A HEAVY RAINSTORM resulted in Wormelow dropping vital points and falling to fourth in the battle for GB Liners Marches League Division One honours.

The title hopefuls had looked to be heading towards a 10th win from 14 matches after setting a total of 296-9 off their 45 overs until the rain descended and the match was abandoned.

A solid innings with the bat saw Matt Deem, Jasper Linley-Adams and Edmund Inkin all contribute with over 30 runs each, but it was a knock of 94 runs for James Snow that put them in pole position.

In reply Strollers were 14 balls into their innings on 5-0 when the rain arrived.

That left Wormelow with just 10 points from the match while their rivals won.

Garnons are now top after dealing Kington a heavy blow in the title race with a slender two-wicket win.

A century from the reliable Kington skipper Michael Green along with contributions by Wayne Morgan (46) and

Robert Stokes (49) looked to have set them a good target of 246-5 off their 45 overs.

Despite Green taking two early wickets Garnons also took advantage of a good batting pitch with

Paul Williams high scoring on 89 and James Bolton (47no) as they raced towards their target.

Luctonians maintained their title push and are just seven points behind the new leaders after a resounding 234-run win over Abergavenny & Crickhowell.

Captain Pete Griffiths hit a century for the reigning champions and Ian Probert added 61 as they set a target of 332-8.

In reply Griffiths and Subagar Etnam both took three wickets as they skittled the visitors out for just 98 runs.

Goodrich were in equally unforgiving mood as they set aside Glangrwyney to remain in the title hunt.

Knocks of 49 for James O'Brien and 47 by Andrew Brown as they set a decent target of 205.

With the ball Joe Provis took the final three wickets off just over two overs as their visitors were skittled out for 113.
