HWCC Weekly Results Round-up

Saturday 1s vs Andover CC 1st XI, SPL Div 1

Hartley win - Andover 272 ao off 45.1 overs.  Hartley 276-3 off 48.1 overs.  Aaron Wivell 116, Jack Hersh 80.

Saturday 2s vs South Newton 1st XI, HCL County Div 3

Sunday 2s vs Bagshot CC [Friendly]
Hartley win - Bagshot 187 ao off 39.2 overs.  Hartley 191-4 off 35.5 overs.  Mark Boston 79*, Pete Martin 5 catches & 3 stumpings.

U13B 139 lost to Alton 153-5 by 14 runs
Only one game this weekend, for the B.  Alton won the toss and chose to bat in sunshine.  Bowling and fielding were a little wayward and some of the batting agricultural but effective leading to a big total.  The HWCC batsmen set about it from the start, aided by a fast outfield but lost wickets at regular intervals. At 80 for 6 the game looked up but Matthew Bartley conjured a stylish career best unbeaten 32 to leave us needing only 20 off the last two overs as the rain started to fall.  Sadly we couldn't quite do it, but it was another spirited performance.  Hoping for better weather for the 13Bs only game of the year on the green on Friday...

Farley win - Farley 185-7 off 40 overs, Hartley 144 all out off 35.3 overs.  Damian Keep 55 (his new age plus another 15 for good measure.  Good measure coincidentally also being what he'd downed the night before, and then some)

[A couple of junior boys games reports for the previous week]

U13B 131-5 lost to Old Basing 133-3 by seven wickets
The U13B team played a thriller at Old Basing on Sunday.  Edward Tomlinson and Oliver Male scored good runs to post a competitive total but despite tight bowling from William Shoesmith and Alexander Binns in particular Old Basing's best batsmen were too strong and they squeezed home with three balls to spare

U13A 121-3 beat Odiham 119-4 by six wickets (15/15 Cup)
The A team played a cup semi final on Tuesday night at Odiham. The blue cup shirts obviously agree with them as they produced a strong bowling performance to peg back a strong Odiham batting side to 120 after a fast start and then paced the chase nicely; Jack Grant and Will Brooke-Webb retiring before Edward Tomlinson, having played himself into form on Sunday, finished the game with four consecutive fours

Under 14 Girls 15/15 Cup Semi Final – lost to Cove
Sadly, we lost this semi final on the Green on Monday evening to a strong Cove team.
We batted first making only 75 runs off 16 overs, Gemma Lane (20), Sophie Gibson (11), Olivia Payne (26) and Lucy (9no) at the end.
Unfortunately, we gave too many extras away with our bowling. Zoe Baker took 2 wickets and Gemma 1 wicket. Jade Hine took a superb catch off Zoe’s bowling and Lucy kept wicket well.

Under 13 Girls North County Cup FINAL – WON
The girls played an amazing match from start to finish beating Yateley to go through to the Hampshire County Clubs Championship final to be played on Monday 13th July.
This was an 8 aside, 16 over match.
We won the toss and fielded first. From the very first ball, with all the girls taking their turn to bowl in this match, they bowled superbly with very few extras being given away.

Olivia Payne took an incredible hat trick (caught by Ruby, caught by Tally and stumped by Lucy), for which she was presented with the match ball.
We bowled the opposition all out for 43 runs off 15.3 overs.
The girls only required 6.1 overs to get the runs required to win. Gemma (13no), Sophie (7) and Zoe (13no).
A great win for the girls team.

Sir Gary Sobers is NOT visiting HWCC!

Due to a mix up at the Barbados Tourist Office Sir Garry Sobers will be unable to visit us at HWCC this Friday.

Sir Garry sends his apologies.

Sir Gary Sobers is visiting HWCC at 7pm, Friday 19th June!

This legend of Cricket is a tourism ambassador for Barbados and also promotes an Under 19 Cricket tournament that carries his name.  He is in the UK and visiting cricket clubs to spread the word.

We have an U9 match vs Basingstoke that night at the Green that starts at 6pm and should be done by 8pm.

The outline plan is:
  • Gary Sobers arrives at around 7pm to meet everyone and watch the last part of the match; this gives photo opportunities outside in the light
  • After the match at 8pm he will talk about Barbados and the U19 tournament
  • Dependent on weather the talk may be in the bar or even outside
  • He may talk for 20mins or so and then he will do a Q&A
  • He will probably leave by around 9:30pm
We hope that plenty of members and especially juniors will come down that night to watch the U9s, have some BBQ and hear the great man speak – all are welcome.

HWCC Weekly Results Round-up

Twenty20 1s vs Hook & Newnham Basics 1st XI, SPL T20 Cup

Hook win by 9 wkts.

U15A vs Eversley U15A Sunday 7th June
Hartley win by 5 wickets
On a glorious Sunday morning at the Green HW were a few bowlers short so won the toss, stuck Eversley in and used 8 different guys with the ball in 20 overs.  We were pleased to restrict Eversley to 143 and took 7 wickets in the process.  Our fielding was pretty good all round and the team kept going right to the end.
William Kerr (50 retired) and Tom Kirkpatrick (21) gave HW a great start based on judicious hitting and excellent running between the wickets that put pressure on the Eversley fielders.  Momentum was maintained by everyone but especially Tom Brooke-Webb (21), Wilf Perry (14 no) and Charlie Puddifant (6 no) to see the good guys home in 17.2 overs.  Well done lads, an excellent win.

U13A 120-3 lost to Hook 121-4 by six wickets (league)

A depleted A team acquitted themselves well against a full strength Hook on Saturday at Bramshill.  Good batting from Angus Brown, Edward Tomlinson, Harry Broderick and especially Harris Fairley at the end gave us a defensible total.  But despite Gemma Lane bowling both their top class openers we couldn't hold on to the chances in the field that would have derailed their chase and by the time the dangerous batsmen were dismissed they were close enough to overhaul our total.   Look forward to seeing them again at full strength later in the season.

U13A 186 all out beat Cove 72 for 7 by 114 runs (15/15 cup)

Cup cricket in smart blue shirts brought the best out of the U13s on Monday night.  Devastating batting all down the order (including a Will Brooke-Webb six that nearly broke his opening partner's bedroom window over long on) accompanied by really intelligent running posted a huge total.  Cove were never going to get close faced with good accurate bowling and energetic fielding and subsided almost before the rain came.

U14 Girls - League match vs Cove – WON

This was another great team effort by the girls today. Cove batted first and we restricted them to 97 runs off 18 overs.
Wickets were taken by Gemma Lane (2), Tally Puddifant, Talulla Crawford and Jade Hine. The girls fielded well with Tally and Jade taking great catches and Alice saved some crucial boundaries. Lucy Newell was very reliable behind the stumps and kept superbly as usual.
With the bat Sophie Gibson top scored with 27 not out and Zoe Baker (21 not out), with Gemma (11) and Ruby (9) also contributing to a winning total of 98 off 13 overs.

Frimley won by 53 runs.  Guy Cartwright 71.

U13s vs Odiham CC

HWCC U13 106-8 tied with Odiham 106-6

Though the B game on Sunday was lost to the weather, there were enough breaks in the clouds for the U13A to play unbeaten and table topping Odiham at Crondall on Friday night.

Put into bat we made a good start but only Will Brooke Webb was able to push on beyond 20 and we subsided from 70 for 3 off 9 to 106 for 8 off our 20 overs, struggling to get Odiham's accurate slower bowlers away.  Undaunted, our bowlers set about defending a low total with disciplined bowling and good catching, and when Odiham's county batsman retired at the end of the 19th over they were still four runs short.  Three wickets in that last over - one clean bowled and two run outs as they tried to steal a matchwinning bye - left the scores tied and the spectators' nerves in tatters. 

A great game played in great spirit which leaves us still unbeaten and on Odiham's tail at the top of the league table.

U13 Girls vs Cove CC, County Cup Semi-final

8-a-side, 16 overs, won by 17 runs

We lost the toss and were put into bat first with Gemma Lane opening with Olivia Payne. Both girls batted well with Gemma retiring on 28. Ruby Wollen (14 runs) and Tally Puddifant (11 no) continued the good work.
Gemma returned to the crease finishing on 35 not out, seeing the team to a total of 90 off 16 overs.

The first 4 bowlers, Zoe Baker, Gemma, Ruby and Tally kept Cove to only 31 runs off 8 overs. Sophie Gibson and Alice Sullivan bowled tidily, while Lucy Newell and Olivia who shared the wicket keeping duties, did a good job.  Ruby took 2 wickets, Tally one wicket and Gemma one wicket with two maiden overs (1 for 1 off 2.3 overs).

Cove were bowled out for 73 off 15.3 overs.
The girls were all focussed in the field, with three superb run outs from Tally, Lucy and Sophie.

The 17 run win was a great team effort and exciting to watch.

An Evening with Shaun Udal & Jimmy Adams

U9Bs vs Alton

Today's match was away at Alton. A lovely site next to the railway line with the steam train running back and forth.
Our B team was supplemented by some new faces now that the football season has finished. Edward won the toss for us choosing to field first. Edward started the bowling and took a wicket with the first ball; he followed this with a catch later in the match off Louis' bowling. Our other wickets were 2 for Henry.  The bowling was very good with everyone coming very close to taking wickets, just for the ball to turn 60 degrees off the bounce; not a nice surface. Alton ended their innings on a very respectable 282.
Into bat, and off we went chasing 282. The batting was steady and again there was a great deal of calling. This is beginning to work and was put to very good use by the partnership of Rory and Lewis who run nearly everything, only not running on 5 balls from their 4 overs. Our innings was also complimented with a 6 from Louis; hopefully the first of many.  We ended our innings on 267, which unfortunately was not enough to win the match.
This was a good match for the B's; a close match, with a lot of the training now beginning to come together. Well done and keep it up.
This weeks man of the match goes to Louis; a wicket, a fantastic 6, a few 4’s and generally just running around the field filling the holes.
Well done Louis.

HWCC Weekly Results Round-up

Saturday 1s vs Bournemouth CC, SPL Div 1

Bournemouth overs win by 1 wicket

Saturday 2s vs Tadley Hobos, HCL Div 3 North

Tadley win by 4 wickets

Saturday 3s vs Fair Oak CC 4th XI, HCL Reg Div 3 NE

Hartley win by 16 runs

A great start to the 3's season. After a close inspection of the artificial wicket, and gaffa-taped crease, Hartley elected to bat having won the toss. (Nothing new there!) We managed 159-9 off our full 42 overs which is commendable on our first outing of the season and something that we have struggled with in recent years. G. Jackson 37, T. Soper 64.

With only 10 players we knew we had to be patient to break through their top order and from there pick away at the mid-order and tail end. D.Gray taking a stunner at Gulley helped the momentum! Then taking 3 wickets for 3 runs in the 25th and 26th over proved vital and gave us enthusiasm to bowl them out for 143. T. Soper 3-33, G. Jackson 3-21.

Well done team, a very pleasant and 'well spirited' afternoon.

Sunday 2s vs Farley Hill CC Friendly XI

Farley win by 86 runs

But great performances from James Darnell (on debut for the Sun 2s) - 2 wickets for 10 runs and 1 great catch and 1 stunning catch, and from Gerry Morgan (not quite on debut) 4 wickets for 11 runs.

U13B (98) beat Oakley (93-9) by five runs

While the U13A team were given a week off by the inability of their opposition to raise a team (bit of a theme this weekend) the B team travelled to rural Oakley.  Put into bat we started well but the innings tailed off somewhat with some unimpressive shot selection and undistinguished calling and running; our total of 98 looked no better than par.  However, we bowled straight (William Shoesmith outstanding) and fielded well, conceding far fewer extras than last week and securing some good run outs of our own.  By the last over Oakley were 9 down and needed 12 to win; captain Will Calder and his fielders kept their nerve and restricted the opposition's best batsmen to six singles for a deserved win.

This morning saw HWCC take on Basingstoke A team at St Neots. On arrival it was debatable whether the weather would hold - but we got lucky for once.

Captain Ted Norris won the toss and elected to field on what turned out to be a lovely pitch on the “Whites field”

Basingstoke opened with a strong batting pair and racked up 21 runs off their first 4 overs, before Finn Norris bowled their No1 for 14 with a ball that dipped and turned off the pitch. Basingstoke kept up a good scoring rate over the next 5 overs reaching 49 off 10 overs, albeit the wickets started to tumble. HWCC were exceptional in the field with 3 run outs and all players showing great concentration. It could have been better as we put down 5 catches in total although none of them were easy chances, Tight bowling  restricted the Basingstoke batsmen to singles and eventually were bowled out for 69 off 17 overs. This was an exceptional bowling and fielding display with some top class moments ( James Hamment C&B )

Finn Norris            2 wickets
Tom Jarman            2 wickets
James Hamment        1 wicket
Jack Child            1 wicket
Jamie Gilley            1 wicket

Run Outs - Charlie Jones, Edward Philpott and Tom Jarman
Catches : Jamie Gilley x 2

At the break we asked the boys to focus on their discipline,proper shots and to not take risks in bat. The score was achievable if we batted sensibly
We opened with James Hamment and Jack Child. Basingstoke bowled very neatly and controlled the scoring rate. After 2 overs we had lost both openers for 9 runs. From then on, HWCC batsmen played very sensible cricket and kept the scoreboard ticking. Tom Jarman, Charlie Jones, Ted Norris and Boris Mc all played out their 4 overs before retiring, allowing our last 4 batsmen freedom to play their shots. Finn Norris made a comfortable 13 not out, with some excellent running between the wickets and understanding with both Ben and Boris, Ben played a commanding innings of 17 not out off 10 balls with 3 high quality boundaries , with Edward Philpott coming in to finish the game which he did in style smashing a huge 6 to leg side ( 9 not out) Jamie Gilley did not bat. What impressed us most was the way Finn, Ben and Edward in particular took the simple singles, hitting into gaps and getting the scoreboard moving. HWCC reached their target off 15.3 overs.

We cannot express how impressive the team were today - to a man - they all played well and should all be very pleased with their own individual performances. As we said after the game, they have now set a very high standard which they want to maintain.

Man of the match again this week is difficult as everyone played well. MOTM though goes to JAMIE GILLEY, who led by example in the field, bowled 3 overs for 4 runs, took 2 catches and a wicket and showed great attitude towards the “team” when it came to batting line up.

U9s vs Dogmersfield

The day started very grey with the possibility of rain when we started, but soon changed to blue sky.  Dogmersfield arrived with a mixed team of beginners and district players; we are still at the beginner stage, but I am pleased to say that some of the recent training started to show though today.
Henry was captain (birthday treat) and went up for the toss. We lost and were put into bat first. Henry and Theo were first up, but suffered at the hands of a district bowler losing three wickets in the first over.
Matthew and Max were next up and provided a steady innings with some very good calling (it was starting to come together).  This was followed by the partnership of the day, from Ben and Sam. The calling was fantastic and a number of runs were acquired from small chances. Sam finished with a net score of 7, the highest score of the day.  The last pair was Joshua and Griff, who again showed that the calling practice was starting to work!   At the end of the innings we had a final score of 210 for 10 wickets. The wickets we lost were a mixture of very good bowling (their Max got 5 for no runs off his two overs) and run outs; which is a pitfall as the boys start to practise their calling to run.
We then went into field and faced with their batters, our bowlers suffered.  Everyone wanted to bowl, so each had their full two overs. We took four wickets, with one each for Henry, Max, Griff and Ben (a very big grin).  We did get hit for 4 a lot, but at the end we had only given away 20 wides / no balls from 96 balls, which is a huge improvement.  Most are now at that stage where the bowling is becoming straighter, but subsequently easier for the batter to hit. This showed with a final Dogmersfield score of 291.
Today every one played very well, with the recent emphasis on "calling" really starting to show.  Man of the match is difficult to select, so this week it is going to two;  Ben and Sam, for their superb batting (calling and running) followed by their bowling (Ben's wicket and Sam's straight and fast).
Well done boys.

U12 Girls vs Yately (Friendly)

Win for HWCC

Winning the toss HWCC fielded first and showed how much of an improvement the whole side has made in bowling taking 7 wickets (6 bowled and 1 run out). Added to this the number of dot balls bowled restricted Yateley's score.

Coming into bat HWCC knocked off the runs at the required rate resulting in the final two overs with a couple of boundaries getting HWCC across the line and winning with 5 balls left to be delivered.

The girls were rightly please having there first win of the season through a great team effort.

HWCC Weekly Results Round-up

Whilst it has been a tough week for the men's senior teams, the junior section has posted some strong results.

Saturday 1s vs New Milton CC, SPL Div 1

HWCC batted first, scoring 157 all out off 35.5 overs.  New Milton replied with 158-5 off 45 overs.

Saturday 2s vs South Wilts CC, HCL Div 3 North

HWCC batted first, scoring 182-9 off 45 overs.  South Milton replied with 185-4 off 44 overs.

Sunday 2s vs Dogmersfield, Friendly

Dogmersfield batted first, scoring 159 all out; Guy Cartwright getting his first 5-fer for the club, for 18 runs.  In reply HWCC were all out for 137, skipper Damian Keep making 50.

U15A vs Fleet 15:15 Cup on Sunday 10th May at HWCC

We lost the toss and were invited to bowl at the gentlemen of Fleet.  We did this pretty well restricting them to 65 for 6 wickets in 15 8 ball overs.  All the guys bowled tightly but especially Tom Dowe with 3 (8 ball) overs 1 for 9 .showing encouraging pace and bounce and James Darnell who took 3 wickets for a miserly 8 runs.  This was actually a belter of a batting pitch (the same one the firsts played on the previous day) and a par score was 160 plus. HWCC knocked the runs off in 31 balls, William Kerr retiring on a 22 ball 50 with a minimum of running and Tom Kirkpatrick and Matt Rudd not out at the end of a 10 wicket win.  It would have been good for more to bat but stiffer tests await soon."


U13a 116-5 beat Basingstoke 114-7 by 5 wickets
U13b 95-4 lost to Dogmersfield 98-1 by 9 wickets

After last weekend's washout the U13s were (mostly) luckier with weather this weekend.  The A team played at Basingstoke on Friday night, where a slightly rusty bowling performance nonetheless restricted Basingstoke to 114.  Jack Grant, Angus Brown and Jack Bramwell all scored freely to get us close to the target which was finally achieved in rain and near darkess for the loss of 5 wickets. The B team (including two players playing their first game for the club) played at breezy Bramshill on Saturday, where early season unfamiliarity with the bat meant their 95 runs was always going to be hard to defend.  Wil Geeves' outstanding catch (I don't expect to see a better one all season) was unfortunately the only wicket we took, though good fielding meant that Dogmersfield had only two overs left when they reached their target.

U11s vs Oakley CC

The boys played very well today against Oakley and ran out winners by 96 runs.

Losing the toss, HWCC batted first and batted in a very composed manner. Reaching a total of 137 for 3 off 20 overs, top scores were Bobby (18) Ben (14) Toby (13) Oscar (10). In general the calling and running between wickets was good, albeit we had our one obligatory run out.

In the field, we bowled with good accuracy and pace which the Oakley batsmen found very difficult to hit, managing only 3 runs off the bat. Bobby excelled today behind the stumps with 2 stumpings and 1 catch, TOBY (2 WICKETS) JAMES H (2 WICKETS) OSCAR (1 WICKET) BORIS (1 WICKET) BEN (1 WICKET) MIKEY (1 WICKET)  did the main damage with Jamie G and Edward P very unlucky not to take wickets with all their overs being maidens. Jamie G also took 2 good solid catches. 

We need to maintain concentration in the field, as there will be better teams to come who will put us under pressure, and need to up the speed of turnaround between overs. Overall though a great performance.

Man of the Match : with top score and great glove work today, MOTM is Bobby Wollen.

U14 Girls vs Wokingham CC

The U14 girls played their first league match on Friday evening against Wokingham CC, sadly we lost by 9 runs.
After fielding and bowling well, we fell short with the bat. Special mentions must go to Jade for two excellent run outs and one from Tally, a caught and bowled from Zoe, who also took a second wicket and Gemma who also took one wicket.
Tally bowled very tight only giving away 4 runs in 2 overs. Zoe and Ruby scored 17 and 14 runs respectively.

HWCC Weekly Results Round-up

HWCC Weekly Results Round-up

The Club's successful start to the season continues...

Junior section
Both the U15s and U13s boys’ teams had winning starts:
U15 League 1 HWCC (132 for 3 wickets) beat Basingstoke (129 for 6 wickets) by 3 runs
Important toss to win away at Basingstoke on a gloomy evening.  Our 132 for 3 was maybe 15 runs short of par on a good pitch with shortish boundaries and built on innings from William Kerr (50 retired), Ollie Waddington (31 no) and useful contributions from Matt Rudd (15) and Jake Meakin (12).  We bowled very well for the most part especially Joe van der Flier who started with a wicket maiden and only went for 20 in 4 overs and Matthew McLachlan who took 2 for 11 in two overs.  Some late hitting took Basingstoke close in a very good match but Ollie Waddington held his nerve in the last over to restrict the home team.
U13 15/15 Cup - HWCC (69-2) beat Overton (68) by 8 wickets
Neither overnight rain nor a little early season rustiness could prevent the U13s starting the 2015 season on a winning note. A cup game against a depleted Overton side should have made for an easy win, but Overton's seven batsmen battled gamely to a total of 68 in the face of a good spell of bowling from Jack Bramwell (4 for 10) and a brisk 30 not out from Angus Brown carried HWCC home for the loss of two wickets.  Stiffer tests await (Hook in the league next Sunday...)

Sunday 2s

The Sunday 2s (96 for 5 wickets) beat the Royal Challengers London (94 all out)

Fielding first, the 2s restricted RCL to 94 all out with a very strong all-round performance in the field with almost every catch-able ball greedily snaffled up; Guy Cartwright taking the bowling honours with 4 wickets for 36 runs off 8 overs.

The 2s top order all chipped in with some runs, but it was skipper Mark Boston who steered the team home with a strong 45 not out.

About Hartley Wintney Cricket Club, est. 1770

Hartley Wintney is one of the oldest and most beautifully sited cricket clubs in the country. 

The Club is a founder member of the Hampshire Cricket League - in which the Saturday 2nd and 3rd XIs compete - and the Three Counties Sunday Cricket League in which the 1st XI participates. Since  2002  the Saturday 1st XI have played in the Southern Electric Premier Cricket League. Our Sunday 2nd XI has a full programme of friendly fixtures. Friendly matches, evening limited-over knock-out games and a short tour of Cornwall in September are regular events. 

We have a strong youth section with boys teams at Under 9, 11, 13, 15 and 17, and girls teams at Under 12, 13, and 14, competing in the North Hampshire Cricket Development Association leagues.

Hartley Wintney is Clubmark-accredited and is an active participant in Chance to Shine, promoting and supporting cricket in local schools. The club is also a Hampshire Cricket Development Board Focus Club, with an active and ambitious plan for the future.

For several years running, we have hosted a Hampshire County Cricket Club XI match against our own 1st XI.  We also hold regular social events, many of which are publicised in the calendar above.
