Normal service was resumed by Leamington 4th XI as they began their CHL Division 5 campaign with a 10 wicket win over Winchcombe 2nd string. 

Batting first, Winchcombe made a sticky start as none of the top five batters reached double figures, as Leamington's debutants Craig Patterson and Steve Axcell made early inroads. Axcell took 3 for 10, before Winchcombe recovered through Dear (45) and Andrews (27). The spin trimuvirate of James Wilson (2 - 19), Mark Ryan (3 - 33) and Wayne Killian (1 - 25) turned the innings back in Leamington's favour as Winchcombe were dismissed for 139.
Leamington's openers set about the target with gusto. Last year's hero, Billy Hallett, batting with a broken hand following an altercation with a wall, hit the bowling to all parts, whilst Mark Reynolds played second fiddle rotating the strike with elan. Hallett ended on 106*, and Reynolds on 22 undefeated, as Leamington breezed to a 10 wicket win with less than half the allocated overs used.
