ALL three Herefordshire sides enforced their promotion credentials in the Worcestershire County League Division One with convincing wins.

Colwall, Bromyard and Burghill, Tillington and Weobley currently occupy the top three spots with four games remaining.

Colwall retained their 18-point lead at the top following a crushing nine-wicket victory over Oldswinford and Stourbridge Social Club.

Seamers Andrew Robertson (5-26) and Jack Knight-Adams (4-19) did the damage to their visitors restricting them to 79 off 37 overs.

Fergus Cameron and Robertson soon put the issue beyond any doubt.

Cameron hit eight fours in his unbeaten 41, while Robertson capped another fine display with 23 not out.

Any slip from the leaders would open the door for Bromyard, sitting just 18 points off top spot.

After electing to bat Bromyard lost Ian Bullock for two with just 10 runs on the board.

However, a solid opening including a knock of 56 for Rob Willis helped them set a commanding total of 238 boosted by 30 from 30 balls by Gregory Leighton.

Cookley looked set to challenge the total when they reached 115-3 until the bowling of Zahid Saeed 6-22 saw wickets tumble and the visitors all out for 134.

Burghill, Tillington and Weobley sit in third, outside the promotion places, and kept pressure on their county rivals with a four-wicket win over Belbroughton.

Home bowler Hamish Cooke took 4-27 off his 15 overs to restrict their visitors to a target off 132-6 off 50 overs.

In reply despite skipper Owen Morgan falling for a duck the innings were recovered with a half-century by

Alex Hedges who led his side to their target.

The opposite scenario faces Brockhampton seconds and Bartestree and Lugwardine who are facing relegation from Division Two.

Skipper Ryan Trattell led a spirited Bartestree fight with a fine 51 off 71 balls and with the help of Ben Simpkin (44) they set a target of 177-4.

In response despite Trattell taking 4-53 and Marcus Ashcroft 4-45 Kiddy reached their target with two wickets in hand.

Meanwhile Brockhampton suffered a three-wicket defeat to Astwood Bank 2nd.
