Earlswood v Wellesbourne Cricket Club CHL Saturday 1st XI on Sat 22 Aug 2015 at 1.30pm
Wellesbourne Cricket Club Won

Match report A splendid century from Gary Maynard and a first five-wicket haul from Harry Jackman were the highlights of Wellesbourne’s 82-run win at Watery Lane in their final game of the season as Bourne clinched the runners-up spot to deserved champions Exhall & Wixford. Earls won the toss and asked Bourne to bat first and openers Gary Maynard and Dave Barnett seem rarely troubled as they built an excellent opening partnership. Both players ran well between the wickets and were soon picking up boundaries as they raced passed their century stand until Barnett was caught behind by George Calkeld off James Bussey for a fine 63 with the score on 147. Maynard continued to flourish and with Nick Gabbett they took the total to 190 before Gabbett was run out going for a risky second run. John Edden continued the good work with Maynard, who went to his century, adding a quickfire 29 before he holed out off Bussey as Bourne reached 238 for three. Jamie Maynard then joined his brother at the crease and these two kept up the momentum until Gary Maynard was finally caught at long on off Arron Snipe for an excellent 138. Callum Hassett then picked up Jamie Maynard’s wicket for 19 before Jackman made a cameo 23 not out and Bourne closed on 318 for five with Bussey finishing with 2-52. With rain falling in the tea interval, Earlswood’s target was reduced to 248 off 35 overs and they made a quick start with Stuart Reeves and Joe McGovern punishing any loose deliveries and they soon raced to a 50 partnership in six overs before Tom Shearsby had McGovern caught by Tom Stephenson for 29. Reeves and Snipe continued to keep the scoreboard ticking over before Snipe went to a good catch in the deep by Travis Butcher for 17 and without further addition Reeves was caught by Chris Evans off Jackman for 34 and Earls were 82 for three. Bourne were now sensing victory as the clouds were darkening and Stephenson had Marvin Rice caught on the boundary by Gary Maynard before Jackman picked up two quick wickets having Leon Everett caught by Gary Maynard and bowling Karl Everett. The crucial wicket of Will Windeatt then followed as Stephenson had him caught by Evans and the home side were struggling on 108 for seven. Hassett tried to keep Earls in the game with some lusty blows before Jackman took his fifth wicket, and Bourne’s eighth, when he removed Calkeld to another Butcher catch with the score on 131. With 32 runs added, Jamie Maynard then took the last two wickets bowling both Hassett for a spirited 44 and Bussey and Earls were all out for 165 in the 30th over. Jackman had the excellent figures of 5-30, Jamie Maynard 2-0, Stephenson 2-77 and Shearsby 1-24.
