OLIVER Lockey scored 11 sixes on his way to a rapid century as Bourton Vale won their second game of the season in the WEPL Gloucestershire.

Lockey - who scored 119 runs off just 68 deliveries - did the majority of the damage as he thrashed the Cheltenham Civil Service bowlers to all corners of the ground as part of Bourton's 380/7 from their 50 overs. 

Richard Cook took a leaf out of Lockey's book lower down the order, racing to 83 off just 46 balls, a knock that included six 6s.

Cheltenham's George Leadbetter responded with a century of his own - 106 off 104 balls, including three 6s and 14 fours - but he was the only batter to provide any resistance as they eventually fell to 176 all-out to conclude a 204-run defeat. 

Ryan Newhook was the pick of the Bourton bowling unit taking 4-18 from his seven overs, with James Vlaeminck contributing two wickets for 19 runs. 

It proved to be a good weekend all round for Bourton, as their 2XI and 3XI also picked up convincing victories in their respective league matches. 

The 2s hosted Woodpeckers in Division 3 of the Gloucestershire County League, looking to pick up their first win of the 2023 season. 

After winning the toss, Bourton decided to bat first and opener Andy Phillips scored 101 to guide them to 264 all-out. Nick Anderson (29) and Ben Hughes (24) provided some valuable runs but Phillips had done the damage. 

Charlie Townsend (74) and David Griffiths (53) threatened to snatch victory from Bourton but they ran out of deliveries in the end, losing by 60 runs. 

As for the 3XI, Matt Darbon took three wickets for just seven runs as Bourton bowled out hosts Buscot Park for just 95 runs. Andy Capper top-scored for the hosts with just 17 runs. 

Phil Colmer and Aled Davies provided the majority of the runs for Bourton, who did lose five wickets before eventually getting over the line in the 24th over.
