Calling all Dorset Players or interested players.
The Dorset Cricket League committee are looking at next season already and would like your views on any possible changes to make the League games more attractive to players and we have created a survey to gain your feedback.

Thanks to a booking error, Triangle hosted 2 touring sides for an inaugural one-day tournament.
Triangle's 1st Annual F15 tournament took place at a windy Reforne (J Walker take note), as we hosted visitors Cricklade CC & Shirley CC for a 15 over (8 ball overs) event.
Triangle faced off against Cricklade first, putting on 163/6 with Matt Barrett (38), Simon Barrett (30), Matt Randell (30) and Rich Samuel (27) all contributing runs.
A dashing innings of 52 from Mills before he retired put Cricklade in contention, but the introduction of Matt Barrett (3/15) saw the visitors fall 18 runs short.
Shirley then faced off against Cricklade, restricting them to 82/4 after openers Gillmore (24) & Dunham (19) had been dismissed. Shirley made short work of the run chase reaching the target in the 8th over, Coombs (32) top-scoring.
This left PRT vs Shirley for the tournamnet, with Triangle posting 112 thanks to Matt Randell (42) and Matt Barrett (23). Shirley's Sam Whitby led the chase, eventually retiring on 51 but the damage had been done, and the visitors cruised to the win in the 13th over.
Triangle held its annual awards ceremony at The Blues Club.
Once again most of the Triangle players gathered to celebrate the season and hand out some awards.
Simon Proffitt collected the Saturday 1st XI Batting and Bowling honours, with Simon Barrett being awarded the Captain's Award.

The Sunday side's batting award went to Matt Randell, bowling to Nathan Cornish, and Ryley Marsh was the choice for Captain's Player.

Joe Adkins received the Martin Hewson Award for best performance by a younth player, for his match-saving innings against Ferndown Wayfarers.
After leading the 1st XI's celebrations, PRT's boffins have been hard at work deciphering the scorer's records...
Simon Proffitt proved to be the star of the team leading the batting and bowling charts. He hit 540 runs, averaging 49.09 with 3 centuries. He also took 42 wickets at 9.17 each, including 4 5 wicket hauls and a best of 7/34.
Behind him in the run charts was skipper Matt Randell, who scored 336 runs at 24.00 with one century; followed by Callan Laws (201 runs at 16.75, 1 fifty).
Matt Barrett followed close behind Proffitt with 31 wickets at 11.52, and also hit 132 runs at 44.00 (5 NOs). Simon Barrett (18 at 5.67), Matt Randell (13 at 18.54), Jon Cameron (11 at 25.55) and Rich Samuel (10 at 23.10) showed the strength of the 1st XI's bowling this season.
As the dust has settled on the 2nds promotion campaign it's time to study the figures...
Ryan Price topped the run-scoring charts with 330 for the season, averaging 41.25, with a highest score of 79*. He was followed by Olly Whisker (243 at 60.75), Tim Forshaw (209 at 52.25) and Dave Adkins (194 at 38.80).

The 1st XI came out on top in their winner-takes-all game against Compton House
Matt Randell's 1st XI held their nerves to secure the Division 2 title.
Triangle bowled and fielded well to bowl out visitors Compton House for 154.
Ray Emery (35) rediscovered some form with the bat and built the foundations for the innings with Callan Laws, who hit his maiden half-century of the season with a well-timed 55.
Olly Whisker (22*) and Joe Adkins saw the side home for the loss of 6 wickets and saw the club return to Division 1 after an 11 year absence
