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

Finally, Martley throw the losing monkey off their backs

The firsts were sampling the drinks in the last chance saloon but a chink of light has appeared in the shape of a resounding victory away at lowly Astwood Bank. A well grassed and soft wicket greeted the Martlets but the Banks skipper mystifyingly decided to have a bat. The visitors took to the field with only 10 men, captain Dom Jones sewing up ‘Dick of the Day’ before he had even got on the field having driven to the Astwood Bank main ground and still thinking it was a 1pm start finally entering the arena at 12.50 and having the keeping gloves in his bag. God knows where he’s going to end up next week seeing as Martleys home game is away at Peopleton, he had better leave for the match on Thursday. His very able sub Dan Mayfield snaffled two chances and with other slip catches being held the home side were kept firmly on the back foot by tight bowling, Mark Johnson (4/27) being the pick with George Griffths and Jim Basford taking two apiece. Only two batsmen made it into double figures with Mr Wides contributing 28, got to be one of the highest percentages of a total for a long time.

The tea was a picnic taken in a gazebo indeed the facilities at Astwood are primitive to say the least. Jones and Alec Francis opened the Martlets reply, unfortunately Francis found the oncoming attributes of the female opening bowler too distracting to be bowled for four. Some lusty blows from Dan Johnson (28) soon had the away side on track until he was bowled suffering with what he termed fatigue, can there be a more unfit 19 year old playing the game? Jones (18*) and a rapid 17* from Alexander Basford wrapped up victory to much relief. Have Martley saved their run for safety too late, read next week’s episode to find out

SECONDS WIN AGAIN

Martley Seconds were involved in another thriller, beating West Malvern with the last pair at the wicket.

Home skipper John Owens hit 32 and all of the lower order made contributions as they totalled 155.

Martley skipper Tej Uppal picked up 3 for 13, and Shanawaz Shamim proved Martley’s most successful bowler for the second successive week with an impressive 4 for 34 in 9 overs.

Ashley Jones (34) and Martin Sweet (31) got Martley underway, after James Francis had gone for a duck.

But the middle-order faltered before Jamie King hit 26, but it was the last wicket pair of Uppal and Jai Wickham who saw Martley home.

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!

IMPROVING FACILITIES.

Martley CC is working collaboratively with The Chantry School to make a joint bid to Malvern District Council for funding to build new cricket nets and an artificial cricket pitch at the school. 

If successful, this facility will be used by the school and cricket club to enhance the provision of high quality cricket facilities in the local community. 

Currently neither the club nor school have cricket nets nor an artificial pitch to practice or play competitive cricket in the village. If you could convey support for this project to our local councillors that would be very helpful.
