SWANAGE enjoyed another good week on the field, with victory for both of their teams in the Dorset Cricket League.

The first XI travelled to high-flying Chalke Valley in Division One, who got off to a disastrous start, losing two wickets in the first two overs.

Steve Ramsay and Ben Hodder kept up the pressure, claiming four and three wickets respectively, reducing the hosts to 102-8. The lower order rallied, reaching 163.

Swanage lost two early wickets themselves in the reply, but a half-century partnership between Mark Stacey and Tom Wells put them in a good position.

Both fell in quick succession for 65 and 45 respectively, but in-form Craig Wells (17no) guided his side over the line to a five-wicket win.

Swanage have now reached 100 points and sit sixth in the division.

In Division Four, Swans hosted Martinstown, cruising to a 114-run win.

Batting first, the home side started strongly with Sam Wells and John Lewis putting on a half-century stand, before falling for 28 and 21 respectively.

But the momentum was maintained down in no small part to in-form Mike Nash smashing in 114, hitting 20 boundaries on the way.

James Harding (34) and Steve Woolley (30no) also contributed well as Swans closed on 277-8.

Martinstown started well in reply, but could not keep up with the scoring rate. Woolley (3-28) was the pick of the bowlers, as the visitors saw out their overs, reaching 163-5.
