ANOTHER disappointing batting display has left Colwall back in relegation trouble after they lost by seven wickets to rivals Burghill, Tillington & Weobley in Division One of the Worcestershire County League.

The setback leaves Colwall third from bottom and with Eastnor now close on their heels, the Stowe Lane outfit know they need to perform better in order to avoid the drop.

Colwall made a solid, if sedate start, with openers Joe Blight and Nick Brown tied down early on.

Brown was the more fluent, scoring 29 off 46 balls, but then three wickets fell quickly.

Blight and Ben Febery both fell to excellent catches off Owen Morgan and Ben Parkinson.

James Abel (16) and Nick Panniers (28) rallied the innings briefly, but once they departed, Jack Myers worked his way through the middle order.

Colwall were eventually dismissed for 156, with Mover (3-27) and Myers (3-19) sharing six wickets from accurate spells.

Burghill made a confident start in reply before Mike Gooch sent Owens packing.

Gooch then claimed a fortunate wicket as he grabbed the rebound after Blight could only parry a drive from Jacob James, but Burghill then took the game away from their hosts.

The aggressive Myers steadily increased his tempo and finished unbeaten on 71 to claim the comfortable win.

Eastnor have given themselves a good chance of staying up after excellent bowling from Waqas Ahmed and Raheel Lone saw them beat Bewdley by 66 runs.

Ahmed finished with 5-10, while Lone also claimed three wickets.

Josh Emery was Eastnor's top batsman, scoring 27.

In Division Two, Bromyard fell to a humbling 262 run defeat against Coombs Wood, while Wormelow are still hovering above the relegation zone following a six-wicket reverse at Enville.

Bromyard had no answer to the stunning power of Carl Whyte, who smashed 190 off just 98 balls.

Coombs Wood eventually declared on 374-7 before skittling Bromyard out for just 112.

As for Wormelow, Josh Worsley scored a half century in their 185-6, but it was not enough to get over the line.

The defeat leaves Wormelow now just nine points above the drop zone.

Bartestree & Lugwardine's Division Three match against Alvechurch & Hopwood was called off.

Brockhampton, meanwhile, saw their Birmingham & District League Premier Division match at West Bromwich Dartmouth abandoned.

West Bromwich posted a very competitive 308-7 off 50 overs before the weather brought proceedings to a halt.
