Summary of results Monday 25th August 2014

So, just as we hoped for an exciting second game in a two game weekend, part of the season finale, the rain Gods had other ideas. Not a single ball was bowled anywhere!

All of which is great news for those sides at the top of their respective divisions as they plan to do it all again next week, when the state of play will be as follows:-

  • Division One 1st XI leaders Worcester will be crowned Champions if they gain four points at home to rivals Worcester Nomads.
  • Division Two 1st XI has been won as a result of yesterday’s rain by Burghill and Tillington, congratulations to them, trophy presentation next Saturday.
  • Division Three has some distance to travel with three games left but Harborne have a very healthy 27 points lead which could be extended next week.
  • Division Four is similar but Bartestree are 37 points ahead and looking favourites with three matches to play.
  • Division Five’s top two are still only separated by a cigarette paper, or three points. With the final round being played next Saturday, Kempsey can clinch the title by winning at home to Hanley Castle and Barnards Green travel to Stourport 3rds hoping for a slip up at Kempsey.

In the 2nd XIs, Division one is still too close to call with Worcester Nomads, Colwall, Stourport, Hagley and Redditch still in contention. Similarly, in division two, Netherton are being closely chased by Enville, Pershore, Bromyard and Harborne.

Division three leaders Burghill have a 40 points lead over Bredon but in Division Four, with three games left, Bromsgrove, Martley, Old Vigornians or Kidderminster could all still win the title.

In Division Five seconds, the title will be decided at Barnards Green who entertain Stourport 4ths holding just a nine points lead over their visitors.

One match each left in Divisions six and seven and the leaders of Six, Canon Frome hold a 19 points advantage over Birlingham and in Seven, Worcester Nomads are in front of Hagley by 8 points and Enville by a further 9 with one match to play.
