Kington strengthened their grip at the top of Worcestershire County League Division 1 with a comfortable six-wicket win at Chaddesley Corbett.

Kington cruised to victory in the 18th over, with Rhys Price hitting an unbeaten 21 and Ed Symonds, 24, after Australian seamer Craig Jones (6-30) had played a leading role in routing Chaddesley for just 83.

David Morgan weighed in with 17 for the leaders, who produced an impressive all-round display to move 28 points clear of second-placed Old Elizabethans.

Although six Chaddesley batsmen managed to reach double figures, they failed to take their scores beyond 15, and the innings finally folded in the 42nd over.

Kington captain Kevin Gwynne (2-52) gave valuable support to in-form strike-bowler Jones, who has now bagged 45 league wickets.

Luctonians' Australian, Michael Jeh, captured 6-57 to lead the Kingsland club to a five-wicket defeat of Worcester Nomads.

Jeh, who claimed seven victims the previous week, destroyed the visitors in a rain-affected match reduced to 40 overs a side. Jeh bowled 18 excellent overs when play finally got underway after a 75-minute delay.

He was backed up by Karl Pearson (2-34) and spinner Ed Rollings (2-7), who delivered a miserly 6.4 over spell, as Nomads were dismissed for 106 after 36 overs. G Whitby, 35, and D Austin, 27, were the leading run-getters for Nomads.

In reply, Simon Fletcher and Karl Pearson both fell cheaply before Steve Williams (32 not out) and Adam Last (30 not out) guided the fifth-placed Herefordshire club to the target in the 34th over.

Wayne Evans, 18, and Duncan Platford, 13, contributed before Last sealed the win with a lusty blow.

Chasing Bewdley's 253-6, home club Bromyard raced to 66-1 after 13 overs before heavy rain washed away their victory hopes.

Bromyard captain Ashley Bullock was undefeated on 45 from only 37 balls when the heavens opened with the match evenly poised.

Earlier, Charlie Coombes (86) and Paul Edwards (68) put on a 136-run opening partnership for Bewdley, who posted a useful total.

Former Eastnor seamer Nick Hitchings was ninth-placed Bromyard's most successful bowler, taking 2-47.
