Ventnor v Andover Cricket Club 1st XI (Sat) on Sat 06 Jul 2019 at 12:30
Andover Cricket Club Won by 137 runs

Match report Nordlock sponsored Andover had a victorious trip to Ventnor thanks mainly to a sparkling 122 from Alex Ayers.
Skipper Matt Hooper won the toss and elected to bat on warm day on the Isle of Wight. Andy Duckworth (9) and Glyn Treagus (18) hit some nice early boundaries but fell to some pacey Ventnor bowling from openers Chris Russell and George Willis. That brought young gun Alex Ayers to the crease. Assisted by Matt Knight (30), Ayers punished bowling some profligate Ventnor bowling to leave Andover at 150 for 2 at the halfway stage. Knight soon perished but Ayers kept up his assault, bringing up his maiden Andover ton with his brother Charlie at the crease. Looking to push on the scoring rate Andover lost flurry of wickets, with Charlie Ayers (17) and Nathan Birks (14) falling in quick succession. Alex Ayers was then bowled by George Willis with the score on 238 and Andover were in danger of losing their momentum. Enter Babu Veettil who hit a swashbuckling 60 off just 34 balls, hitting 4 sixes including one over the Ventnor pavilion. This late impetus helped Andover to reach an imposing 334 off their 50 overs.
The Ventnor reply started promisingly with Chris Russell (24) and George Willis (22) getting Ventnor off to a fast start. However Aidan Jansen removed both openers in quick succession and it proved a lethal blow to the Ventnor chances. Only Neil Westhorpe (53) provided any resistance as Charlie Ayers (4 for 41) and Glyn Treagus (2 for 27) removed the remaining Ventnor batsmen as the home side limped to 197 all out.
Andover entertain Sparsholt at London Road in the next round of Southern Premier League.
