2018 League Fixtures


The 2018 league season kicks off on Saturday 5th May and our first fixtures are as follows:


1st XI (SPL Division 1) v OTs & Romsey (Home)

2nd XI (HCL CD1) v Shrewton (Away)

3rd XI (HCL CD3N) v Michelmersh & Timsbury (Away)

4th XI (HCL RD1NE) v Old Basing III (Home - Stratton Park)


Sadly, the Club isn't running a 5th XI this year as it proved a struggle to get 55 players out each Saturday last year.  However, we do review the demand for cricket and hence the number of teams we need at the end of each season.

Focus on HNBCC!

Cup Fever - some you win, some you lose


Guy Jewell Cup

Our GJ "A" team convincingly won the Guy Jewell on Sunday morning against Basingstoke & NH at the Bounty.  A large HNBCC crowd saw their heros restrict Basingstoke to 104 for 8 in their 20 overs with Kevin Poulter and Anik Divecha both returning figures of 2 for 19.  In reply, Ben Thane and Matt Buckingham went early but an unbroken 4th wicket stand of 62 off just 24 balls between the Willcock brothers, (Nick 41*, Rich 24*) sealed victory in the 13th over.  Kev Poulter won Man of the Match and Rich Willcock won Moment of the Match for his great catch.


Southern Premier T20 Cup

In the afternoon following the Guy Jewell success, HNBCC's second shot at the SPL T20 semi-final at Alton proved no more promising than the first as Alton dominated the game ag.ain.  HNBCC did well to restrict the hosts to 144 for 8 with Rhodes Franklin 4 for 23 and Anik Divecha 3 for 24 the pick of the bowlers.  In reply, HNBCC lost 3 early wickets from which they never recovered, stuttering to a disappointing 91 all out.  However we can look back on a well-fought campaign.


Under 17 Kerry Cup

HNBCC Under 17s were victorious in the final of the Kerry Cup against Compton & Chandlers Ford last Thursday at the Bounty.  Batting first, HNBCC ran up a challenging total of 181 for 4 in their 20 overs, mainly thank to 95 not out from Alex Brown.  Compton & CF put up a spirited reply but were always just behind the required run rate, ending up on 165 for 4.  Well done lads, it's been a great season.

Not bad for a small club.  Hook Army!!!

Week 17 sees 4th XI promoted

The 4th XI achieved promotion from HCL Regional Division NE2 by securing 3rd place after victory against unbeaten league leaders St Marys at Stratton Park.  Batting first, the visitors were restricted to 137 all out with Ollie May returning the remarkable figures of 5 for 8.  In reply, openers Barry Goodman (60) and Josh May (62*) put on over 100 for the first wicket, before HNBCC ran out 8 wicket winners.  Congratulations to Tony Robson and his mixture of willbees and hasbeens.

In SPL Div 1, the 1st XI completed the "double" over Portsmouth at the seaside.  Portsmouth batted first and accumulated 219 for 7, Shane Brewer returning figures of 3 for 46.  An opening stand of 125 between Ben Thane (73) and Rich Willcock (66) paved the way for a 4 wicket victory.

In HCL CD1, the 2nd XI were overpowered by league leaders Lymington II at KGV.  The visitors, batting first, posted an impressive 246 for 9 in their 50 oves, Liam Shore's 3 for 35 being the pick of the bowlers.  HNBCC's innings never got going and hampered by 2 run outs descended to 112 all out.  A disappointing finale to what was otherwise a reasonable season.

In HCL CD3N, the Dirty Birds hosted Steep at Rotherwick and ended up on the wrong side of an enthralling finish.  HNBCC amassed a competitive target of 177, Will Gee with 42 top scorer.  Stev Cates with 2 for 11 off 10 overs restricted Steep but the visitors began to close the gap, though losing wickets regularly to Luke Burgess (3 for 37) and Will Gee (2 for 36).  The result came down to the last over and the visitors hit a 4 off the penultimate ball to win by 1 wicket.  All in all, a disappointing season for the 3rd XI but they comfortably avoided relegation and blooded a lot of Colts players into adult cricket which should stand the club in good stead for future years.

Performance of the day? Ollie May 5 for 8 for 4th XI.

Week 16 is a bell ringer!

That a week is a long time in Cricket was no better demonstrated yesterday by all teams winning, just 7 days after all teams lost.  This resulted in the ringing of Coach’s Bell for the first time this season.

In SPL Div 1, the 1st XI comfortably beat Rowledge by 71 runs.  Setting a target of 253, largely thanks to 75 not out from Nick Willcock and 54 from Josh Buckingham, HNBCC bowled Rowledge out for 182, with 3 wickets a piece for Kev Poulter and Shane Brewer.

After last Saturday’s dismal performance, the 2nd XI bounced back at New Milton with a 48 run victory in HCL CD1.  Batting first, HNBCC set a decent target of 212 for 8, with 55 from Jack Robson and 40 from Ben Allnutt.  In reply, the hosts were well set at 95 for 1 but faded dramatically to 164 all out, mainly at the hands of 3 wickets each for Kish Parmar and Liam Doran.

In HCL CD3N, the Dirty Birds travelled to Tichborne Park and bowled and fielded with spirit to restrict the hosts to 134 all out, the pick of the bowlers being Ollie H-B with 4 for 35 and James Dovey with 3-21.  A fine 50 from Mad Dog and 45 not out from Ollie H-B guided the 3rd XI to their target with only a few nervous moments.

Visiting Herriard in HCL RD2NE, the 4th XI struggled for runs on a difficult pitch and long outfield, ending up with only 110 for 9 off their 42 overs, Barry Goodman making the major contribution with 50.  The home side found life even more difficult against the HNBCC bowling attack, ending with a dramatic collapse to 63 all out at the hands of Peter Hook (5 for 6) and Alex Cates (3 for 7).

Performance of the day? Peter Hook 5 for 6 for 4th XI.
