EASTNOR claimed a vital win against high-fliers Worcester to keep alive their hopes of staying in Worcestershire County League Division One.

Fine bowling from Raheel Lone (3-22) and Waqas Ahmed (3-23) saw Worcester skittled out for just 158.

However, if it wasn't for Aarsh Jha and Ahmed, who made 54 and 46 respectively, Eastnor would not have got anywhere near their total.

Opener Jha made 54, while the big hitting Ahmed smashed 46 off just 28 runs to help Eastnor to a two-wicket win.

It leaves the village side 22 points off safety with five games remaining.

Just above the relegation zone are Colwall, who succumbed to a 53 run defeat to Hagley.

Colwall were bowled out for just 136, despite captain Ben Wheeler making a fine half century.

Other than Wheeler, the only other players to get into double figures were Jon Gooch, Ancil Nedd, Ben Febery and James Abel.

Gooch was also the pick of the Colwall bowlers, taking 4-44.

Burghill, Tillington & Weobley have no such relegation concerns, with the county side tidily placed in mid-table.

On Saturday, they comfortably beat Cookley by 64 runs.

Barney Morgan was the star of the show by scoring a half century and taking four wickets.

Toby Wildig was the top scoring batsman though with 53, while Jacob James and Tyler Garrard both made 31.

In Division Two, Bromyard now have breathing space following a dramatic win over Bredon.

It looked like Bredon's score of 297 would be too much for Bromyard, with Martin Hill top scoring with 87.

But Bromyard – who were bowled out for just 45 in their previous game – found their form and managed to get to their target.

Captain Edd Oliver finished unbeaten on 83, with Ed Smith (58) and Zahid Saeed (51) also making useful contributions.

It was a bad day for Wormelow though, who fell to a convincing nine-wicket loss to Chaddesley Corbett.

Wormelow posted 171-8 off their 50 overs, with Matt Deem top scoring with 31.

But Chaddesley Corbett had no trouble getting to their target, achieving it in just 19.1 overs.

Waqur Ahmed smashed 89 runs off just 48 balls, while Mohammed Sajid scored 60 off 68.

Bartestree & Lugwardine meanwhile enjoyed a comfortable seven-wicket win over Himley in Division Three.

Captain Marcus Ashcroft took 3-18 and Dan Harris 3-25 as Himley were bowled out for just 125.

In reply, Ben Simpkin hit an unbeaten 55 as the villagers got to their target in just 20 overs.
