With a host of absentees, the Tuesday B team were according to Ben Arnold, an ‘Eclectic mix’. Sam Larbelastier went first over, but Julian Drake (34) and Rich White (21) righted the ship, before Ryan O’Connor (26 not) and Luca Roberts (17), both coming in to the side at the last minute, pushed the score on to 128-7 from their 18. Lyndhurst and Ashurst started slowly against Arnold (1-18) and Terry Harrison (2-22) and never really threatened finishing on 116-7. Lewis Oliver 3-13 was the pick.
Bramshaw welcomed the Southern League's Langley Manor in the National Village Cup. After winning the toss Langley batted first and an excellent bowling and fielding display from the home team resulted in them being bowled out for 201. Bailey Loveless bowled the ball of the century to remove the Langley Captain with Kaushal Patel picking up a couple of key wickets and David Streather bowling beautifully at the end for 3/22. In reply Bramshaw were in trouble losing 3 quick wickets to the Langley openers before classy Zane D'Monte & vexatious Joe Coombs put together a crucial stand of 112 putting the home team in control. Terry Tibbs Harrison took the game away from Langley with a rapid 39 before a mini collapse made the game interesting. Kaush Patel kept his calm to see the team home and into the next round.
The ten man 3’s took a pounding on the plastic at Wilton, but emerged with ten points after a creditable fightback. Wilton were all out for 300, with Jack Booth (4-21) debutant Ben Chandler (4-63) and Tom Mason (2-51) the wicket takers, as they picked up maximum bowling points. The 3’s replied solidly looking to bank some batting points and Jack Booth and Dan Eckton (19)put on 50 for the first wicket, and Booth and Wayne Eckton (34) added 86 for the second before Booth went for a career best 68. The fifth batting point arrived in the 39th over as the visitors closed on 157-5.

Bramshaw won in the first round of the National Village cup at Longparish. Batting first, Andy Hart anchored the innings of 230 scoring an unbeaten 115 supported by Simon Booth. In reply Longparish got off to a flyer before Jamie Martin and Joe Coombs pegged them back with some good bowling. The last wicket fell to a Bailey Loveless runout. The team are into the second round next Sunday where they will play Langley Manor at home.
3rds WIN
The three’s recovered from a precarious 64-6 to post 191-7 at Nomansland. The first ball of the season saw Jonty Loveless trudge back to his hutch, and apart from George Gray’s lively 34, the thirds had lost the first 6 wickets by the nineteenth over. Harry Burnham (41) and Chris Hewlins repaired the damage with a stand of 85, and Hewlins (63 not) then added another unbroken 42 with the unorthodox Tom Mason who finished on 24 not out. Whiteparish two’s started slowly and Bramshaw picked up wickets steadily and the visitors closed on 128-9 after their 40 overs. Jack Booth took 4-21, John Murray 2-10, and one each for Dec Mason, Jonty Loveless, and Dan Eckton.
