FARLEY enjoyed a fine final week of the league season, with both sides recording comfortable wins.

After electing to bat at home to Hungerford, the first team got off to a flying start, finding the fence regularly.

Ramesh Gurung only had to run one of his 37, before he fell in the eighth over with 50 on the board.

There was another half-century stand for the second wicket, and with 18 overs to go Farley had cruised past 150, with Archie Ayling on his way to 50 in 34 balls.

While Ayling continued to dominate, Farley’s middle order faltered, slipping to 225-8 with six overs to go.

But the arrival of Sam Waters at the crease turned things around in some style. The pair put on 70 in 29 balls - with Ayling powering his way to an unbeaten 127, as Farley finished on 315-9.

Despite two early victims for skipper Marc Burton, Hungerford opted to chase hard, and kept up with the run rate. But after dangerman Lake was caught off Waters, wickets continued to fall - Waters (3-35) finishing the job in the 35th over.

The win meant Farley finished in seventh spot in Division Three North.

Meanwhile, it was Farley’s seniors who laid the foundations for the second team’s 49-run victory over Longparish thirds.

A sixth wicket stand of 68 between Tim Lerwill and Keith Redding - more accustomed to opening together for the Wiltshire Over 70s - saw Farley to 146-9 on a tricky Leckford pitch.

Lerwill then also grabbed three scalps as a good bowling and fielding display saw Longparish all out for 97, though the biggest smiles were for 15 year old Ollie Corfield, who claimed his first wicket in adult cricket.
