    The seniors returned to form with a 86 run victory while the youth season closed with their Presentation & Awards evening.



    Date: 17th August 2019

    Venue: The Memorial Ground

    Toss: Poole Town 2nds

    1st innings: Beaminster 178-8, 45 overs

    2nd innings: Poole Town 2nds 92 ao, 33 overs

    Beaminster returned to winning ways and climbed to second place in the division 2 table after a comprehensive 86 run home victory over Poole Town 2nds. After an uncontested toss, Beaminster were inserted by the visitors. It was a challenging wicket due to heavy rain the proceeding day and a slow outfield. However, the opening batsmen rose to the challenge as they shared a gritty 44 run partnership. Chris Park (23) was the first batsman to be dismissed after a fluent innings. Simon Jones (29) then shared a 61 run partnership with skipper Ross Baker as they played determinedly and ran well between the wickets. Daniel Swift (18) continued the good work as Beaminster reached 150 and gained their third batting point. Despite not hitting a boundary until the 26th over, Ross Baker (61) remained until the 42 over when he was dismissed attempting to accelerate the score. This sparked a collapse as 4 further wickets were lost before Beaminster gained their fourth batting point and closed on a competitive total of 178-8 from their allocation. Bowler's Daniel Swift (3-27) and Nick Hollely (1-15) both bowled superb opening spells to put Beaminster in control of the game as Poole's chase started poorly. After 12 overs the away team limped to 27-3 before Ross Baker (5-19) and Simon Jones (1-10) continued the good work as the home team pushed for victory. They both bowled tight lines and extracted bounce from the pitch. Despite a late cameo from K Subramanion (34 not out) Poole were dismissed in the 33rd over for 92. Six catches were taken and 4 batsmen were bowled as Beaminster completed an excellent bowling performance

    3rd August 2019

    VENUE: The Memorial Ground

    TOSS: Beaminster

    Puddletown: 187-8, 45 overs

    Beaminster: 86 ao, 27 overs†

    Beaminster succumbed to a heavy 101 run defeat in their vital top of the table encounter with Puddletown.After inserting the visitors opening bowler Nick Hollely (3-43) made early breakthroughs to put Beaminster in a promising position (57-4). However the game swung in Puddletowns favour as A Weir (53) shared two important middle order partnerships for the fifth and sixth wicket. Beaminsters fielders had a day to forget as numerous chances were spilt. Although some of the bowling was economical, Beaminster failed to gain maximum bowling points as Puddletown closed on 187-8 from 45 overs. In response, Beaminsters top order was blown away by an excellent hostile spell of bowling from Callum Chaldicott (6-21). The batsmen had no answer to the opening bowler's pace and bounce as only Ross Baker (15) managed double figures. At 46-7 Beaminsters hopes of victory were in tatters. The tail ensured some respectability but Nick Hollely (11) and Dave Persey (16) could not prevent a heavy defeat for Beaminster as they were dismissed in the 27th over, a defeat that dents their promotion chances.

    Next game....

    The seniors look to bounce back as they travel to Shaftesbury this Saturday
