TASMANIAN Tom Willoughby produced a stunning individual performance for Bournemouth at Bemerton, but was unable to get the Lions across the line in a 14-run defeat by ECB Southern Premier Division rivals South Wilts.

Bowling left-arm spin, Willoughby took 3-20 as South Wilts were dismissed for 205 and later made 91, an innings which appeared to be guiding Bournemouth to victory.

But his dismissal at 160 proved critical as Bournemouth completely lost their way and closed 191-8, the Lions left to rue the 26 wides they bowled in the South Wilts innings.

Notable performers aside from Willoughby were Ollie Breckon and Cole Rushforth, who each took three wickets apiece, while fellow opener Luke Webb was second leading scorer with the bat, contributing 26.

Newcomers Parley began life in the SPL on a winning note, defending 138 and bowling Havant II out for 41.

After their Division Three opener was cancelled, Kieran Laird led the way with the bat for Parley, scoring an unbeaten 30, supported by Tom Barber (24).

Jack Nicholls then took four wickets and Ollie Green contributed three as the home side cruised to victory.

Bournemouth welcome Bashley to Chapel Gate on Saturday, while Parley host Trojans.
