WINTERBOURNE Cricket Club won their local derby with Amesbury for a second year in a row, edging a closely-fought contest which could have gone either way.

Having won the toss, Amesbury elected to bowl first and in the third over, with only one run on the scoreboard, claimed their first wicket when Matt Windows was trapped LBW by Gareth Dobson.

With Jaden Atkinson also bowling well at the other end, runs were hard to come by, but new batsman Manny Gurung, along with Jamie Harvey, started to make use of the good batting surface with very little movement from the new ball.

Gurung played some glorious cuts off Dobson and Harvey joined in with cuts and drives which took the score along nicely to 59-1 after 16 overs.

Amesbury then brought on Macaulay Atkinson to try and force a mistake and the switch immediately paid dividends as Gurung was caught behind for 20.

Mick Hunter soon departed too, bowled just three balls later.

Jack Senescall bowled a good line and length and gave nothing away, conceding just four runs from his first four overs.

But after drinks, Dadd and Harvey began to up the ante and took Winterbourne to 110 off 30 overs.

But in the next over Dadd was run out coming back for the second for a well made 36.

Harvey pulled Senescall for four to bring up his half century, but then drove a simple catch to mid-off and was caught for 53.

Winterbourne, at one point 118-3 and looking to post well over 200, collapsed to 154 all out as the middle order played a series of loose shots which Amesbury capitalised on. Atkinson was pick of the bowlers with 3-30.

Winterbourne opened with two spinners, but once again Chris Breeze had no luck whatsoever as an early catch went down and Andy Renshaw, who had bagged a ton the week before, had an early reprieve.

At the other end, Ed Dadd started perfectly, bowling three maidens in a row and picked up the wickets of Renshaw and Dando as a couple of catches were finally taken.

Jack Senescall looked to be the only man capable of winning it for Amesbury, and it was immediately obvious that he fancied taking on Ed Dadd, smashing 32 runs from two overs.

Joe Cunningham replaced Dadd, but again pace on the ball wasn't the answer as Senescall continued to smash boundaries and propel the score towards three figures.

Matt Newman replaced Breeze and the change worked immediately as Jayme Underwood offered a simple chance to Mick Hunter at gully and departed for 12.

Manny Gurung replaced Cunningham, and along with Newman the pair completely changed the game as Gurung took a stunning one-handed caught and bowled to dismiss the dangerous Senescall for 67 and swing the game back in Winterbourne's favour.

From then on the Amesbury lower order played in a similar fashion to Winterbourne's, needlessly giving their wickets away - every batsman but one being caught.

Dadd took an excellent catch in the deep to help remove Dale Gower for 12 off the bowling of Newman, and then Newman caught and bowled Smith for ten.

Manny was bowling an excellent spell at the other end, and had Atkinson caught behind for ten and then Smith caught at slip for one.

With only just over a run an over required from the final 15 overs, Macaulay Atkinson dug in and showed what it is like to value your wicket. Gareth Dobson just needed to stay with him and pick up the odd single, but he played a big shot towards long-on off Newman and Dadd took another excellent catch to put Winterbourne on the brink of victory.

The innings appropriately came to an end thanks to another brilliant ball by Manny which bowled Atkinson for eight to give Winterbourne victory by 12 runs. A

mesbury had collapsed from 108-3 to 142 all out. Newman finished with 4 for 30 and Gurung an excellent 4 for 19.
