Summary of results Saturday 26th August 2013

In Division One 1st XIs, Bank Holiday weekend ended as it began, with an Astwood Bank victory as the leaders opened up an almost unassailable 60 points gap with three games remaining by ending the challenge of Hagley in emphatic style.

Just a month ago there was one one point between these two teams but Hagley have taken just 19 points whilst AB have gathered 92.

Bromyard went second and look as if they are the only challengers now as today they thrashed Oldswinford into submission after firstly conceding 272 including 101 from Lee Nightingale and 94 from Rhys Williams before they stunned their visitors with an opening stand of 265 between Dinush Fernando 146 not out and Ryan Tongue, making his second hundred for the weekend with 101. Pershore slip to 3rd after they lost at home to local rivals Redditch.

Elsewhere, Worcester Olly Peppiatt made 103 not out as he and Nick Brown swept his side to a ten wicket win over struggling Burghill who have slipped to 11th despite Pedmore defeating Droitwich.

The final match ended in victory for Dominies over Belbroughton. Next week Droitwich must win at Oldswinford as this is their easiest route to survival of the matches remaining in their dogfight with Burghill.

Division Two 1st XIs – Harvington were involved in a tight finish at Colwall where they ended 3 runs short of Colwall ‘s total with just one wicket left. They still lead by 70 points so need just three more points when they play Feckenham at home next week.

Colwall in 2nd could still be caught by Enville or Bewdley after Enville thrashed Cookley and Bewdley’s Mike Harris’s 118 was not enough to take full points from Feckenham who ended less than 50 behind with 6 wickets in hand.

Wormelow drew with Netherton and Coombs Wood further eased their relegation pressures with a win over Rushwick whilst Stourport’s winning draw at Tenbury has moved them closer to Cookley and possible survival.

Colwall remain favourites to follow Harvington into Division one as Bewdley and Enville must meet on 7th September.

Division Three 1st XI leaders Lye have clinched the title by beating Himbleton with 109 not out from the bat of Usman Jilani and 8 wickets from Azhar Naeem. They now stand 81 points clear with three games left.

Harborne stand 2nd and made little headway as they only just held on for the losing draw at Ross for whom Jack Evans scored 106 not out. Alveley are 3rd despite losing at Malvern for whom Anthony Arnold made 102.

Elsewhere, Himley are not giving up Division three status without a fight and beat Birlingham by 12 runs to get to within 40 points of safety, Romsley were well beaten by Stourbridge Social and Avoncroft won the match at Alvechurch thanks to 64 and seven wickets from Will Sach.

Now one of the final issues needing to be settled is which two out of Himley, Himbleton and Romsley will be relegated and with Himbleton at home to Himley on 7th September that match will be vital.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the 2nd XIs, Division one Champions Astwood Bank cruised past 400 points with an 84 run win at Hagley. Chris Perkins made 155 of his side’s runs and they look to be well placed to compete in the Birmingham League Division two south, next season, particularly as they are the only 2nd XI in the top half of our 2nd XI table with a side also in the top half of the 1st XIs’ set up.

Elsewhere, Colwall’s Ben Cooke followed Saturday’s 172 with 122 not out at 4th ranked Belbroughton as his side moved up to 3rd place, 12 behind Pedmore who could only manage a winning draw at home to Droitwich.

Bewdley beat bottom side Pershore and Rushwick beat Coombs Wood thanks to centuries scored by Ian Turner and Joe Blight. Finally, Cookley’s Mike Wood took 7-43 as his side won at Enville.

In Division two, leaders Redditch beat Alvechurch by 9 wickets as Worcester could only draw with Himley. So, Stourport’s big win over Tenbury, which included 218 scored by Spencer Colley and 103 from Ian Delo lifts them up to 2nd spot, 38 points behind the leaders.

Harborne are also challenging Worcester as they had Sauf Islam’s 105 not out to thank for their win over Dominies. However, Netherton could not force the win over Stourbridge Social despite 106 scored by Usman Bari and Bromyard had a similar stalemate at Oldswinford.

Division three 2nd XI leaders Feckenham beat Avoncroft and Lye in 2nd, 18 points behind the leaders, thrashed Himbleton after a magnificent 7-52 from Taimoor Ilyas.

The other matches saw Wormelow beat Romsley, Harvington beat Ross on Wye, Alveley beat Malvern and Burghill beat Birlingham.
