Bournville Cricket Club


Sheldon Marlborough v Bournville Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 01 Jul 2012 at 2.00pm
Bournville Cricket Club Won 4-1 via bowl out.

Match report Bournville arrived at a very wet, soggy, moist and damp Sheldon ground where it was apparent no play was possible. Due to the format of the competition, a winner was required so a bowl off ensued.
Bournville were victorious 4-1 with Jack White and Alex Bullivant striking once and James 'Don' Beech hitting twice. Joe Cherry was the unfortunate man to miss the stumps.

With the game done and dusted within 15 minutes, 6 of the team decided that an afternoon of mini golf was to suffice as the days entertainment. Cherry, Bullivant, Budden, Busby, Perry and golf pro and favourite on the day Beech made the short trip from the Gun Barrels to Cannon Hill Park. The Green's were deceptively fast with Rob Perry falling behind early due to the tricky water hazard 2nd hole and hitting out of bounds on the 3rd. Mike Busby was the surprise early pace setter by judging the lay and pace very well. Favourite Don Beech was hot on his heels after the front 9, and 'Coco' Cherry in the hunt a few shots back.

The back 9 provided many up's and down's, with the top 3 battling out for the win and Bullivant and Budden jostling in just behind. Bullivant pulled a hole in one on a tricky 15th, with Budden then hitting 8 on the 16th to choke and allow his opponent clear ground. Perry had tried to make a late surge, but the damage was already done even though he completed an impressive back 9. The top 3 again changed with Cherry taking a smart lead after Busby let a 5 shot lead disappear, and Don Beech unfortunately unable to capitalise. Cherry made a hash of the 17th with 6 while Beech and Busby managed it in 2, leaving a straight shootout between Beech and Busby for victory on the 18th, with Beech leading by 1. Beech was able to hold the challenge off as he and Busby halved the hole, for Beech to take victory and jubilant celebrations agonisingly close to the course record of 47, with his magnificent 48.
