RISING talent Harry Sockett scored his first century for Burghill, Tillington and Weobley accomplishing what many knew he was capable of.

The achievement came at home to Astwood Bank when despite posting a score of 249/6 the hosts were held for a winning draw, thanks largely to the knock by Sockett.

Sockett was joined by Ollie Maund opening the batting with his partner caught for four with the score on eight.

Luke Powell joined Sockett to start the repair job and they took the score to 82 before Powell was caught for a patient 35.

Sockett was playing the holding role and had good support from Owen Morgan 40 and Sam Williams 42 off 32 balls. 

Eventually the youngster was out in the 49th over chasing quick runs for a watchful but stylish 106 with 16 fours.

In reply Astwood Bank held on to their final wicket denying the hosts victory finishing on 216/9 with Oscar Darke taking 5-50.

Despite their spirit performance the previous week Burghill, Tillington and Weobley were beaten by four wickets at home to Enville this weekend.

Sockett could not repeat his heroics this week as he fell for 13 with fellow opener Maund hitting 31.

Fearing their tally was not enough bowler Oscar Darke hit an unbeaten 35 from 22 ball including six fours to take his side to 199.

Enville always had the chase in hand thanks to opener Daniel Sutton hitting 69 as the visitors sat comfortably at 107-3 and closed on 201/6 off 41.5 overs.

In the Worcestershire Premier Division, Brockhampton took the Herefordshire bragging rights as they took a winning draw against Colwall.

After being put into bat Brockhampton started well with opener Indiana Jerram hitting 54 from 74 balls to help them to 129-3.

The middle order were also up to the task with Tobias Van Den Heever (58) and Will Tanner (57) both hitting half centuries as the hosts finished on 293/6.

In reply Colwall lost opener Yuvraj Ahluwalia early to the bowling of Michael Harling (3-48) but wickets were then hard to come by.

Tom Neman (45) and Robert Cook (71) boosted Colwall to 179-4 but fell short of the winning target finishing on 222/7 off 50 overs.
