BOURNEMOUTH experienced a bad day at the office as they crashed to a 107-run defeat at fourth-placed ECB Southern Premier Division rivals Burridge.

They were dismissed for 189 having spent an arduous 61 overs in the field as Burridge piled up 296-6 at Botley Road.

Bournemouth were on the back foot for the bulk of the morning session, with South African Mat Goles (48) and Joe Wells-Collings (32) sharing an 84-run start which Dan Conway (2-33) interrupted with a double breakthrough.

The Burridge score reached 176 before Bournemouth enjoyed further success – Tom Robinson (2-52) striking twice as three wickets fells cheaply.

But Nathan Schoultz (70) remained in control and took Burridge past 200 before pair Dan Stancliffe (46) and Inayat Ullah (46) added an unbroken 87, Ullah hitting three sixes.

The Burridge seventh-wicket pair then created inroads into the Bournemouth batting, only James Van Gool (31) and Robinson (44) making their mark as wickets tumbled.

Man-of-the-match Ullal took 4-52 and Stancliffe 3-28 before Jake Hurley (30) gave the Bournemouth reply late substance.

Division Three newcomers Parley suffered an 11-run defeat to Paultons, having had the visitors rocking at 109-7.

But they recovered to reach 235-9 and bowl Parley out for 224, Tom Jacques hitting 59.
