Wherwell II’s skip Cray Sams won the toss and skipped C Sams decided to bowl.
Rob Gladwyn opened the bowling with a wicket maiden giving Wherwell II a good start. The pitch was a difficult one for Winterslow II’s openers to gain momentum as Wherwell kept the fielding tight and with tactical rollers and bouncers, but the bowling extras relieved some of the pressure. New comer Rob White came onto bowl breaking the developing partnership of Winterslow II’s and created a good opportunity to regain the match at 98 for 2 off 20. R White went on to take three more wickets with a spell of 55 for 4 off 10. Giles Elwes and Lenny Russell enabled Wherwell to close the innings at 24 for 2 off 10 and 11 for 2 off 4 leaving them to chase 172 to win.
Winterslow II’s put Wherwell II on the back foot on the third over by losing Mike Buckett for just 1, however it was Wherwell II’s skip C Sams, R White and G Elwes collective contributed a great knock to secure Wherwell II’s victory. G Elwes was bowled for 20, C Sams was bowled for 49 and R White finished not out on 77. Wherwell successfully chased 172 in 34.1 overs.
KJM sponsored Wherwell I & II’s have had an excellent start to the season for wins all around so far this season.
Harry Trebert 145no vs Ashford Hill III 04/07/2015
Wherwell 2nds traveled to Ashford Hill aiming to bounce back from a 6 run defeat last weekend. New captain for the day, Harry Trebert, won the toss and chose to bowl first. Wherwell got off to an impressive start with Nick Baughen by picking up the first wicket of the day for Wherwell, closely followed by Scott Blackmore who bowled a very good spell by getting 2 for 51 off his 10 overs. Ashford Hill started to pick up the pace towards the end of their innings finishing on what they thought was a very impressive 258 for 4.
Wherwells opening batsmen lost 3 wickets for only 33 runs which bought Harry Trebert and Giles Elwes to the crease with a lot of pressure to steady the innings. They both got off to a great start with Trebert picking up his very first half century, closely then followed by Elwes. Elwes (52) then got out leaving Trebert and Blackmore with more added pressure. Trebert then went on to scoring his first ever century and managed to win the game for Wherwell, ending on 145no.
KJM sponsored Wherwell Second Xl cruised to a club record win against Alderholt Second X1.
Despite the summer holidays reducing Wherwell to 9 players, the club amassed 307 for 5 wickets during their allotted 42 overs – a club record. Star of the show was undoubtedly Charlie Ingrem. Smashing the ball to all parts of Alderholt’s lovely ground he raced past fifty before a muscle injury forced him to retire. Steve Bonser also notched a fifty before re-arranging his wicket by means of falling over it. Ice packs had worked magic enabling Charlie returned to complete his hundred, ably supported by debutant skipper (and new to the village) Giles Elwes – 47 not out – and Russell Ingrem who despatched the last two balls for a six and a four – finishing on 20 not out. Fielding a full eleven players, Alderholt were overwhelmed by the task facing them.
Robbie Gladwyn reduced run scoring to a trickle and finished with figures of 8 runs off 6 overs for 4 wickets. At the other end Mike Hayden was proving equally as difficult to get away and as desperation set in some imprudent shots from Alderholt batters allowed Russell Ingrem, fielding up very close, to make four excellent catches. In less than 20 overs Alderholt had succumbed with just 41 runs on the board.
A win by 266 is a record win for Wherwell Cricket Club and it has provided a real highlight towards the end of the season.
Compton & C Ford travelled to Wherwell on one of warmest days of the year, to having one won the toss and elected to bowl first. Experienced skipper Mick Ling with up-and-coming youthful member Nick Baughen opened the batting, however young Baughen was quickly caught out. Wherwell not long after lost another wicket and were looking in trouble within the first ten overs, but new player Giles Elwes soon walked up to the crease and hit the highest score of the day, 65. This quickly regaining Wherwell’s stability. As overs and wickets went on, the likes of Jordan Trebert and Simon Shickland hit solid scores to carry Wherwell up to a respectable total of 175 all out.
After Compton & C Ford’s punishment in the mid-day heat, Wherwell continued to thrive with Robby Gladwyn for 10 overs, 36 runs and 4 wickets. Young Baughen redeemed himself by taking a much needed wicket early on, which later enabled Ling to take another two, followed by Cray finishing off with 3.1 overs, 1 run and 2 wickets.
This was Wherwell’s 2nd XI first win of the year and it was achieved by tremendous team spirit recognised throughout the entire day by all players.
KJM Wherwell 2nds travelled to Easton 3rds. They won the toss and chose to bowl 1st. Jordan. Trebert and Nick Baughen opened, shortly after facing a few overs Baughen got bowled. Craig Sams came to the crease. Trebert and Sams made and excellent start Trebert being bowled on 36 with Sams pushing on to achieve his first every century with 108 not out. Wherwell finishing with 179 on the board.
Wherwell struggled to find their rhythm with the ball with only 8 men on the field they didn’t give up hope and Robbie Gladwyn and Brendan Tasker picked up 2 key wickets before Easton pushed on and won the game.
Wherwell 2nd XI hosted Cadnam, for the first time in a fortnight the pitch was deemed to be playable. Mick Ling batted first opening with Jordan Trebert. the pair got off to the perfect start with Jordan in T20 mode, he raced to 50 runs with Ling matching him, they put on 112 before Jordan lost his wicket, his elder brother Luke batting at 3 provided a foil for the classic style of Ling as they took the score to 130 for 1 before Trebert fell for 18. Ling went on to 63 and the team closed the innings on 172 for 5.
This looked to be a competitive score but with a restricted bowling attack the home side were unable to put pressure on the batters, Brendon Tasker held a caught and bowled and Rob Weeks took a fine catch off the bowling of Robbie Gladwyn but the visitors batters took the game away from wherwell with a 166 run partnership to see the win secured by 8 wickets inside 30 overs.
KJM sponsored Wherwell entertained a strong Bramshaw side, after losing the toss the visitors decided to have a bat knowing Wherwell had just ten, but started with just nine due to the late arrival of a player. So with just nine Wherwell knew it was going to tough to stem the runs. Bramshaw’s top order began to find the boundaries with ease in particular T.Vane 101 and C.Plumbury 65 really took a liking to the bowling, however Adam Cook 5-27 of 7 overs ensured Wherwell had a chance, but after a huge 256 all out Bramshaw went to tea knowing that the total was above anything Wherwell had scored all season.
After some tea with regular openers Mick Ling away and Nigel Horne called up to the first team, they knew it would be an extremely tough chase, so openers Charlie Ingrem and Adam Cook gave Wherwell a solid start but after losing both in a matter of overs the wickets began fall at all to often intervals. Russell Ingrem 55 not out showed the way and in a team total of just 100, scored over half of the teams runs, no one provided him with support in order to make a decent attempt at the total, as Wherwell fell to a big defeat. With no game this weekend Wherwell will look ahead to next week when then travel to Centurions looking for a win.
With the forecast of heavy rain KJM sponsored Wherwell made the journey to Minstead in the New Forest not expecting to get much cricket played against a Cadnam side sitting alongside the visitors in the league. Suprisingly the game got underway on time under leaden skies with Wherwell invited to bat on what looked a traditional strip with plenty of grass and a few hoof prints fortunately well short of a length.
From the off it was clearly going to be a high scoring track, good bounce but a lack of pace meaning anything short could be attacked and both openers quickly found the pace with Harry Trebert being particularly aggressive, the score raced to 52 before the tenth over was up but a full in swinger finally did for the young opener for 33, Mick Ling carried on in traditional style until being removed by a change of angle from the home spinner. This saw Charlie Ingrem enter the game in typical fashion, he took an immediate liking to the home bowlers and was soon clearing the pavilion with ease, once again Stephen Bonser (17) was going well and the 2 took the score beyond 150. Ingrem brought up his 50 but then perished next ball, a lack of concentration saw him get a leading edge and the keeper ran around for a simple catch. With the score at 152 for 6 from only 30 overs Wherwell needed to see the overs used to ensure a good total, Paul Whyton joined Bonser and the hope was for these 2 to take the bulk of the remaining overs however it ended too soon for Bonser as he was run out for the 3rd week in a row backing up after a firm drive was deflected by the bowler onto the stumps. With 3 members of the U15 team batting at 9,10,11 whyton dug in happy to play out maidens as the rain drifted in and out, Jacob Williams perished after a good sensible innings bowled off what should have been a no ball but Nick Baughen showed maturity and with whyton taking the attack to the bowlers brutally over cover they took the score to 218 before both fell in the final 2 overs.
Rain fell during tea but once again the match restarted with no loss of time.
Nick Baughen opening the bowling for the first time in senior cricket got a wicket in his first over thanks to a well taken catch by U15 team mate Ben Connor, this looked to be a good start but even though the bowling and fielding was tight there seemed to be 1 boundary found in every over as the home side kept just ahead of the D/L rate. Harry Trebert once again lead the attack well and got reward in his 5th over, Adam Cook was once again the most successful bowler with 2 wickets from his 10 overs but with steady rain falling and the ball turning to soap the batters took control, edges went into gaps or over head and the runs kept coming. It was no surprise when the winning run was squirted through the offside with 7 overs remaining. Wherwell though can take much from this performance, they have played worse and won and with 5 player 16 and under the nucleus of a strong squad is clear to see.
KJM Sponsored Wherwell entertained Langley Manor and after winning the toss, captain Mick Ling decided to bat on another very hot summer day. Opening pairing of Mick Ling and Nigel Horne made a comfortable start putting on 40 before Horne was caught for 16, then after losing Harry Trebert for a first ball duck. This brought Steve Bonsor to crease and he began to hit boundaries to all part of the ground before he was run out for a very well constructed 43, Mark Pembry 26 able supported him in the 60 run partnership and after losing them, the lower order helped Wherwell up to a total of 178-7 off there 42 overs.
After some tea Langley Manor’s opening pair got them off to a flying start knocking the ball all over the ground before Harry Trebert broke the partnership at 60, this then caused a few nerves in the Manor camp as they lost a couple more quick wickets, however this only proceeded in bring in the inform P.Ferris 75* who proceeded to show why he had been scoring fifties for fun this year and he slowly began to take the game away from Wherwell, his partnership with E.Ponting of 111 took Langley Manor to Wherwell’s total as they eased to a 7 wicket victory. Wherwell learnt that the dropped catches of these two early on in there innings had cost them what probably would have been a victory.
KJM sponsored Wherwell 2nd XI won the toss and chose to field on a hot summer’s afternoon. Emslie and Trebert again opened the bowling for Wherwell. Emslie picked up two wickets and could of had a third but a difficult catch was dropped by Ling. Trebert was also picking up wickets at the other end and he ended up with figures of 3-30 of his 8 overs. Cook picked up a couple of wicket and Ed John cleaned up the tail. IBM ending up 142 all out.
After tea Wherwell knew that the total was very gettable but after losing the early wicket of Trebert, Micki Ling knew he was going to have to anchor the innings,Ed John went in and hit his first ball for four then tried to play the same shot again and got caught by the fielder. Harry Trebert and Mick Ling settled the nerves of the team and began to build a partnership, knocking of the runs one by one until Trebert was bowled for 16. In came Emslie to the crease and he was playing some good shots down the ground and started hitting boundaries on regular occasions, Emslie then wanted a quick single due to a wicket keeping error saw Mick ran out for 38 bringing Charles Ingrem to the crease who was off to a nervy start playing and missing, but then he soon found his timing and started hitting the ball clearing to the boundary. Losing Emslie for 27 only brought Adam Cook in at 7. Ingrem then hit a huge six off a no ball to take Wherwell to within 6 of victory and they were knocked off with ease and Wherwell won by 4 wickets.
