BOURNEMOUTH were soundly beaten at the Ageas Bowl Nursery Ground by Hampshire Academy at the weekend in the ECB Southern Premier League, as the Lions were skittled for 118 inside 27 overs.

England Under-19 pair Dom Kelly and Eddie Jack whipped out Bournemouth openers Luke Webb and Tom Willoughby cheaply.

The Dorset skipper was bowled for a second ball duck by rising Canford star Jack with Willoughby, the Tasmanian left-hander, going soon after.

Teenagers Lewis Freak (23) and James Van Gool (21) rallied, but were trapped leg before by Oli Cordery (2-29) within five runs of each other as the Bournemouth score approached 60.

Tom Robinson (33), in good recent form, and Ben Rogers (15) lifted the total into treble figures, but when they were both caught behind by Joseph Eckland, Bournemouth collapsed like a pack of cards.

The last six wickets fell for 15 runs and Bournemouth to 118 all out, Zach Gadsby taking an eye catching 3-23 and Hamworthy-raised spinner Zach Basey 2-13.

The Academy lost opening pair Wilfred La Fontaine Jackson and Sam Ashman at eight, but Eckland (22) steadied the ship before Kelly (36) chipped in with some important runs.

Hampshire lost a total of five wickets – two to Dan Conway (2-24) – before Havant’s Charlie Whitfield (23 not out) and Jack completed the formalities.

There was small consolation for Bournemouth as Conor Smith was presented with a trophy after being named cricketer of the week for his performance the week prior against St Cross Symondians.
