Elliott Williams also took two wickets for Wormelow, with the other wickets coming from captain Tom Cutler, Luke Sparrow and Alastair Main.

The only wicket to fall was Luke Jones, who went for a duck; Jacob Redsull taking the wicket.

Eastnor also had a vital win in Division One, with captain Tariq Jamil's excellent 113 helping them to a 51-run win against Burghill, Tillington & Weobley.

Jamil scored more than half of Eastnor's total, with the villagers bowled out for 222.

Waqas Ahmed also contributed with 34, with opener Mohammad Hasnain scoring 15.

Gregory Penning was Burghill's top bowler by taking 4-17.

However, Eastnor's 222 proved to be enough, with Burghill, Tillington & Weobley bowled out for 171.

Ahmed has been key to Eastnor's resurgence lately and his 4-34 proved to be vital as they look to stay up.

Sajil Ali also snapped up three wickets, with Barney Morgan (44) top scoring for Burghill.

Eastnor are now just 18 points from safety and have a huge game against rivals Colwall this Saturday.

Colwall are just above the relegation zone, although they will go into the game in confident mood following a fine 65-run over high-fliers Worcester.

Vice-captain James Abel and Ben Butler took the batting honours with an unbeaten 66 and 42 respectively as Colwall built a competitive total of 215 batting first.

Despite losing Joe Blight early on, Colwall began to thrive as Nick Brown and Butler added 56 for the second wicket before Brown was dismissed for 28.

Butler took his tally to 42 before he was caught and when Ben Wheeler, Fergus Cameron and Ben Febery went, Colwall were reeling at 110-5.

But Abel then found his form and with useful support from Ancil Nedd (13) and Johnno Gooch (18), Abel began to dictate in the last 10 overs.

With a useful total to defend, Colwall turned in an equally impressive performance in the field as Daniel Newby ripped through the Worcester attack.

Worcester were eventually bowled out for 150, with Newby taking 4-26.

Bartestree & Lugwardine, meanwhile, saw off Astwood Bank Thirds by four wickets to keep their faint Division Three promotion hopes alive.

Sam Bowen (3-9) and captain Marcus Ashcroft (3-32) were the star Bartestree bowlers as the Herefordshire side bowled their opponents out for 146.

Wilf Munn then top scored with 41 and Rauri Wargent 32 as Bartestree claimed the 20-point win.
