ANOTHER DEFEAT FOR STRUGGLING VENTNOR

41

cricketstumpVentnor Cricket Club’s first team remain at the bottom of the British Gas Southern League Premier Division table after an 8 wicket defeat against Bashley at Newclose on Saturday.

A disappointing batting display saw the hosts dismissed for just 71, veteran seamer Kevin Nash taking 6-27 for the visitors who polished off the meagre target in less than 11 overs.

Ventnor face fellow strugglers New Milton at Fernhill on Saturday 25th June. In addition, Ventnor’s first team face Sarisbury Athletic in the second round of the British Gas T20 Cup at Steephill on Sunday 3rd July.

An early morning call from Shrewton saved Ventnor’s second team a wasted journey on Saturday, heavy overnight rain putting paid to their Hampshire League Division 1 clash.

Meanwhile, 15-year-olds Zeph Wells and Ben Attrill were the outstanding performers in Ventnor third team’s 6 wicket success over Totton & Eling IV in Hampshire League Division 3 South.

Seamer Wells took 5-20 as the visitors were bowled out for 144, with Attrill’s fine unbeaten 51 seeing the home team to victory,  supported by 43 from Mark Price.
