 Worcestershire County Cricket League

Summary of results Saturday 28th June 2014

Many matches ruined by weather yet again and a sincere thanks is due from the players to all those Grounds men who were watering in the first half of the week and then putting covers and sheets on as the downpours arrived later in the week.

In Division One 1st XIs, Pershore gained a winning draw as they ground down the Bromyard total to end up one short but off three fewer overs. Earlier Bromyard had recovered from 68-5 to post 174-6 thanks in large part to John Parker, called up from last week’s 3rd XI match to make his first 1st XI league appearance for over two seasons, John made 41 in a 7th wicket stand with Tom Baylis. When they batted, Pershore themselves were rocking at 145-8 and it was left to Lee Wilks to steer them home with 48 not out to claim 11 points and regain top spot, 3 in front of Worcester.

Worcester were rained off after 8 overs of the second innings and Colwall did not start at Redditch, so the rain was decidedly localised, and now Colwall have slipped to 3rd, 2 adrift of Worcester, but still in a good position with matches at home to Pershore and then Worcester in the next two weeks.

It does begin to look like a three horse race but Pedmore are within a win of the top as they were one of only two winners in the division as Dan Jones’ 94 not out helped them to beat 10 men Droitwich. Nomads and Hagley battled the elements for most of the day but in the end came off second best and in the final match, Harvington, who had not expected to play after the rain storms on Friday found, to their delight that not only did the weather permit a contest after all, they beat Evesham off the last ball to gain a first win and climb off the foot of the table.

Division Two 1st XIs – Burghill are the new leaders thanks to winning at Wormelow and they are now 1 point in front of Bewdley who had to be content with some bonus points in a rained off match at Rushwick.

Third come Oldswinford after a winning draw at home to Coombs Wood and they are 18 behind Bewdley and 3 in front of Worcester Dominies who continued their improvement with a decisive win at home to Lye who made just 65 thanks to 8-34 taken by Steve Miles.

The last two matches did not start. Next week, the end of the first half sees Burghill hosting Dominies and Oldswinford pay a visit to Enville.

Division Three 1st XIs – leaders Harborne picked up just 6 points and Stourport in 2nd only 5 to now stand 2 behind Harborne. So, it was Netherton who notched 24 thanks to 96 scored by Troy Lee, who now climb to 3rd place 1 back from Stourport.

Ross got a winning draw at home to Avoncroft in mid-table and the other two matches failed to start. Next week, Stourport visit Alveley and Netherton travel to Cleobury Mortimer, both sides in the bottom three, however, Harborne must visit 4th placed Chaddesley, themselves just 11 points behind as the season’s first half closes.

Division Four 1st XIs – Bartestree have opened up a 27 point lead over Halesowen after winning at home to Martley and Halesowen’s own jump to second was achieved with a victory at Romsley. 3rd placed Claverley slipped up at home to Bromsgrove for whom Matt Banham took 5-28 and they would have stayed level with Himbleton by not playing as Himbleton’s home match did not start just like the one at Five Ways.

The other game played was remarkable not for the fact that Old Hill were beating the bottom side, Oldswinford & Stourbridge Social 3rds but for the margin of their victory for after Recce Shilvock’s 180 and Iftikar Ali’s 111* had taken their total to 391-3 in 50 overs (no hint of a declaration there then?), they confirmed their tactics and bowled out their visitors for 85 in 21 overs to win by 306 runs.

Division Five 1st XIs Kempsey’ s match at Hanley Castle which they won comfortably to stay 24 points ahead, was the only one to reach a conclusion in this Division.

Only Barnards Green, who are in 2nd place, and Stourport started from the other games and they beat a retreat after tea time like many others.

In the 2nd XIs, Division one Colwall lost for the first time this season to Redditch who thereby improved to 4th place. Nomads returned to 2nd getting the better of a winning draw at Hagley and apart from Evesham’s concession to Cookley, the other games were all rained off.

In Division two, Enville stayed top despite being rained off and Alvechurch in second suffered the same fate with  joint 3rd  placed Netherton and Worcester their opponents respectively.

Three clubs in the bottom half, Bromyard, Lye and Coombs Wood improved and closed the gap on the top five with wins over Pershore, Dominies and Oldswinford respectively.

Division three 2nd XI leaders Bredon and Burghill both settled for draws with Bredon scoring one more point to edge clear thanks to Steve Buffin’s monster knock of 151 from his side’s 307. However, the Burghill boys had even more fun with Den Smith rattling up 176 not out as they totalled 355-4 and then held off Wormelow on 273-8 which included a century by Tom Cutler.

Avoncroft in 3rd beat Bartestree and closed the gap on the leaders and Harvington won again to climb to fourth, this time at Himley. The other games were off.

Division four 2nds saw another win for Martley over Ross on Wye by 3 wickets and Bromsgrove in 2nd place could only manage a winning draw and are25 behind.

Halesowen beat Tenbury thanks to Chris Woodhouse scoring 97 and Zeeshan Ahmed’s 7-44 was instrumental in Oldswinford beating Old Hill. Other games were off.

Division five 2nds - only Hallow and OEs played in this division and Hallow eased their worries and moved off the bottom with a 71 runs victory. 

The other cancellations mean that Stourport are still 2 ahead of Barnards Green who are 33 clear of Stourbridge.

In Division six, only Birlingham and Rushwick had any meaningful play with the former winning by 48 runs thanks to 81 scored by Mike Sloan and they are now 17 points in front of Canon Frome with the first half completed.

Division seven’s no play as 4 out of 5 games were rained off and Coombs Wood conceded to Pedmore in the other.

This means that Worcester is still 6 ahead of Nomads who are now joint 2nd with Pedmore.

Division Eight leaders Colwall and their opponents Cookley were the only game in this division to be called off and Evesham have jumped to 2nd pace with a win over Harborne and are now just 4 behind Colwall. Next come Bromyard who beat 4th ranked Bewdley by 7 wickets and Kidderminster are 5th after their winning draw at Worcester Dominies.

Division Nine had two games played which enabled Fiveways to take top spot after a win over Feckenham in a rain reduced match. Redditch are 11 behind as they were becalmed as were 3rd placed Enville but Harvington are up to 4th following a fine win at home to Bredon to complete a “three wins for Harvington” day, perhaps the first?

The KO Cups are nearing completion with the 1st XI final at Kidderminster on Monday 30th June between Worcester Nomads and Coombs Wood whilst the 2nd XI final a week later will be between Nomads and Belbroughton.
