Leamington 4th XI 245 for 9 beat Earlswood 3rd XI 162 for 8

Leamington fourth team coasted to a victory over Earlswood third string on Saturday. 
Leamington made a good start through Shaun Williams and Robert Lord who both passed 20 but were then dismissed. A typical mid-innings wobble brought Earlswood into the frame, but groundsman Anthony Kilroy set about restoring order. He made exactly 100, and received good support from George Hollingsworth (32*) as Leamington notched 245 - 9. For Earlswood Tyler Davisdon took 6 for 43, possibly the best figures for a female bowler in Cotswold League history!!
Earlswood never threatened Leamington's total as Lord and Cameron Mitchell took early wickets. Kilroy returned to the limelight with four victims, as Earlswood struggled in the middle order. A spirited, undefeated, 40 for Ryan Moore saw Earlswood end on 162 - 8.

Leamington Cricket Club Sunday XI 270 for 9 beat Corley A 112 for 10

Leamington's Sunday XI got of the mark in the Arden Premier League with an ultimately comfortable win at home to Corley.
Batting first, Leamington's openers rode their luck with both Matt Dale (31) and Manpreet Gill (35) given early lives. Jon Wigley carried on from the previous day and knitted the innings together, with support from Mark Davison (28). Wigley moved to an unbeaten 101 in the last over as Leamington set an imposing 270 for 9 in 40 overs. Callum Laverey took 5 for 61.
In reply Corley got off to a quick start aided by some wayward bowling. Paul Rowe applied the brakes initially, and off-spinner Jim Gethins cut through the middle order with three wickets. That man Wigley got into the act with two cheap victims, and captain Steve Dyer mopped up the tail as Corley were bowled out for 112 in the 26th over.
