DORSET captain Luke Webb hit a century, but it was little more than consolation for Bournemouth after they had been given the runaround in the Ageas Bowl heat by the Hampshire Academy youngsters, who piled up a daunting 300-8.

Webb scored 117 as Bournemouth were dismissed for 257 to give the Academy a 43-run win, their second consecutive ECB Southern Premier Division victory.

Without lead strike bowler Dan Conway and left-arm spinner Robbie Pack, Bournemouth were always going to be up against it and the Young Hawks had 136 on the board before the opening stand between Jude Wright (82) and Tom Chester (51) was broken.

The openers were parted within two runs of each other, but Sam Ruffell (43) and Dubs Wood (20) continued to move the score along as Oli Breckon apart, the five Bournemouth bowlers each went for six or seven runs an over.

Ethan Martin (37), hero of the Academy’s astonishing win over Havant the previous week, put bat to ball, as did Ethan Baker and Oli Spink just before the break.

Bournemouth lost Nick Park to the fifth ball of Martin’s opening over and then saw Tom Robinson trapped leg before by the young Rowledge all-rounder at 22-2.

Tasmanian Tom Willoughby (22) played a brief cameo, but it was largely Webb taking on the Academy on his own – something he achieved with credit in a two-and-a-half hour stay at the crease, scoring 117 at a run a ball, including two sixes and 16 fours.

Simon Woodruff (35), Chris Park (25) and Jake Hurley (22) gave support down the order, but Baker (3-51) and Cheater (2-16) gradually worked their way through to leave Bournemouth 257 all out.
