BURGHILL and Colwall will fight for the final Worcestershire County League Division One promotion place in the final match of the season this weekend.

Colwall, who had looked destined for the title last month, suffered their second league defeat in as many weeks on Saturday to Droitwich Spa, allowing Bromyard to clinch the league honours.

Burghill, Tillington and Weobley sit just nine points behind Colwall going into the final match.

Last weekend a stand of 133 from opener Ben Owens helped Burghill sweep aside Coombs Wood, after setting a target of 256-9.

With the ball Hamish Cooke took (5-42) and James Burston (3-49) as the visitors fell well short on 167 off 35.4 overs.

Meanwhile, Colwall’s title ambitions were shattered after they crashed to a resounding six-wicket home defeat by lowly Droitwich.

Against a side still battling relegation, Colwall elected to bat on a good wicket, but once again suffered a familiar batting collapse.

Only an unbeaten 92 from Ben Wheeler helped to give Colwall any hope as they set a target of 219-8 off their 50 overs.

With the ball Colwall were equally as unsuccessful as Droitwich openers Martyn Davies (89) and Max Young (101) put on an opening wicket stand of 172.

Andrew Robertson (3-48) did start to take wickets, but it was too late as the visitors cruised home on 221-4.

However, the day belonged to new champions Bromyard, who have only suffered three defeats out of 21 league matches.

Their latest triumph came with a 60-run victory over Hagley, despite only defending a target of 159-9.

Three early wickets left Bromyard struggling at 20-3 before Zahid Saeed came to the crease and hit a steady 75 off 143 balls, eventually losing his wicket as he ran out of batting partners.

With the ball Saeed was devastating wiping out the Hagley middle-order and taking 5-24 as the visitors fell for 99.
