BOSBURY won this home Marches League division four match on Saturday against Burghill by 10 wickets.

Bosbury skipper Steve Davies opted to field and the decision was vindicated in the first over when Steve Davies had Burghill opener P Bailey caught brilliantly at first slip by Luke Ledbury for 0.

Davies followed-up in the next over to remove the other opener Townsend, bowled for one.

N Box scored four boundaries quite quickly but Mark Wadley had found his rhythm, and he struck in the sixth over to remove Box, bowled for 16. In his next over, Wadley bowled Breeze for three, and in his next over, Blandford edged to slip, where Luke Ledbury did well to parry the ball in the air and Darren Cooke made excellent ground to make the catch and Burghill were 25-5.

Steve Davies nipped in to bowl E Oliver a few overs later for one, then Wadley picked up his fourth wicket when Gillespie was caught by Daffin at point for one.

Biggs added a few before he was bowled by Dave Taylor for three in Taylor's first over, with the score now 58-8. John Terry played well supporting Olivier, as they added more runs to reach 75 before Terry was bowled by Darren Cooke for seven. Then G Pennington played a dogged innings at number 11, scoring 17no as the last pair added 28 before Olivier was out finally for a creditable 37, bowled by the returning Steve Davies, who finished with figures of 4-19.

In reply, Bosbury openers Dave Taylor and Merv Carless set out carefully in the first few overs, playing themselves in.

Taylor then began to strike the ball to the boundary with regularity, though he was dropped once behind the wicket.

Needing only two runs per over, Bosbury were soon progressing at five per over, with Carless playing a steady supporting role in hitting 18no, and Taylor reaching an excellent 50, just before he struck the winning runs with his eleventh boundary to finish on 54no.

The ten-wicket win gives Bosbury maximum points as they aim to consolidate their position at the top of the table.
