CHAMPIONS! 2003-2004

Bere Regis' Indoor Cricket team clinched the clubs first indoor title after a nail-biting finale to the 2003/04 season. Requiring a victory against Dewlish to stand any chance of the title, Bere started off very slowly and, batting first, had only scored 48 off the first six overs. However some big hitting and some quick running in between the wickets saw Bere put on 99 runs in the last six overs to finish 147-4. Demoralised by the numbers of runs conceded towards the end of Bere's innings, Dewlish never really threatened Bere and all out off the final ball of the game (thanks to a terrific catch by Gren Davis) for 100, to give Bere a 47 run victory.

With victory obtained, the Bere squad nervously watched the game between second placed Old Blandfordians 'A' and third placed Milton Abbas. A win for Old Blandfordians would see Bere lift the trophy while a win for Milton Abbey would see the title decided on the final game of the season when Milton Abbas were playing again. Milton Abbas posted a strong total and looked favourites to win the game, however some loose bowling let Old Blandfordians into the game and they wrapped up victory, to the delight of the Bere faithful, with five balls to spare.

Squad: Steve Cheeseman, Matt Tatchell, Martyn Price, Dave Scott, Alan Green, Paul Fripp and Gren Davis. (with one off appearances from Dean Merritt, Pete Macklin and Chris Oram)
