Barley (203-8) beat University SSC (185-9) by 19 runs.
BARLEY revived their season with a good win against USSC.
Batting first on a flat wicket, openers Jamie Walters and Philip George got off to a good start and built a swift 50 partnership before Walters (32) drove a catch to extra cover.
George soon followed for 16 before Martin Beedell and Dave Riggs then took on the bowlers and drove fours around the ground.
You may also want to watch:
Riggs fell for 17, Chris Allan was caught for 10 and Chris Markham was bowled for 12, so it was up to the batting of Ali Wallace (22) and Beedell (61) to take Barley to 203-8.
With the ball, some quick deliveries from Wallace at one end and accurate flighted balls from Michael Ross at the other tied the batsmen down.

As USSC's frustration grew, more chances for Barley to claim wickets came and eventually Will Graham was caught behind by George off Wallace.
Cronin, who had scored a 100 against Barley earlier in the season, wasn't so lucky this time and was clean bowled by Ross.
Gallagher soon followed him back to the pavilion before Ross took the Tatham's wicket too.
Pipkinskip came on for Ross but bowled too short and was pulled away for several boundaries by Chip Dunford and Richard Savage.
Despite their heroics, and Dunford's 50, Wallace (2-44) came back on and caused mayhem and USSC finished 19 runs short.
