SOUTH Wilts Cricket Club's under 15s completed a league and cup double despite rain forcing their final game to be abandoned.

The weather has been the scourge of the Wiltshire Youth Cricket League this summer with a large number of fixtures lost to near consistent rainfall over the last two months.

With the league title to be decided on the last day between the unbeaten Salisbury outfit and second placed rivals Corsham, every effort was made to play despite the weekend's downpours.

In persistent rain and wind, the accuracy of Josh Croom, 2-21, and Jayden Atkinson (six overs for just eight) caused problems for the visiting top order.

Callum Sandell, 55, battled hard, and, alongside Josh Stanley, 20, rescued his side. Chris Chaddock (1-10 off six) and Ben Higton kept the run-rate down.

Eddie Stagg returned to pick up two wickets and George Edwards also claimed one as Corsham slumped to 112-6.

However, with five overs left, the wind and rain stepped up a final gear and the 36th over became farcical for the fielding side as Corsham were forced off at 124-6.

No further play was possible meaning that South Wilts duly finished as league champions.

A club spokesman said: "It was a disappointing way to end a great season that saw them win all league games completed along with the County Cup."

The side's only defeat of the campaign came in the Regional Finals when the weather once again did cricket no favours.

Meanwhile, County Cup winners South Wilts' under 13s' hopes of also securing a double were dashed by the rain, meaning they had to settle for a third place finish.

An early season defeat to Swindon followed by a string of postponements and forfeitures meant that going into the last game with Winsley, a win for either side would be enough to grab the title.

However, the rain was once again the victor ensuring Swindon stayed on top of the pile.

The rain also prevented any play in the under 11s' final contest, meaning they finished second in the table.

South Wilts' under 11Bs - a mixture of nine and ten-year-olds - enjoyed a good season and gave a first experience of hard ball cricket to a number of boys. Their third place finish was a credit to the good cricket played.

HAVANT Cricket Club retained the ECB Southern Premier League title with a closing day success against fellow high-fliers Lymington.

After their previous week's defeat against Havant, second-placed South Wilts needed a high-points victory away at St Cross Symondians and for the leaders to come unstuck against Lymington, if they were to take the crown.

However, the permutations proved academic as the Salisbury side went down by four wickets and the holders won by seven wickets.

South Wilts posted 283-8 but saw their hosts reach their total with four wickets in hand.

William Wade and Tom Cowley, 45, gave them a solid start sharing an opening partnership of 81. South Wilts then progressed to 155 when Wade departed for 59. James Hayward lasted just six balls but the visitors had 220 on the board when Jack Mynott went for 84.

Ben Draper added a useful 58 and Joe Cranch made 22 before the last few wickets went cheaply as their 50 overs came to a close.

South Wilts' hopes were high when they had opener Asher Hart out for a duck with only a run on the board.

But Harry Came's unbeaten 112 ultimately proved decisive and with support from Logan Van Beek, 67, and Billy Mead, 59, saw them to their target in the final over.

Havant had no problem doing what they had to do to ensure they stayed at the top of the pile. They bowled Lymington out for just 106 inside 43 overs, then needed just 22.4 overs to reach their target. They survived an early wobble - both openers were out with only eight runs scored - Ben Walker, 33 not out, and Robert Gibson, 32 not out, stayed calm to wrap up the win and a second title on the spin.

Bashley (Rydal) beat Hampshire Academy by eight wickets to pip South Wilts to second spot with Lymington dropping to fourth.

RELEGATION-threatened Redlynch & Hale couldn't have faced a tougher ask when County Division Two leaders Parley arrived at Woodfalls Cross needing a win and 21 points to secure the title.

In-form Parley won the toss and had no hesitation in batting on a hot, sunny afternoon.

Ben Brown sent down his customary ten overs for a frugal 31 runs without reward, but Ched Hopkins broke through Sam Collin's (38) defence at 63-1.

Will Hewlett then had Alex Nippard pouched by James Taylor, but a 95-run stand for the third wicket put Parley well and truly in the driver's seat.

Shane Green, 60, and Ollie Green, 87, were taking the game away from the hosts, but finally Taylor broke through.

The visitors still accelerated, passing the 200 mark with 15 overs still to go and although Taylor, Dave Webber and Hopkins all bagged a brace, more power hitting from the lower order saw a massive 332-7 posted at tea.

Facing such a formidable total proved just too much for Taylor's team and although players got themselves in, no one could capitalise and go on to the big score which was needed if there was to be any chance of a shock result.

The hosts tried their best, but the powerful Parley attack made regular inroads. Once again, only Rhys Williams was able to dig in with a creditable 33, and with Jamie Hicks mopping up the tail, the Wiltshire side's County Division Two days came to an end, being all out for 183.

There was better news for the club's second string, who efficiently knocked over South Wilts IV.

Dom Sell, 3-14, and returning skipper Stan Boardman, 4-25, reduced South Wilts to 117 all out.

Then an elegant 38 from Ewan Tanner and good knocks from Harvey Boardman, 21 not out, and Alex Tilley, 33 not out, overhauled the target with six wickets in hand.

Meanwhile, at Hale, Redlynch's thirds recovered from 20-6 against Ampfield & N Baddesley II, to post 105, with Michael Brown, 25, top scoring.

The visitors struggled as Ash Church, 4-27, got amongst them, but overcame the target with four wickets in hand.

SOUTH Wilts Cricket Club are sitting pretty at the summit of the Premier Division with just two games to play.

Saturday's success at home to New Milton keeps them clear of Havant and Lymington, who still hold serious title ambitions of their own.

The Wilton Road side won by seven wickets after reaching their target of 134 for the loss of just three wickets. Havant kept their title hopes alive with an eight-wicket win at Burridge, while Lymington won by four wickets at Hampshire Academy.

The race for the title could become clearer after this weekend - South Wilts head to reigning champions Havant, while Lymington host Burridge.

Havant then take on Lymington in their season finale with South Wilts bowing out at St Cross Symondians.
