MARTLEY CRICKET CLUB
 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

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


Here is the link to Mikes website, he is a cracking snapper and comes highly recommended by Martley CC and the Warriors.

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!

Final Day Defeat at 5 Ways

You would not think you had driven 15 miles up the road as Martley swapped a bone dry square for a very soft ground at Old Edwardians. With visiting captain Dom Jones still in bed at the toss nursing a hangover Martley decided to bat and entertain the away support (Dan Mayfield and Ian James) but at 47 for 8 the cavalier approach was not proving too successful, indeed a brisk 24 from Simon VanTongeren the water cress farmer was the only reason the Martlets posted an all out score of 86, ambitious strokes being the downfall of most batsmen. Home bowler James East taking a career best 7/32. With what proved later to be the worst tea of the season not being ready the players decided to return to the field and those Johnson boys were at it again having the home side reeling at 19 for 5 but with A Ali (25) holding things together 5 Ways made steady progress the last wobble when they were 73 for 8 but managed to squeak home without further loss. Mark finishing with 5/50 and Dan Johnson 2/19, with Division 3 status secured the previous week defeat was not too hard to bear.
At the season’s start I would have settled for maintaining our place in Div 3 but it was a mighty struggle at the end and a position we should have never been in, hopefully as individuals we have learnt something and play smarter cricket at the important times next season. We missed some key players but hopefully with their return and maybe a new face or two we can push up the league next season. Summers highlights Tom Vale’s maiden ton in the defeat of Himbleton, managing to declare in a win/lose game chasing, there’s two maybe we could have a top ten, suggestions.

 SECONDS END WITH A LOSS

 The wheels come off the Dinky Does! After 30 overs the Twos had restricted Kiddy to 100-5 (inc. a crackerjack catch from Ash Jones).

Then the 'teflon hands' returned and chances were spilled. Some players went walk about, drifted in from Jim's stunning electric blue boundary line, leaving gaps for the Kiddy Kids to hit into - Suddenly the 200 was up!

The King's tea tasted great but the mood in the dressing room was morose and SB tried to gas himself in the fridge!. Could the batters redeem the situation?

Well the short answer is no!

As first one and then another succumbed to the temptation to hit the off-spinner out of the park.

To be fair the Kiddy Kids took some stunning catches, just inside Jim's blue line, and the home side looked down and out at 70-7.

The tail wagged a bit and doubled the score but Tej's prod to short-mid wicket brought the season to a disappointing end.

However, all in all,10 wins and a top half finish represent a decent season for the Dinkies.

Frequently a team of Dads and lads, the youngsters have done well.

They now just need a bit more self-confidence and belief when things aren't going our way.

Bring on 2018!
