A CENTURY from Glyn Harrhy saw Brockhampton Seconds stay in the Birmingham & District Premier League after beating Halesowen by 96 runs.

The Herefordshire side knew they had to win to stand any chance of beating the drop and, with Astwood Bank's match against Kenilworth Wardens being abandoned, they achieved their task.

Charlie Scott also hit an unbeaten 72 and Max Porter 64 as Brockhampton posted a very competitive 280-4.

Despite a fine 84 from Jack Roberson, Halesowen – who finished bottom of the division – got nowhere near reaching their target and were bowled out for 184.

Brockhampton's first team meanwhile finished their season with a nine wicket loss to Barnt Green thanks to some fine bowling from Joshua Poysden.

Worcestershire's Daryl Mitchell was the first Brockhampton batsman to go for 17 and when Henry Langford and Ashley Bullock went, the villagers were 69-3.

That soon became 74-6 after Ian Bullock, Nick Powell and Adam Hewlett went, with further wickets soon being taken.

Alex Hinkley went for 18 and Jamie McIlroy one to leave Brockhampton at 95-9, with Alston Weearapura then going for a duck.

Dominic Badger made a resilient 17 off 25 balls before becoming Poysden's seventh victim.

An excellent unbeaten stand of 61 from just 26 balls from James Psarakis then saw Barnt Green comfortably home.
