BURGHILL and Colwall remain struggling in the Worcestershire County League Division One after both sides suffered heavy defeats.

Burghill, Tillington and Weobley hosted league leaders Stourport and elected to field.

However, it turned into a good batting pitch with opener Greg Massingham putting on 28. Top scoring Samuel Foley then hit 44 including eight fours before being bowled by Oscar Darke and caught by Tim Walsh.

Ryan Derrick added 36 runs for the visitors before Darke struck again eventually finishing on bowling figures of 3-36 as Stourport were bowled out for 182.

In response opener and wicket-keeper Ben Owens was the only player to hit a respectable score of 36. However, with six players claiming ducks his side were all out for just 49.

Colwall joined Burghill in the bottom two after tumbling to 101 all out and defeated by seven wickets at Hagley.

Batting first, Colwall lost Joe Blight in the second over and never recovered as they slipped to 60-8 at one stage with only Ben Febery (20) and Ben Cooke (12) reaching double figures.

Ninth wicket pair John Card (20) and Mike Gooch (19) resisted stoutly but both fell to Hurst (2-10) as Colwall closed on 101 with 18 of the 50 overs remaining.

In response despite Febery taking two wickets the hosts reached their target finishing on 104-3 off 33.3 overs.

Bartestree & Lugwardine played out an incredible Division Two draw against Kempsey after their target of 245 was reached but not passed.

After being put into bat opener Wilf Munn put on a steady 43 before Ben Simpkin came in and hit 77 from 78 balls to put his side in a good position.

Wicket-keeper Andy Jones added to the score with an unbeaten 44 as they finished on 245-7 off 50 overs.

Remarkably Kempsey, who had looked beaten, got off to a flying start with opener Joshua Jones hitting 117 and despite no other big scores they edged towards the target.
