    It has been a frustrating week for the juniors with multiple cancellations due to the weather but the seniors go marching on with their third straight win.



    Away to Poole Town 2nds

    Date: 16th June 2019

    Venue: Poole Park

    Beaminster: 195-8, 45 overs

    Poole Town 2nds: 154 ao, 38.5 overs

    Beaminster won by 41 runs

    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.

    Speaking to Echosport, Baker said: It was tough but we fought well and its a vital win for us.

    Early on it was pretty wet and we had to really fight hard at the top of the innings. I was quite impressed with the way we rebuilt after a shaky start. Everyone got starts and batted well but we would have liked to have got full batting points, but its still a good performance.

    On Swifts display, Baker added: Hes bowled well throughout the season and he got his just rewards with a hattrick, it was fantastic, two clean bowled and an lbw. That put us on the front foot.

    Next game....

    The seniors next game is a local derby away to Charlton Down. This promises to be a close and keenly fought game between two evenly matched teams. Beaminster will be eager to avenge recent performances at the ground after two poor batting displays. Before the start, Jack Douch will be presenting the team the Community Award for services to cricket from the 2018 season.

    The Ladies team have their second round of League games this Sunday, away against Winton. It is impossible for them to finish less than 6th in the County so regardless of the result it is a massive achievement for the Women's team. Training continues on Fridays from 6.30 - 7.30pm.

    Date: 17th June

    Venue: Beaminster

    Martinstown 108 - 3

    Beaminster 62 - 2

    Beaminster lost a tough game against a good Martinstown side.Wickets were shared between Harry Caddy, Sonny Wild and a quick thinking run out.

    Runs were made by Daniel White (31 retired) and Rudi Franklin-Whybrow (10) who batted for 9 overs to make a good first wicket stand.

    For a team just starting out with 6 new players this season, this was a very promising second game together.

    A special thank you was made by the Martinstown coach at the end of the game as we had to rotate a player to help them field. He was very pleased with the attitude of our players and appreciated the way they enthusiastically helped out.

    Next game: no game for the U11s next week.


    Unfortunately both sessions were lost to the weather last weekend. Hopefully both will return this weekend!


    Beaminster Cricket Club will be running a food and drink stand at the Manor Event on Sunday 30th June. If you can spare an hour or two to help run the BBQ please let Ross know on ark.wright@virgin.net.
