Burghill, Tillington and Weobley firsts had to settle for a losing draw after an entertaining game against Lye which saw 568 runs scored between the sides including 75 fours and 17 sixes.

Lye were asked to bat and took their score to 46-3 when Kamran Mehram (106) joined the fray.  Sixty-seven balls later, he had raced to a century, with 14 fours and six sixes.

At 220-8 the hosts had hope of hitting the target before Muhammad Wali (61) strode out and gave the large crowd a demonstration of clean hitting to boost Lye to 294.

Confidence was evident in the home camp when Harry Sockett (73) and Clive Chadhani (42) started well in a 123-run opening partnership.

Barney Morgan (70) and Mohammed Hassan (58) then came together in a 102-run fourth wicket partnership, but Burghill fell 21 runs short of their target finishing on 274-8.

Brockhampton firsts clinched victory in another thriller against unbeaten rivals Old Elizabethans in the Worcestershire Premier League.

Brockhampton won the toss and elected to bat with skipper Sam Johnston (33) and Max Foster (21) helping them along with an important partnership of 63.

The middle order started well with George Mokler (29) and Jamie Burgess (48) running well between the wickets and taking the strong spin attack of the opposition.

However, no batsman went on to make a big score. Old Elizabethans CC struck back causing a middle order collapse losing four wickets for only one run with Brockhampton limping to a total score of 179 all out.

Old Elizabethans got off to a strong start after losing an early wicket, racing to 66-2. Wickets from Tom James and Charlie Williams (5-39) started another unlikely comeback for Brockhampton.

Indy Jerram then took the scalp of dangerous captain Taylor Pugh to put Brockhampton in command.

Williams' spell was too good for the visitors as he bowled Brockhampton to another victory dismissing them for 155.

Elsewhere Brockhampton seconds took victory over Old Vigornians by three wickets with Glynn Harry taking 3-24.

Brockhampton thirds beat Bromyard thirds by 107 runs and the fourths were beaten by a strong Droitwich Spa fifths.

Burghill, Tillington and Weobley thirds had 13-year-old Rufus Darke to thank for their 42-run victory at Bartestree & Lugwardine thirds in the GB Liners Marches Division Three.

Darke and Matt Pugh opened the innings and put on 81 before the latter was out LBW for 42.

Wickets fell at regular intervals after the solid start, but Darke continued untroubled and reached his sublime maiden ton at a run-a-ball.  He was eventually out for 121 off 118 balls with 17 fours as his side finished on 217-7 before bowling out Bartestree for 175-8.
