FARLEY Foxes, sponsored by Jordans estate agents, made it three wins out of four in the Salisbury District Wednesday Cricket League with a seven wicket victory at Dinton.

After home skipper Ben Coombes elected to bat on a warm evening, the Farley attack began tightly against the prolific Lance Harwood and Marc Cooper.

Skipper Manny Gurung unleashed his spinners, wickets began to tumble. Sumith Surendran struck first in a three over spell of 2-3, while the in-form Jake Hand had Harwood (21) and James Wade leg before.

Suman Shreshtra was even more effective, claiming three wickets for two runs and skipper Gurung finished things off, as Dinton were all out for 61 in the 19th over.

Mark Fower (15) saw Farley off to a good start in response before he became Rob Middlecote's second victim.

Ganesh Sankaran hit a quick 19 and then Shreshtra and Gurung saw Farley home with seven overs remaining.

With one game to go of the league season, Farley's first midweek side for some years is proving to be highly successful, bringing new players to the club and playing some excellent cricket.

Last Saturday, Farley slipped to an agonising defeat at home to Ellingham, despite putting 273-8 on the board.

The hosts had reduced Ellingham to 92-5 in response, with two wickets apiece for Sam Waters and Sam Burton, before Jimmy Edwards joined captain Sean Leadbetter.

The pair added an unbroken 182 for the sixth wicket as Farley wilted in the heat, Edwards with a belligerent 117 and Leadbetter 80. Edwards finished the game in the 43rd over with his fifth six.

Farley's total had been built on a century stand between Geoff Ramsey (71) and Jon Burton (41) - consolidating after three early wickets.

Marc Burton then pushed the accelerator, smashing 57 in 30 balls, aided by some sweet striking from Manny Gurung (24), Sandesh Lama (17 not out) and Sam Burton (11 not out). It should have been enough for victory, but Ellingham had other ideas.

It was also a disappointing day for Farley's second team, who tasted defeat for the first time this season away at Collingbourne.

Batting first, Farley's top order fell quickly again and despite some resistance in the middle, Farley were bundled out for 92.

The bowlers set to work gamely picking up regular wickets, but could not repeat last week's miracle as some aggressive striking saw Collingbourne over the line with three wickets to spare.
