Hartley Wintney reach Guy Jewell Cup final
HARTLEY Wintney beat defending champions Basingstoke Development XI by seven wickets on Friday night to book their place in the Bluebird Care Guy Jewell Cup final.
The village side, winners of the competition in 2006, 2008 and 2010, will face last season’s beaten finalists Yateley at May’s Bounty on Sunday (start time 4pm).
Will Phillips, with an unbeaten 66, was Hartley’s hero in the semi-final as they scored 131-3.
Earlier, Basingstoke skipper Dan Coombs hit 51 in their total of 130-8 as Tommy Flanders (3-20) was the pick of the bowlers.
The previous night, Kevin Light hammered 93 not out, which included seven sixes and seven fours, to help Stratfield Turgis into the final of the Plate competition as they beat Sherfield by two wickets with a winning score of 151-8.
Sherfield had scored 147-3, Stewart their top scorer with 62.
The second Plate semi-final takes place tomorrow night at May’s Bounty, when Whitchurch face Ropley.
The winners will then battle it with Stratfield Turgis on Sunday at May’s Bounty in a game which starts at midday as, like the cup final, admission is free.
In the Southern League Division One on Saturday, Hartley looked in good shape against Rowledge, having reached 103-2 after 16 overs with Roy Cockram unbeaten on 55. He had hit 10 fours.
However, rain then caused the game to be abandoned meaning Hartley were unable to chase down Rowledge’s 250-6.
Hook’s game at Burridge never got started, while Basingstoke's second XI played just nine balls in their game at Bournemouth II in Division Three.
