WET weather on already soggy pitches meant that only two cricket matches were played across the county sides this weekend.

Bartestree & Lugwardine had a less than perfect start to their Worcestershire County League Division Two campaign as they were bowled all out for 87 off 31.2 overs at Belbroughton.

Dan Harris top scored for the visitors hitting 16 from 15 balls including two fours before being bowled out by Robert Hawk, who finished on bowling figures 3-7.

In response the hosts, based near Bromsgrove, started strongly with opener Tom Oliver hitting 30 from 57 balls before being bowled by Dan Harris and caught by David Robinson.

Fellow opener Steve Thomas finished on an unbeaten 27 as his side reached their target finishing on 88-2 from 30.2 overs.

Goodrich also completed their match to take top spot in the Marches League Division One with a three-wicket victory over Ross-on-Wye.

Ross were put into bat and got off to a poor start with opener Stuart Mair being taken by a leg before wicket decision from the bowling of Mark Bradford, who also took Graham Howls's wicket to leave the visitors at 2-2.

Fellow opener Michael Jeffryes put on a stand of 24 to top score while captain Jack Donovan finished on 22 and they were given 25 extras on their way to 100 all out from 27.1 over.

Top bowling figures from Goodrich were taken by Bradford who finished on 4-12.

In reply the hosts also lost two early wickets before a 22 for Adam McClarty set the way for an unbeaten 33 for top scorer Joe Provis who led his side to victory.

Goodrich eventually reached their target after 28.2 overs finishing on 101-7 with bowler Cameron Hill taking three of their wickets for 25 runs.
