Bibury win se­cures sec­ond for Barns­ley

Gloucestershire Echo - - SPORT -

WITH the Cain & Fuller CDCA ti­tle al­ready de­cided Barns­ley Beeches sealed the run­ners-up spot with a dom­i­nant win over Bibury.

The Barns­ley top three pro­duced the goods as Yo­han Dar­mathileka (62), Me­hul Pa­tel (43) and An­drew Walker (47) all scored heav­ily.

Bibury re­sponded thanks to Char­lie Robin­son (5-34) and Chris Birts (3-26) but it was too late to pre­vent the hosts post­ing 226-9.

Bibury, need­ing a win to se­cure their Di­vi­sion One sta­tus, started their re­sponse badly as Josh Odom (4-31) ran through their top order.

Ali Carman (35) stead­ied the ship but wick­ets from Akalanka Udara (3-30) and Yo­han Dar­mathileka (2-16) meant that the Bibury in­nings limped to 139 all out.

Long­bor­ough & Sez­in­cote en­sured their Di­vi­sion One sta­tus with a sec­ond com­pre­hen­sive win over cham­pi­ons Oak­sey in as many weeks.

Oak­sey strug­gled to con­tain an im­pres­sive home at­tack as Josh New­bould (3-22), Luke Mc­donah (3-23) and Carl Luker (2-34) took wick­ets at reg­u­lar in­ter­vals.

Tom Cook (35) and Bill Woot­ten (29) did their best to build a to­tal but 129 all out was never go­ing to be enough and Long­bor­ough had lit­tle dif­fi­culty in knock­ing off the runs.

Mc­donah (50) capped a fine all round per­for­mance with sup­port from the solid John Mut­saars (36*).

Two wick­ets in two balls to vet­eran Ken Lane (2-30) brought Josh New­bould (39*) to the crease and he fin­ished the game quickly by hit­ting seven fours and a six to reach the tar­get at 132-2 in only 20 overs.

South Cer­ney fin­ished their sea­son strongly with a big win over Oakridge.

Open­ers Gar­rick Chivers (120*) and Jay Rus­sell (50) did the dam­age as the hosts reached 217-4 with Mark Rob­bins (3-39) the pick of the visit­ing bowlers.

The Oakridge re­sponse started badly as Sam Cat­ter­all (2-15) took early wick­ets, fol­lowed was a steady pro­ces­sion of dis­missals with Steve Rob­bins (55) hold­ing things to­gether.

No other bats­man reached dou­ble fig­ures as Chris Wear­ing (2-5), Chivers (2-13) and Craig O’keefe (2-38) saw Oakridge col­lapse to 104 all out.

Aven­ing & Cher­ing­ton have work to do to avoid rel­e­ga­tion af­ter they lost to Minety & North­leach.

A de­cent sec­ond wicket part­ner­ship be­tween Tom Red­path (37) and Jay Rich­ings (24) put the hosts in a good po­si­tion.

The in­tro­duc­tion of Ian Wal­lace (5-27) trans­formed the game as he broke the part­ner­ship and took sev­eral more to pre­cip­i­tate a col­lapse.

Stu­art Hobbs (2-18) also took key wick­ets as the hosts were bowled out for 107 in the 33 rd over.

Minety also found bat­ting dif­fi­cult but Tony Gard­ner (45*) held things to­gether and had sup­port from Stu­art Hobbs (23).

Good spells from Jay Rich­ings (3-12) and P Carter (2-16) could not pre­vent Minety & North­leach reach­ing the tar­get with nine balls to spare.
