BARTESTREE and Lugwardine Cricket Club came back to earth with a bump in their second game of the Worcestershire County League.

In the field at Bredon, Adam Davies struck a huge blow bowling their skipper LBW for 19.

Some good fielding and questionable running resulted in a run out and wickets fell throughout the innings as each bowler picked up at least one.

A few good blows from the Bredon lower order pushed their score to 177, a score the visitors felt was below par.

However, Bredon bowlers attacked the stumps in an uncomplicated fashion reducing their visitors to 38-4 and then 103-9 in response.

Dan Harris (47) led the Bartestree attack but saw his side all out for 144 - beaten by 32 runs.

Elsewhere in Division Two Burghill, Tillington and Weobley finished on 254-6 in their win over Bromsgrove (230) boosted by a knock of 85 by Luke Powell.

In the Premier Division a knock of 67 for Max Foster helped Brockhampton to victory over Ombersley.

Meanwhile, in the Herefordshire derby Colwall were comfortable winners over Bromyard by 103 runs with Ben Cooke top scoring on 65.

This weekend sees the GB Liners Marches League begin with Wormelow hoping to retain their top division title.
