Thornton’s century rattles V&A Museum

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.
