John Baxter

Portland Red Triangle will be hosting a Bumper Weekend of Cricket starting on Friday 27th August at 5.30pm when the club's veteran's side The Pirates will entertain a Select Eleven in a Twenty20 match. 

The highlight of the Bank Holiday Weekend will take place on Monday starting at 1.30pm when a team of Portland Legends led by Gary Randell will play a Portland Red Triangle Select in a memorial game for the late John Baxter. Club President Brian Riley praised the club and all involved in staging the game "John was a great loss to the club.

He was instrumental and a major driving force behind the construction of the club's present pavilion and is greatly missed by all at the club who had the honour of meeting him." 

The Legends will include such stalwarts as Ashley Doodge, Phil White and Melvyn Tremlin. All ex-players, supporters of the club and cricket fans are invited to attend. On the same day the Portland Cabin Boys and the Pirates will be travelling to Sixpenny Handley to take part in the annual sixes competition, with the Cabin Boys looking to retain the Trophy they won last year.

4 August, 2010

Bill GatesTriangle's Saturday 1st XI slumped to another defeat, this time at the hands of Cattistock. A fine stand by Chris Leak and Simon Barrett had eased the pain of the early loss of Dave Adkins, but Triangle went from a promising position at 130/2 to being bowled out for just 153. The visitors overcame a late blip to win by a comfortable 6 wickets.

Grant Neven's 2nd XI fared no better at Crewkerne, despite Bill Gates coming agonisingly close to a century, he was left on 99 not out at the close as Triangle scored 189/8. In reply Briggs & Sparrow shared a 102 run partnership for the 2nd wicket, but Michael Males returned to the attack to take 5/43 to give Portland hope, but it wasn't enough as the hosts eased to a 4 wicket win with nearly 8 overs to spare. View the scorecard here...
Dave Adkins
The Sunday 1st XI continued their winning run thanks to a 7 wicket haul from spinner Scott Males, with skipper Chris Leak picking up another half-century as they beat Bournemouth 2nds at Chapel Gate..

Callan Laws Stuart Sugg led his Sunday 2nds to their first win in a month with a convincing 88-run defeat of Old Bournemouthians. Dave Adkins scored an unbeaten 108 as Triangle notched up 232, though only after a massive mid-order collapse where 4 wickets went down in one over. Opening bowlers Michael Males and Jodie Locke could only watch in dismay as multiple catches were shelled off their bowling, until finally Grant Neven held onto one to stop the bleeding. Once the breakthrough was made, wickets tumbled and it was left to the spin twins Redfern (4/36) and Stewkesbury (3/16) to finish the job. Read the report here...

In the evening league The George Inn wrapped up their season with a win against Cosmos. Callan Laws was the star of the show with an unbeaten hundred as he single-handledly chased down the target of 145. Read the report here...

The Saturday 1st XI suffered a narrow defeat away to Martinstown, going down by 2 wickets. View the scorecard here...

The Sunday 1st XI fared much better, knocking league leaders Blandford Nomads off top spot in Division 4 with a 51 run win.  The Sunday 2nds lost their second game in a row with a 6 wicket loss away to Sturminster & Hinton, putting a dent in their promotion hopes.

In the evening league, Red Triangle and the George Inn went toe-to-toe - well they would have if either side had been able to muster a full XI - so due to a fixture clash with an Under 18's match, and other players absent due to holiday the game was reduced to a friendly. Dave Price's Triangle triumphed over Glyn Bartholomew's George Inn Select XI by 4 wickets. Read the report here...

As PRT's evening league side have now finished their fixtures, be prepared for a stat attack!

Results Update

Dave Price Dave Adkins 96noDave Price led his side to the Swift Signs Division 2 title with a 7-run win against Wessex Gasworks. Tom Cole (46) and Richard Johnson (39*) topped the scoring as Triangle set an imposing 131/6 from 16 overs. Opening bowlers Christian Brown (2/16) and Grant Neven (2/34) did the early damage, but Gareth Price remained a thorn in their side with an unbeaten 61. Skipper Dave Price was left to close out the win and confirm the championship and promotion for Triangle. Read the report here...

Matt Gomm's Saturday 1st's continued their good run of form with a solid 10-run win against 3rd placed Cerne Valley to move away from the threat of relegation and up to the heady heights of 6th position in Division 3. Chris Leake led the way with a fine knock of 89, unlucky to be given out lbw when on course for a century. Dave Adkins looked to have reached that milestone, but was left stranded on 96 not out at the close. Cerne were always in contention thanks to Kellaway's 101, but his dismissal left the visitors with too much to do.

Results Update

George Munro appeals for lbw The Saturday 1st XI eased their relegation fears with a 52-run win against fellow strugglers Bridport.  Triangle recovered from 22-3 as Simon Barrett (62) with Scott Males (21) and Matt Gomm (33), hit another half century as they finished on 185. Jon Dixon starred with the ball, taking 5-30, as 7 Bridport wickets fell for just 19 runs as they collapsed spectacularly from a strong position of 114/3. Read the full report here...

Grant Neven's 2nds got their promotion push back on track following successive defeats with a home win against basement side Stalbridge 3rds. All bowlers took wickets with Dave Price (3/30) the pick of them taking the key scalps of Robertson (33) and Calcott (43) as the visitors were dismissed for 123. A composed knock of 38 not out by Olly Whisker, backed up by young Pete Laming's 21, and brief cameos by Callan Laws (16) and Price (16) secured the win for the loss of 4 wickets. View the scorecard here...

The Sunday 1st XI bounced back from their recent loss to Winton Sports with a 4 wicket win against Puddletown. Chris Leak was again leading the way with a fine half-century as Triangle stay in touch with the leaders in 4th place in Division 4.

Stuart Sugg's Sunday 2nds were missing their leader who was enjoying a trip to Legoland, so vice-captain Jodie Locke, himself back from a sojourn down under, took the reins away to Christchurch 2nds. Triangle were put into the field, but a flurry of early wickets saw the hosts struggling at 104/7, but they were unable to dislodge Alexander whose knock of 69 swung the game in their favour. Despite being up with the run rate, Triangle steadily lost wickets and only a valiant stand at the end by Richard Johnson (28) and Jodie Locke (21) gave some hope before their dismissals saw Portland finish 40 runs adrift.

The 1st XI claimed a crushing 9-wicket win against Bournemouth 2nds, bowling the visitors out for just 100 and then only losing the wicket of Christian Brown in reply, as skipper Chris Leak added another half century to his collection.Marc Nott

Stuart Sugg's 2nd XI enjoyed their third win of the month which sees them head the Division 6 table. Triangle toppled league leaders Old Bournemouthians by 44 runs, thanks to useful knocks by Bill Trevett (37), Grant Neven (29), Tom Cole (27), Sugg (25) and a mammoth innings of 24 from 36 overs by opener Marc Nott as they finished on 199. A stunning diving catch by the skipper set the tone for the innings and Bournemouthians were eventually dismissed for 155. Read the report here...

Portland Sixes 2010 Winners, Underhill Royals In the evening league, Triangle crashed out of the Echo Cup at the 1st round stage following a loss against the in-form Portland Arms at the YOI jungle.

Results Update

Simon Proffitt Matt Gomm's Saturday 1sts are still searching for their first win of the season, this time going down by 56 runs away to Cerne Valley. Simon Proffitt (5/63) gave the islanders some hope, but once again their batting let them down, as despite getting starts no batsman passed 30, with Chris Leak top-scoring with 29. Read the report here...

Gary Randell Chris Leak's Sunday 1sts recorded their first win with a convincing 144 run victory over Dewlish. Gary Randell (62) topped the scoring, though Simon Proffitt was unlucky to be left unbeaten on 49 at the end of the innings as Triangle ended on 246-7. Early wickets from Chris Leak (1/19) and Matty Randell (2/29) put Triangle in control, and when Gary removed the dangerous Steve Hiller, the result never looked in doubt. Dewlish were bowled out for 132 with the returning Sami Rathnayake picking up the final 2 wickets. Read the report here...

Stuart Sugg Stuart Sugg's Sunday 2nds maintained their 100% record with a 99-run win over Broadstone 2nds at The Delph. Asked to bat first, Triangle were soon racking up the runs, thanks to some wayward bowling. After Marc Nott departed, sharing an opening stand of 48 with Dave Males, Scott then shared in a 100-run partnership with only 56 coming off the bat. Sugg and Bill Trevett's assault at the end of the innings saw them both reach their fifty in the final over and Triangle finished on 277-4. Richard Johnson's early wickets saw Broadstone slump to 3/2, but Pete Russell led the fightback. His dismissal soon after reaching fifty saw Broadstone collapse, before a mini-revival by Simmons (53) saw the hosts eventually all out for 178. Read the report here...

Olly Whisker In the evening league Dave Price led PRT to their third win with a dominant bowling performance against Marquis of Granby. Olly Whisker (4/3) was the star with the ball, which included a hattrick as Marquis were reduced to 43 all out. Whisker (3*) and Proffitt (23*) made short work of the run chase, as Triangle cruised to the win in the 5th over. Read the report here...

Matty Randell The George Inn fell to a 9 wicket loss to Cosmos at Redlands. Batting first the George lost wickets steadily with only Matty Randell (15), Richard Stewkesbury (14) and Lenny Hansford (10) reaching double figures. In reply Cosmos only lost the wicket of Brian Keane (20) bowled by Callan Laws as they reached the target with over 5 overs to spare. Read the report here...

Results Update

Jon Dixon The Saturday 1st XI continued their losing start to the season with a 4 wicket defeat at home to Bridport. Skipper Matt Gomm (20) and Jon Dixon (40) added 61 to lead the Triangle recovery after slumping to 61/4 The final total of 154 was not enough as Bridport reached it with nearly 10 overs to spare, despite a frugal 12 over spell from Dixon (2/20) and wickets from Simon Proffitt (3/43). Matt Gomm was not happy with the performance, "A few came out with a bit of credit but there were also a few that didn’t really perform. We’ve kept everything in-house but they know I’m not overly impressed." Read the report here...

Chris Leak's Sunday 1st XI kicked off their Division 4 campaign with defeat away to Puddletown. After being bowled out for just 122 on Puddletown's new artificial strip, they then saw their hosts reach the target for the loss of 2 wickets.

At Reforne, new Sunday 2nd XI captain Stuart Sugg recorded a maiden victory, and with some style as Triangle notched up an impressive 324/3 against Christchurch, as Dave Males (104*) and Dave Adkins (114) both recorded fabulous centuries. The visitors provided some resistance before they were eventually dismissed for 124.

Christian Brown In the Evening League, Dave Price's Triangle made it 2 wins from 2 with a 5 wicket win against the Portland Arms. Christian Brown proved the star with the ball as he picked up 4 wickets for 13 as the Arms collapsed to 54 all out. Openers Proffitt and Whisker both top-scored with 13 as Triangle made hard work of the run chase, eventually easing over the finish line thanks to Martin Weller scoring a rapid 8 from 2 balls.

Scott Males The Saturday 1st XI's campaign got off to a poor start, losing by 5 wickets away to Pavilion Sports at Spetisbury, more info when we get it.

Meanwhile, back on home soil Grant Neven lead his troops to an opening day victory over Gillingham. Scott Males starred with the ball picking up 5-30 and later with the bat, adding a useful 16. Ken Dodson top-scored for Triangle with 36 and Sam Polley (22*) guided the 2nds home. Read the report here...

Bill Gates Both Sunday games were washed out, but Triangle were back in action in the evening league. Now in Division 2, Dave Price's men are looking to bounce straight back up to the big time and got off to the perfect start with victory over Cosmos. Olly Whisker (27*) kept his head as all around them were losing theirs and carried his bat as Triangle chased down 68 to win. Earlier Bill Gates was the pick of the bowling with 3-13, as all bowlers picked up wickets. Read the report here...

The George Inn also opened their evening league campaign with a win against 2009 Division 2 runners-up Wessex Gasworks. Young Chris Theakstone picked up the man of the match honours for a composed 20 not out and some tidy work with the gloves as the George chased down a target of 101 at Redlands.

GIRLS CRICKET

In a joint venture between Portland Red Triangle, Weymouth C.C. and the Osprey Leisure Centre, Free Coaching is offered to all girls between 8-16. The sessions will begin on Monday 22nd February and run for 9 weeks every Monday between 4-5pm. This is a fantastic chance for girls who have played the game before or those wishing to take up the game to receive 1st class coaching from fully qualified E.C.B Coaches at no cost.

Portland Secretary Grant Neven is full of enthusiasm and, "Hopes that the joint venture could lead to the formation of a girls team to represent the area in competitive games and who knows maybe find future county and England players." He added, "In the past both ourselves and Weymouth have held girls only coaching sessions but never attracted sufficient numbers to form a team, by combining our resources and holding regular sessions both clubs hope that finally girls and ladies cricket will take off in the area."

Sean Fitzgerald of Weymouth added, "For too long girls and ladies cricket in the area has taken a back seat at most clubs, by our two clubs working together I hope that we will attract good numbers to the sessions and hopefully continue to provide joint sessions throughout the summer and beyond."
