Match report

A magnificent 170 from Bill Gates helped Portland Red Triangle Seconds to their first home win of the season in Dorset Funeral Plan Division 7.

Gates’ maiden hundred contained 27 fours and a six and he shared two century partnerships of 103 with Dave Males (36) and 106 with Simon Proffitt (20). He also added 67 with Pete Laming (42*) before his time at the crease was ended by Sherborne’s captain Bob Bibby. Laming and Pete Tombs guided the islanders past the three hundred mark when captain Tony Quayle decided to declare. 

An under-strength Sherborne side were always facing a daunting task and things started badly when Bibby (7) and Nick Sargent were dismissed by Dan Strong (2/6) with only 9 runs scored. Veteran Les Loader (29) and Blackmore (14) led the recovery until the introduction of leg spinner Adam Smart proved their downfall as he picked up three wickets. Young Rich Samuel (2/14) helped finish the job as the visitors were bowled out for 77 and Triangle eased their relegation fears with a 228 run victory. 

Captain Tony Quayle said, “That was a great performance from the team and it’s nice to finally win a game at home. Bill Gates’ knock was fantastic and his first century has been a long time coming. Young Simon got some valuable time in the middle and he was unlucky not to score more.”

“Sherborne’s lads put in a great effort in the field and credit to them for never giving up.”
