TEENAGER Ben Gillett celebrated his 15th birthday in style for Burghill, Tillington and Weobley seconds taking a hat-trick off just over three overs.

Not content with this, he wrapped up the match for the seconds bagging six wickets for 18 off 7.1 overs as his side skittled out Bromsgrove for just 65 in their Worcestershire County League Division Seven match.

Earlier in the afternoon Bromsgrove fourth won the toss and asked the hosts to bat.

The start was low key as openers Rob Garrard and Denholm Smith found it difficult before the former was stumped for 23 with the score on 70.

Quick wickets then fell as we went from 70 without loss to 105-4. 

Jake Kinderman joined Smith and they took the score to 200 at a run-a-ball before the latter was bowled for 89 off 99 balls with 16 fours.

A century was for the taking but for a momentary lapse of concentration denied Smith and Kinderman soon followed for a patient 42 and then the fireworks started.

Alex Powell (81) and Arshad Bhat (22) added 80 runs in 34 balls with both batsmen showing off their hitting with their side ending on a formidable 328-9 off our 45 overs.

In reply, Bromsgrove never got going and were skittled out for 65 in 27.1 overs.

Meanwhile, in Division Two the Burghill, Tillington and Weobley firsts were on the opposite end of the score line suffering a 132-run defeat at Harborne.

After putting the hosts into field Burghill struggled with the ball with openers Mark Whitsey (40) and Arpit Bhargava (30) setting the tone as Harborne set a tough target of 262/8 off their 50 overs.

In reply the visitors lost wickets throughout and only Owen Morgan (70) could save their embarrassment as they were skittled out for 130.

Bartestree & Lugwardine had better fortune as they took a home victory by 120 runs over Himbleton.

The Herefordshire side were put into bat and despite openers Matthew Tulacz (25) and Charlie Cole (46) getting them off to a good start wickets started to fall.

Sitting at 115-6 the visitors looked in a good position until wicket keeper Dave Robinson hit an unbeaten 44 and along with Dan Harris (32) they boosted the total to 205/9.

With the ball Tom Strangward (3-7) and Sam Bowen (3-34) had impressive spells and skittled the visitors out for 85.

In the Premier Division a four-wicket defeat for Brockhampton dent their top three hopes by runaway league leaders Stourport-on-Severn.

Colwall dropped to the basement of the Premier Division after being beaten by 25 runs at Ombersley.
