Date Opponents Location Result
May 5StockbridgeHomeWon
At 30-4, stand-in skipper Paul Roberts was ruing his decision to bat first, but the experienced pair of Craig De Weymarn and Jon Burton calmed the nerves. Beginning steadily, the pair took the score to
145 at the 35 over mark, working the ball into gaps and running hard. De Weymarn then pushed the accelerator, hitting some effortless drives. Having add 173, Burton finally fell for a hard-working 46, but with Manny Gurung for company, DeWeymarn continued in blistering fashion to an unbeaten 138. Farley finished on an imposing 246-5.
Gurung then bowled a sharp opening spell with no reward, while Jake Hand snagged Stockbridge opener Foord, well caught in the deep. Jonty Cooke and Neil Rose looked to build a platform, but
found few loose offerings from the Farley attack. As Cooke sought to force the pace, he lifted Sam Waters to long-on, falling for 17.
Waters then began to turn the screw, trapping Aaron Burton in front and then inducing a sharp nick which was well taken at slip by Geoff Ramsey. Waters turned catcher, taking a comfortable chance at
mid-off to remove Rose, and then enjoyed a direct hit as Tiwari went for a brave single. He then finished the game in style, wrapping up the tail to claim 6-15 as Stockbridge were all out for 92.
May 12Paultons IIHomeWon
Farley were delighted to win the toss and bowl first. Manny Gurung and Geoff Ramsey immediately settled into an excellent rhythm, and Ramsey who made the breakthroughs courtesy of two good catches. Phil Owen also found conditions to his liking, grabbing two scalps with late swing, and when Sam Waters claimed the prize wicket of Paultons keeper Harris for 0, the visitors were 30-5 after 16 overs. Scott Dawes and Paultons skipper Andy Collins staged a recovery, adding 65 before the returning Gurung had Collins well caught for 31. In his next over, Gurung removed Dawes for 48 and then swept through the tail, finishing with 4-33. Ramsey claimed 3-15 as Paultons were dismissed for 131 with 10 overs to spare.
Farley’s response got off to the worst possible start, with both openers falling in the first over. Andy Coveney looked in decent touch, but was bowled by a beautiful slower ball from Chris Dunn (4-27) as Farley slumped to 41-5. Manny Gurung led the recovery, waiting patiently for anything loose on his way to 44. His ally in a pivotal sixth wicket stand of 54 was Sam Waters (19), but both fell in quick succession to leave Farley at 98-8. Owen (13*) joined Jake Hand and the pair added a nerve-jangling 30 to bring Farley to the brink before Hand fell. But with four to get, extras played their part – a wide sealing Farley’s win.
May 19EllinghamAwayLost
Farley’s first team stumbled to a 27 run defeat at Ellingham. Electing to field first, Farley began steadily, but it was change bowlers Sam Waters and Jake Hand who began to do some damage. Waters struck first and bowled 26 deliveries before conceding a run, finishing
with 1-18 off his nine. Hand settled into a teasing loop and claimed 3-29. But opener Sean Leadbetter (81) was still there, and added a pivotal 99 for the fifth wicket with Charlie Pierson. Both fell in quick succession, but Ellingham scrambled to 189-8. The home attack settled into a good rhythm as Farley’s brittle top order failed again. At 29-4, Jon Burton (45) joined Andy Coveney and the pair steadily rebuilt. Coveney looked in fine touch, stroking 11 boundaries in his 58 before nicking off. Geoff Ramsey then joined Burton but both fell in quick succession as Farley tried to up the rate. Ellingham seamer Penycate ripped through the tail, and Farley were all out for 162.
