Colwall move up to third place
10:21pm Thursday 19th June 2014 in Sport
COLWALL continue to lead the Herefordshire challenge in Division One of the Worcestershire County League.
The Malvern Hills side hammered Harvington by eight wickets after South African left-arm spinner Wehan Joubert (5-50) led the way in bowling out the home side for 134.
Tom Coleman led the way as Colwall eased home, receiving good support from James Abel (37 not out) and Nick Panniers (36).
The win takes Colwall up to third place in the table but it's not such a happy position for Bromyard who are one place above the drop zone after coming off rather worse in a rain-affected draw at Pedmore.
The home side's Dan Taylor cracked exactly 100 as the home side compiled 324-8 from their 50 overs.
Ahmed Jamal was the pick of the Bromyard bowlers with 3-78.
Although Ashley Bullock was holding firm on 20 not out, Bromyard struggling on 69-5 when the finish came.
In Division Two, Burghill &Tillington had cause to be grateful to the rain as they were on 63-6 in reply to Oldswinford and Stourbridge Social's 183.
Alex Hedges took 5-20 for the villagers.
Australian Jamie Banfield was in the runs again for Wormelow, stroking 112 as he shared in an opening stand of 219 with Ben Owens.
Wormelow's total of 301-6 proved far too much as Elliott Williams followed up an unbeaten 58 with 3-14 to help bowl the home side out for 188.
Matt Aubrey scored an unbeaten 103 as Bartestree & Lugwardine cemented top spot in Division Four with a 151-run win over Oldswinford & Stourbridge Social 3rd.
