2nd XI

Date Opponents Location Result
May 5 Steeple Langford Away Won
In Regional Division 2 North West, the second team travelled to Steeple Langford and were inserted on a slow track. Runs were always hard to come by, but Harry Jenkins (21) and Russ Spencer (27) battled hard and a flurry from George Manston at the end saw Farley to 154-9 from their 40 overs – extras contributing 40.
The home side got off to a fast start, with Hughes racing to 31 before he was run out by Matthew Wood. From 54-1, Steeple subsided to the spin of Gary Seymour (3-14) and Ian Swain (5-13). They ended up 81 all out, with Craig Burrows taking the final catch to complete a great start as captain.
May 12Michelmersh & Timsbury IIAwayWon
At Michlemersh, Spencer’s 88 featured 14 boundaries and one six while Anthony Warley added a stylish unbeaten 55 to see Farley to 204-4. The visitors then worked their way through the Michelmersh order, with the wickets shared out. When rain brought the game to an early finish, Michelmersh were 82-8 off 29 overs – well short of the target.
May 19Ashford Hill IIHomeWon
Farley’s second team made it three wins on the bounce, with an emphatic display at home to Ashford Hill II.
After Mike Scrase struck early, and Phil Winslow bowled a tight opening spell, it was debutant Dan Armstrong who did the main damage with the ball, claiming 4-17 in his eight overs. Matthew Wood also struck twice, as the visitors never got out of first gear, finishing on 118-8 in their forty overs. By contrast, Harry Jenkins was in an aggressive mood for Farley, hitting ten fours and five sixes on his way to 84 off just 65 balls. With captain Craig Burrows (30*) keeping him
company, Farley wrapped up the win in the 21st over. They are the only side to have won three games in the division so far, but sit fourth – with a visit to third place Paultons III next week
