WORMELOW captain Tom Cutler says players need to show more commitment to the team after the village outfit narrowly stayed up in Worcestershire County League Division Two.

Despite losing by 56 runs to Belbroughton, Wormelow stayed up due to Lye throwing away a comfortable lead against Chaddesley Corbett.

Lye had their opponents on the ropes at 6-4 and 140-8, but a nine-wicket stand of 40 between Chris Mole and Matthew Yardley won the game for Chaddesley Corbett and send Lye down.

"If we put our full strength side out we wouldn't have been struggling, but we've had to field some second team players which is not fair on them or ourselves," said Cutler.

"Between July and August we won four out of six games and I thought we would have happily have stayed up.

"But Richard Stafford and Luke Sparrow didn't always play and Josh Worsley got injured.

"So it turned into a relegation dogfight but we managed to just stay up."

Five wickets from Jeewan Puri restricted Belbroughton to 176-7 off 50 overs and Cutler was confident his side would go on and win the game.

"We didn't turn up with the bat and our top five failed again and it was left to others to pick up the pieces," added Cutler.

Luke Jones top scored with 34, but only George Lancaster (14) and Matt Deem (11) got into double figures as Wormelow were skittled out for 120.

This was Cutler's maiden season as captain and he said enjoyed the role.

"I missed about eight games due to injury so Matt Deem and Ali Main took on the reigns, but it was good fun," he said.

"Hopefully I can be captain for a while and give the club a bit of continuity."

Bromyard were also not mathematically safe going into their final game of the season, but were never likely to go down.

They had to settle for a losing draw against Old Vigornians in a match that saw 539 runs scored.

Old Vigornians posted 273-7 off their 50 overs, with Greg Leighton and Jamie Abell both taking three wickets.

But despite some fine contributions from Rob Willis (75), George Leighton (55) and Greg Leighton (42no), Bromyard fell just nine runs short of winning the match.

In Division Three, Bartestree & Lugwardine finished their campaign with a two-wicket win over Malvern.

Skipper Marcus Aschcroft took two wickets to restrict Malvern to 190-6, but it took 49.3 overs for Bartestree to win the game.

Jack Summerside top scored with 76.
