Tough going at Bewdley

Cookley first lost their place at the top of the Worcestershire County League with a disappointing losing draw at Bewdley.

In a rain-affected game Bewdley made 140-9 from 46 overs with Danny Soley the pick of the bowlers with 3-17. In reply the visitors fell just short of the runs required for maximum draw points, finishing on 65-8.

At Lea Lane the 2nds were thrashed by league leaders Belbroughton 2nds.

Put into bat, Belbroughton reached 177-7 in their rain-reduced allocation of 40 overs.Mike Wood was the pick of the bowlers with 4-37. Despite a strong batting line-up Cookley struggled from the outset and were all out for a paltry 71!

The one ray of sunshine though was the performance of the 3rds who went top of Division 7 North with a narrow win over Pedmore 3rds, who could only amass 94 in their 45 overs.
