play cricket. We have a lot of teenagers but we really do need to increase our numbers, particularly between the ages of 8-13, in order to have a big enough squad to enter the County league competitions.
 
Kind Regards
 Simon
 On behalf of MCC Junior Coaches

MARTLEY CRICKET CLUB

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

ADMIRAL RODNEY, BERROW GREEN 

SUNDAY 25TH MARCH AT 5;00 PM.

Lots to be decided including club officers for 2018, captains etc.

IF YOU DON'T COME THEN DON'T MOAN


Martley march to third win in high scoring affair

Indoor result:

Martley 141/5 (VT 36*, Ganderton 29, Flower 28, Sweet 25)
Old Vigs 131/5 (Watt 0-22, VT 1-31, Ganderton 1-24)

Martley win by 10 runs

Martley made it 3 out of 3 despite a valiant run chase by Old Vigornians. Martley won the toss and as ever elected bat. Flower and Ganderton made full use of the late arrival of the last OVs player racing to 49/0 in just 3 overs. 

The appearance of the final OVs player did little to slow the rate as the pair both reached 25 with consummate ease. Ganderton looked particularly easy on the eye angling the ball at will to the gaps. 

The score was an incredible 73 after just 5 overs as new men VT and Martin Sweetsettled in at the crease. The new pair showed no let up and at the end of the 8th over the score was 111 with VT also getting 'back in the hutch' as he reached 25. Sweet followed him a matter of balls later with his best knock of the season, leaving Martley in the unparalleled situation of having all of the top 4 waiting to come back in. Unfortunately this is where the innings stuttered somewhat with the tail taking just 9 runs from overs 10 and 11. 

This led to 5 wickets falling in the last 11 deliveries of the innings as the returning batsman were all run out in a kamikaze fashion. VT was the one undefeated batsman managing to run a '2' off the final ball of the innings despite only hitting the ball a matter of yards! 

141 a great total but OVs dragged the innings back when at one stage 170 did look beyond the distinct realms of possibility.

OVs came out firing and at 51/0 after 4 overs were up with the rate, and suddenly Martley were just starting to get a little nervous. The OVs opening bat hitting 3 boundaries in one Alex Basford over to race to 25. However this platform was stunted following the retirement of the other opening batsmen. 

The first delivery of Simon Van Tongeren's spell saw the first wicket fall, as his strangled appeal was met in the affirmative by the umpire. The ever reliable Stuart Watt followed this up with another good over, Watt not afraid to put the ball 'up there' with his full length, challenging the batsman to drive for the back wall. Watt would finish the most economical bowler on either side with figures of 3-0-22-0.

 Despite this Martley never quite shut the door on the opposition. A stunning Alex Basford run out, off balance with one stump to aim did leave the visitors 2 wickets down but an equation of 39 off the final 3 overs meant it was very much squeaky bum time. VT swung the game back in Martley's favour with an over that went for just 8. Akin to the Martley innings, the last over was high drama which saw 3 wickets fall - 2 simple run outs and a rearrangement of the furniture courtesy of James Ganderton.


Overall a win against a good side, but one that could have been a lot more comfortable that it ended up being.


Man of the Match: Simon Van Tongeren - a key protagonist in the game who excelled with bat and ball.


Martley go again on Monday 5th March when they face Hallow.

Thanks to all who made it to the ground to help with Clubforce Day.

Fair amount of work done, and new fencing around the ground should save a lot of ball-hunting time.

Thanks to the junior members pictured above who bravely stopped the roller from running away!
