BURGHILL, Tillington & Weobley maintained their charge in the Worcestershire County League Division One after running out 150-run winners against Herefordshire rivals Colwall.

After being placed into bat the Burghill top order wilted in the heat and were soon back in the pavilion.  

At 38-3, remedial work was needed and Barney Morgan and Mohammed Hassan did just that.

They took the score to 99 before Morgan was caught on the square leg boundary for 34. Out strode Ben Hawkes at number six.

Hawkes rattled up a quick-fire 60 off 52 balls with four fours and a six, before he was bowled going for a maximum.

Together with Hassan they took the score to 240, with a quick partnership of 141 runs off 116 balls that took the game away from Colwall.

Not deterred Hassan raced to an unbeaten century (108 not out), as Tim Walsh joined him to take the score to 275-5 wickets off 50 overs.  

Tim chipped in with an entertaining little cameo of 20 off 15 balls. Chasing a mammoth target, Colwall's batsmen were under immense pressure from the outset.

They could not build any partnerships and were eventually bowled out for 125 off 40.2 overs. Jack Collins scored a stylish 78 with 12 fours, but had little support from the other batsmen.

Hawkes bowled with pace and aggression for Burghill and finished with 4-16 off his ten overs, while Joel Aldridge snared 4-45 off 10 overs.

The win takes Burghill up to second place in the league standings, two points behind leaders Ombersley.  

In the Worcestershire County League Premier Division, Brokhampton suffered a narrow one-wicket at the hands of Chaddesley Corbett after seeing their target of 186 chased down.

Meanwhile, Bromyard were beaten by Old Hill by 110 runs after the hosts posted a target of 261 which they defended well.

Wormelow remain unbeaten at the GB Liners Marches Division One after putting in a dominant performance with the bat to beat visiting Ross-on-Wye firsts by 171 runs.

After being asked to bat first Wormelow rattled up 317-4 from their 45 overs. Opener Ed Melly was in fine form hammering a fantastic unbeaten 112.

Melly received good support from 15-year-old Archie Langford who hit an explosive 83 from just 63 deliveries as the pair combined to put on 128 for the second wicket.

Skipper Tom Cutler (72) joined Melly in a partnership of 138 for the fourth wicket as the runs continued to flow.

The pick of the Ross attack was Chloe Tingle who picked up 1-37 from her nine overs.  The Ross reply got off to a stuttering start and they slumped to 34-4 as Cutler (4-8) tore through their top order.

Ross did recover slightly but found the required run rate far too much as their innings eventually concluded on 146-5 from their 45 overs, opener Angus McIntyre finished on a dogged 81no from 141 deliveries.
