    Beaminster 69-2, 9.2 overs
    Beaminster won by 8 wickets

    The Beaminster U15s produced a stunning performance in the final in the final of the West Dorset Cup at Martinstown. After winning the toss, Beaminster inserted the home team who struggled throughout against disciplined and tight bowling. Fergus Rees set the tone by bowling a maiden in the first over. Ben Leather continued to exert pressure at the other end as both the opening bowlers executed their plans brilliantly by bowling to their field. When the first change bowlers were introduced, Martinstown had not scored a boundary and the opening batsmen were growing increasingly frustrated. William Moss took full advantage; by bowling an immaculate line and length he took 3 wickets for just 8 runs in an amazing 4 over spell. All of the Martinstown batsmen struggled to score freely as the Beaminster fielders defended the boundaries and saved the singles. During the middle overs, Adam Moss took 2 wickets in his short spell. Alex Payne produced a brilliant performance behind the stumps including a lightening stumping and numerous athletic stops. Only 2 byes were conceded throughout the entire innings. Ben Leather (2-18) and Fergus (1-13) returned to take further wickets before Martinstown closed on an under par score of 68-8 from 20 overs.

    In contrast to Martinstown, Beaminster's innings started positively as Lewis Keenan and William Moss put the fielders under pressure by running well between the wickets and picking up numerous singles. As the bowlers strived for wickets, loose deliveries were punished as Lewis smashed boundaries to all corners of the field. After Lewis was dismissed for 24, Toby Pattemore continued in a similar fashion by scoring freely. When he was out unselfishly seeking another boundary, it was left to Ben Leather and Will (24 not out) to calmly score the winning runs for an emphatic 8 wicket victory.
