Worcestershire County Cricket League

Summary of results Saturday 12th July 2014

The weather was mild if muggy and several games ended in draws so most people were happy as the top divisions started their first round of return matches.

In Division One 1st XIs, Pershore and Worcester still forge onwards with just a point between them after wins at Droitwich and Colwall respectively. However, it was Worcester who edged one point ahead after a 24 points haul at Colwall in a tight game so they head Pershore who thrashed Droitwich by 10 wickets after inserting their hosts and so gaining 20 points.

Colwall, having lost to both the top two in the past two rounds are still 3rd, 43 points behind Pershore, but Pedmore have closed the gap to 4 points in the race for third place after they had a winning draw at Hagley. The mid-table sides are Worcester Nomads, after a first win in six weeks at Harvington and they are 1 ahead of both Hagley and Belbroughton who dealt another blow to bottom side Bromyard, dismissed again for under 100 and now at least 24 points adrift of safety.

In the final match, Redditch put some daylight between themselves and the bottom four scrapping for survival with a winning draw at Evesham thanks to Francois Mostert’s unbeaten 103.

Division Two 1st XIs – Burghill extended their lead over Bewdley to 7 points after they gained a valuable and exciting winning draw at Lower Park with Bewdley ending the 100th over 10 runs short with the last pair at the crease.

Oldswinford are 3rd, 3 points adrift of Bewdley after they beat Feckenham thanks to 104 scored by Dave Haywood. Worcester Dominies are 4th following a fine win at Cookley after Jon Hancock made 168* to steer the Dominies home and they are 39 points from the top and 16 ahead of Lye in 5th place. Lye beat Malvern to overtake Enville after the latter had to settle for a draw, despite 115 from the bat of Greg Tomkins, against a spirited display by Rushwick which lifts Rushwick to 11th, one point more than Malvern but 22 behind Feckenham.

The final match saw Carl Whyte score 132 in vain for Coombs Wood as their total was chased down by Wormelow. Next week, Burghill receive Coombs Wood whilst Oldswinford entertain Lye and Bewdley travel to Dominies in two table topping clashes.

Division Three 1st XIs – leaders Harborne thrashed bottom side Tenbury with five more wickets for Mohammed Tausif and Stourport maintained their push for promotion with a win at Avoncroft. These two are a win in front of Bredon who had three extra overs at Old Vigornians but could not force a victory after Martin Hill had made 100 for them.

The performance of the day came from another Mo, Mohammad Saddiq who claimed 7-57, including a hat-trick, to stay top of the league’s leading wicket takers for 2014. His side, Chaddesley are 4th, 6 points behind Bredon and 35 off the top after they beat rivals Netherton thanks to Mo’s wickets and also Rajib Lodh’s 85.

In the other games, Cleobury beat Ross thanks to 119 from Ben Griffiths and Alveley recorded their first victory of the season beating Alvechurch and so putting 29 points between themselves and Tenbury at the bottom of the table.

Next week, Harborne go to Netherton and Chaddesley to Ross whilst second placed Stourport entertain 3rd placed Bredon in the sunshine at Walshes Meadow.

Division Four 1st XIs – Bartestree and Lugwardine returned to winning ways with a victory at Himley, Himbleton stay 2nd, with a win at home to Romsley thanks to Mike Rogers who made 87 and despite Romsley’s Jon Stanaway again scoring 103.

Next come Claverley who got a winning draw at Kidderminster and Bromsgrove are 4th after they beat Oldswinford and these are just ahead of 5th placed Five ways who thrashed Halesowen by 8 wickets. The final match saw a win for Old Hill at Martley.

Division Five 1st XIs Kempsey thrashed a poor Old Elizabethans side by 246 runs thanks to 120 from skipper Zak O’Neill and 84 in 48 balls from Raheel Lone and they remain 24 points ahead of Barnards Green’s blend of youth and experience who won an entertaining and high scoring match at West Malvern. Next come Hanley Castle where father and son Grant and Rory Mathews scored most of the side’s runs to guide them to victory at Stourbridge and Stourport are a distant 4th having held on for a draw at home to Hallow after Greg Fowler made 99 for the visitors. In the final match, Astwood bank beat Barnt Green and the Hanbury based side are now in 5th.

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

In the 2nd XIs, Division one Worcester Nomads stayed top after a winning draw at home with Cookley in which Guy Davies cracked an unbeaten 165 and in total there were five draws in this Division. Stourport slipped to third as they had a losing draw with 4th placed Colwall and Hagley could not take the final Pedmore wicket, despite Ian moss scoring 125 not out, or they would now be leaders.

Nineteen points cover the top 6 and Redditch had a similar experience to Hagley in not being able to take the final Evesham scalp despite 6-52 from Greg Chinn.

In other games, Droitwich won their first victory and Bewdley had two centurions, Robin Drake and Jon Elmer, but still had to settle for a draw as Belbroughton got within 10 with 5 wickets down.

In Division two, leaders Enville have been cut back after they lost at Pershore with Alexander Brown scoring 98 not out and Darren Critcher taking 6-41 for the home club. This has allowed Netherton, winners over Lye, to close the gap to just five points and they head Alvechurch in third who themselves also lost ground by losing at home to 4th placed Bromyard and are behind Netherton by 9 points.

Elsewhere, Harborne crushed Dominies who stay rooted to the foot of the table, Coombs Wood beat Worcester with 123 not out from Jon Clifford and Feckenham ran up 330-6 including Centuries for Mo Idrees and Nick Fowkes.

Division three 2nd XI leaders Burghill are still 15 points clear as they thrashed 11th placed Alveley and second placed Harvington beat Romsley. For Burghill, who scored 257-0 declared in just 29 overs, Ian Graham retired hurt with 117. They need not have worried about saving overs to bowl out their visitors however, as Alveley made just 50 in 17 overs.

Harvington’s Simon Rickett scored 116 in his side’s 350-6 declared and third placed Bredon are now 9 points behind Harvington after they won at Claverley.

Elsewhere Bartestree and Wormelow had regulation wins over Himley and Avoncroft respectively and Malvern beat Chaddesley.

Division four 2nds leaders Martley won at old Hill as did Bromsgrove at Oldswinford and thee two are out in front as the second half begins. Kidderminster are in third after they won a high scoring match in the final over against Old Vigornians for whom Rizwan Ashraf made 103.

KVCC have overtaken Halesowen who lost at Five Ways OES with even less balls remaining and in the other games, Ross beat Cleobury and Himbleton beat Tenbury.

Division five 2nds – Stourport beat Hallow to stay in front of Barnards Green who had a winning draw with West Malvern and the top two now have a gap of 29 ahead of Stourbridge who defeated Hanley Castle. 

In other games, Kempsey beat Old Elizabethans and Barnt Green beat Astwood Bank.

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

In Division six, Birlingham and Canon Frome are still setting the pace despite both being held to draws. Birlingham, with 143 not out from Alan Keylock when they batted, still need two Stone wickets and Canon Frome, following 125 not out from Andy Rogers were held up by Cutnall Green’s defensive tactics.

So Birlingham lead Canon Frome by 9 and then come Ombersley, 25 points back, after they beat Highley. Rushwick are 5th following a win against Droitwich and in the final match Netherton remain bottom after losing at home to Harborne.

Division seven is still very close after Enville slipped at home only gaining winning draw over Belbroughton and Pedmore and Worcester also drew. This has allowed Worcester Nomads for whom Nic Lloyd took 5-16 to jump to the summit, as they cruised past Malvern. In mid-table, Hagley beat Pershore at picturesque Broadwas and Redditch had their game conceded by Coombs Wood.

Division Eight joint leaders Bewdley won at Harborne and now head Colwall who were denied victory by Worcester Dominies resolute defence by 9 points. Evesham are third, three behind Colwall as they also drew, thanks to 109 scored by Jack Haines but could not take the final Bromyard wicket to seal victory. In the other match Cookley beat Kidderminster at Winterfold.

Division Nine leaders Redditch are still in front after their match was conceded by Bromyard and Enville are 2nd as they beat Five Ways and Bredon beat Feckenham.

The 2nd XI KO cup final was won by Worcester Nomads who defeated Belbroughton last Monday by 4 wickets.
