    Result:Beaminster won by 8 wickets

    Man of the Match:Chris Park

    Beaminster maintained their position at the top of League 2 with a comfortable 8 wicket victory at Charlton Down.

Ross Baker (3-23) continued the good work as the home team's top order were all dismissed for single figure scores. From 89-8, Charlton Down's late order staged a recovery as they closed on 149 with the final wicket falling to the last delivery of the innings. Dave Persey (2-26) and Nick Hollely (1-21) were the other wicket takers while Swift took 3 slip catches. Beaminsters chase started poorly as they lost Ross Baker in the second over. However, Chris Park (63 not out) and Ali Crawford (33) played superbly to rebuild the innings. After the second wicket was lost, Daniel Swift (40 not) played aggressively to finish the game in style hitting 7 boundaries including 2 maximums.

    Date:16th June 2019

    Venue:Poole Park

    Scores 1st innings:Beaminster: 195-8, 45 overs

    Scores 2nd innings:Poole 2nds: 154 ao, 38.5 overs

    Result:Beaminster won by 41 runs

    Man of the Match:Will Moss

    Beaminster earned a hard fought 41 run victory at Poole Park. After both teams agreed to play the game despite the heavy overnight and morning rain, Poole won the toss and elected to field. On a damp pitch, they were immediately rewarded when opener Rich Runyard was dismissed in the first over. However, an excellent 73 run second wicket partnership between Ali Crawford (34) and Ross Baker rescued the visitors and put them in a strong position. The good work was continued by Chris Park (24) who played freely and accelerated the run rate as the pitch began to dry out. Baker was eventually dismissed in the 30th over for a determined 44. Daniel Swift (23) and Lewis Keenan (28) both played fluently before falling when looking well set. The innings eventually closed on 195-8 as late order wickets were lost when trying to gain full batting points. During the chase, Daniel Swift (4-27) produced his best bowling performance for the club. He bowled unchanged and put the top order batsmen under enormous pressure. The highlight was a brilliant hat trick between his 6th and 7th over. After bowling two batsmen he won an LBW decision before being mobbed by his team mates. From 78-7, the Poole middle order batsmen staged a determined fight back as the 8th wicket pair shared a 62 run partnership. However, after a tight spell of bowling from Ross Baker (1-23) and Ali Crawford (0-16), William Moss (3-30) mopped up the tail to present Beaminster with their third victory in a row.

    Date:8th June 2019

    Venue:The Memorial Ground

    Scores 1st innings:Beaminster: 146 ao, 38 overs

    Scores 2nd innings:Shaftesbury: 73 ao, 26.1 overs

    Result:Beaminster won by 73 runs

    Man of the Match: Ali Crawford

    An inspired bowling performance galvanised Beaminster to a 73 run victory against Shaftesbury at the Memorial Ground. Despite a below par batting display, the home team still prevailed thanks to the excellence of the four inform bowlers. After being inserted, a solid platform was built by openers Ross Baker (18) and Luke King (30) who shared a 51 run partnership. However, after a brief rain delay, wickets tumbled as the pitch became unpredictable and the home team batsman failed to adapt. Following a 38 run partnership between Daniel Swift (18) and Simon Jones (19) the remaining batsman collapsed to a disappointing total of 146. During the chase, Daniel Swift (2-8) and Simon Jones (0-11) exerted pressure from the start. Backed up by eager fielding, Swift bowled a hostile spell and was rewarded with 2 superbly executed wickets. First change bowlers Ross Baker (3-18) and Ali Crawford (5-34) continued the excellent work and reaped the rewards of the earlier pressure. Ross Baker bowled the dangerous A Williams who played well for his 32 before Crawford mopped up the tail to complete a brilliant bowling performance and move Beaminster up to third in the table.

    Date:2nd June 2019

    Venue:Winfrith

    Scores 1st innings:Puddletown 156 ao, 40 overs

    Scores 2nd innings:Beaminster 157-4, 29.5 overs

    Result:Beaminster won by 6 wickets

    Man of the Match:Luke King

    Beaminster recorded their second win of the season with an excellent display at Puddletown despite several senior players being unavailable. After an uncontested toss, stand in Captain Richard Runyard took advantage of a very green wicket as he took the first 3 wickets to leave the hosts on 21-3 after 8 overs. He was fully supported by Daniel Swift (9-2-15-1) as he beat the oppositions bat on numerous occasions. First change bowler Simon Jones then came on and he picked up 3 wickets from his 9 overs. Oli Bareham took a well-executed run out but Puddletown skipper Adam Barrett batted superbly for his 42 with support from Tom Blair (25). The key wicket of Barrett eventually fell to the bowling of Ali Crawford from a sharp catch by Adam Moss as wickets then kept on falling to leave the hosts on 108-9. However a last wicket partnership of 48 frustrated Beaminsters bowlers as the score passed 150. Oli Bareham then took the final wicket as the hosts innings closed on 156.

    In reply Beaminsters openers Ali Crawford (31) and Luke King (50) started positively by hitting numerous boundaries as they put 89 on for the 1st wicket inside 15 overs. Luke passed 50 in his first innings for the club and once both openers departed, Daniel (40) came in and continued where they left off as he kept hitting the ball to the boundary. Despite losing another 2 wickets Beaminster reached their target in the 30th over to win by 6 wickets.

    Date:25th May 2019

    Venue:The Memorial Ground

    Scores 1st innings:Beaminster 257-8, 45 overs

    Scores 2nd innings:Blandford 259-6, 43.1 overs

    Result:Blandford won by 3 wickets

    Man of the Match:Daniel Swift

    Beaminster suffered a devastating 3 wicket defeat at home to 10 man Blandford. The home team were unable to defend a total of 257 after being inserted. Daniel Swift continued his remarkable batting form with a superb 135 not out. He was the main stay of the innings as wickets fell steadily at the other end. Opener Ross Baker (33) shared the highest partnership of 91 for the third wicket before Swift started to dominate the Blandford bowlers. He struck 7 maximums mostly straight and ensured the home team achieved not only maximum batting points but a high total. At the interval the Beaminster team felt confident they could achieve victory but the carefree Blandford top order batsmen produced a hard hitting onslaught that few spectators will ever forget. After a brutal 89 run opening partnership, skipper A Sullivan hit an incredible 176 not out. His batting with the tail was remarkable as he farmed the strike and refused to run singles. For 10 overs he dealt in nearly boundaries (23) . Blandford recovered from a mid innings wobble when Ross Baker took 2 hard earned wickets before Sullivan chanced his arm. Beaminster could have few complaints as several chances were spilt through sloppy fielding. None of the bowlers escaped punishment as the crowd were entertained by an afternoon of boundary hitting by the two inform batsmen.

    Date: 18th May 2019

    Venue:Parley

    Scores 1st innings:Parley 2nds: 143-4, 38 overs

    Scores 2nd innings:Beaminster: 15-0, 4 overs

    Result:Game abandoned

    Man of the Match: Aidey Phillips

    Report:It was frustration all round at Parley as the game was abandoned shortly into Beaminsters innings due to persistent rain. After an uncontested toss, Parley batted first and were immediately on the back foot due to excellent opening spells by Nick Hollely (1-22) and Daniel Swift (1-25). They removed the opening pair before the middle order batsmen battled determinedly to rebuild the innings. However the change bowlers continued to build pressure and kept the scoring rate down. Ross Baker (1-33) bowled the dangerous M King for 25 while William Moss (1-9) had A Sabbian caught behind for a hard hitting 48 before the heavens opened and players were forced off of the field for an early tea. Although Beaminsters reply started it was soon obvious that conditions were dangerous as play was abandoned after just 4 overs.

    Date: 11th May 2019

    Venue: The Memorial Ground Beaminster

    Scores 1st innings:Cranborne 62 ao, 17.3 overs

    Scores 2nd innings:Beaminster 63-2, 14.4 overs

    Result:Beaminster won by 8 wickets

    Man of the Match: Daniel Swift

    Beaminster recorded an emphatic 8 wicket victory in just two hours in their first home game of the season. 10 man Cranborne were inserted and were immediately on the back foot after a hostile opening spell from Daniel Swift. He beat the bat on numerous occasions and took 3 wickets as the top order floundered. There was also an excellent run out by a direct throw from Adam Moss. Change bowlers Nick Holelly and Ross Baker then combined to mop up the tail as the visitors were dismissed in 17 overs. Beaminsters fielders were also on form with catches for Aidey Phillips, Leo Gurd, Ross Baker and Will Moss. Chris Park ensured the chase was comfortable with a patient 22 not out. Although 2 wickets were lost, Swift continued his good form with the bat as Beaminster cruised to a 8 wicket victory by 3.30pm.

    Date: 4th May 2019

    Venue: Witchampton

    Scores 1st innings:Witchampton 205-8, 45 overs

    Scores 2nd innings:Beaminster 112-6, 45 overs

    Result: Witchampton won by 93 runs

    Man of the Match:Daniel Swift

    Report:

    Despite several senior players being unavailable, Beaminster put up a strong fight against Witchampton. After an uncontested toss, stand in captain Chris Park elected to bowl first. Beaminster started well with Daniel Swift (9-3-16-0) bowling an excellent line and length and the first wicket came in the 4th over when Will Moss trapped M Ashford LBW. Beaminsters change bowlers continued to bowl well with Ade Phillips and Nick Hollely each taking a wicket including an excellent catch from Simon Bareham. However A Crocker (121no) played an excellent innings and guided his team to 200. There were also wickets for Lewis Keenan, Oli James and Oli Bareham, run outs from Nick and Adam Moss and catches from Will, Daniel and Will Murley.

    Beaminsters innings started off steadily as Witchamptons opening bowlers bowled very well. Chris batted well for his 29 but wickets kept falling so Daniel (45no) and Nick (13) batted sensibly, keeping their wickets as S Hibbert bowled a very tight spell. The pair made sure that Beaminster got to 100 on a very slow outfield. At the end Beaminster fell short by 93 runs.
