IT is make or break for Brockhampton this week as they face two vital home games in Birmingham & District League Premier Division.

The villagers have been rock bottom for much of the campaign, but have a chance of execution over the Bank Holiday weekend.

First up, Brockhampton – who are 35 points from safety – face Kenilworth Wardens before entertaining Berkswell.

Last weekend, Nick Powell's charges went down to a heavy eight-wicket defeat to leaders Knowle & Dorridge.

Brockhampton made a competitive 238-6, with opener Adam Hewlett making a fine 85 off 81 balls.

But, Knowle & Dorridge's Alex Phillips went even better, smashing 147 off 137 balls as his team eased to their target with over 12 overs remaining.

After losing the toss, Brockhampton made a steady start, with Hewlett the aggressor.

By the time he departed, the visitors were 114-2 before Oliver Rogoff went for 14.

Nevertheless, Brockhampton still managed to score runs, with Joe Crichard scoring 25.

An excellent six-wicket partnership between Ian Bullock and Powell saw Brockhampton sail past the 200 mark, with both players scoring 40; Powell's coming off just 30 balls.

Luke Tulacz and Dominic Badger then added a few extra runs.

Brockhampton then had an excellent start wit the ball and removed opener George Worker for just one.

But any hope that the villagers would claim a memorable win soon evaporated, with Phillips and Ateeq Javid scoring runs at will.

The duo put on a stunning partnership of 222, with Javid hitting 76 off 83 balls.

Alson Weerapura took both of the Brockhampton wickets.
