Hardman leads four-some Dons

Hambledon under-13s have recorded a fourth consecutive victory in the South East Hants Indoor League.

The young Dons registered a comfortable win over Purbrook, as skipper Will Hardman led by example.

The captain conceded just 12 runs in his three overs as Hambledon restricted their neighbours to just 86 for three.

Jack Thistlewayte, Alec Younger and Harry Hoolahan all weighed in to support Hardman with the ball, while Sam Phillips delivered another impressive display with the gloves.

After the interval, the Dons lost Hardman and Younger early in their reply.

But Tom Toogood and Hoolahan took on the run chase and, with quick running between wickets, both retired on 20.

Thistlewayte kept things on track before delivering a massive six to complete the win in style.
