Thornton’s century rattles V&A Museum
Published 11/08/14



OLLIE THORNTON’S knock of 133 was the difference between TURVILLE PARK and VICTORIA AND ALBERT MUSEUM on Saturday.

The game was shortened to 25 overs due to rain. Turville batted first and started out strong with Charlie Beardall hitting 36 before being given lbw. James Thornton came in to help his son reach 100 with a fast second 50. Ollie hit another 33 for Turville to finish the innings on 186-2.

Victoria and Albert Museum came into bat with father and son Nick and Charles Henry opening the bowling. A steady start by the pair was accelerated by the wicket of Emley for five off Nick Henry with the catch by the skipper Sam Beardall.

James Thornton came on, for what would turn out to be a critical change as he took 3-16 off the maximum five overs, including the wicket of a fiery player A Jacot who was caught by Charles Henry at square leg for five.

Tom Bolt took the final wicket and his first of his Turville career with a caught and bowled to end the match with Victoria and Albert Museum all out for 84. A late cut for two past back of square and two singles by Charles Henry was the difference between TURVILLE PARK and WARBOROUGH on Sunday.


Despite the 138 not out by Warborough captain Jonny Bradshaw, Turville were strong in the field. Henry was the perfect example of this with a one-handed grab and throw to save a certain boundary.

The 14-year-old also put in his shift running around the field with fellow Radleian Archie Marsh and Jack Rogers. Henry did his work on the bowling front too, bowling some classy yorkers and out-swinging deliveries. In reply Charlie Beardall was given lbw for 30, whilst skipper Sam Beardall scored 112 before being caught.

Jack Rogers had a solid innings before being bowled for 35. Pete Briffett only managed to score one, caught on the boundary.

This brought Henry in with 10 runs to win. A late cut for two on his first ball and two shots for singles brought Turville closer to the win. Henry was caught for four and Chris Rogers wrapped up the match with two fours.
