ZAHID Saeed clinched a century as Bromyard made it two wins from two in the Worcestershire League Division Two to move into the top two placings.

After hitting 74 last week during his side’s victory over Bartestree and Lugwardine he held his wicket on 118 as Bromyard set a target of 237-5.

In reply Bredon, who had reached 104-4 were eventually skittled out for 174 off 37.5 overs thanks to bowling figures of Josh Van Rensburg 5-33 and Will Yarnold 4-61.

Bartestree & Lugwardine recovered from last week’s defeat to take a narrow four runs victory over Droitwich Spa.

After being put into bat openers Ben Simpkin (40) and Chris Tulacz (24) put a stand of 67 for the opening wicket before a series of ducks in the middle order saw them bowled out for 156.

In response Droitwich Spa also started strongly on 70-2 before their middle order also failed to add any runs and thanks to the bowling of Tom Strangward (4-52), Marcus Ashcroft (3-29) and Ryan Trattell (3-37) they were skittled out four runs short of their target.

Wormelow also struggled with the bat and fell to a 84 runs defeat over Belbroughton.

After being put into the field in-form seamer Ali Main (1-26) struck early for Wormelow before the visitors took some control with a second wicket stand of 58.

A couple of quick wickets for Jeewan Puri and Karim Alee (1-19) saw the Belbroughton innings stall on 75-3.

When Findlay Williams removed top scorer Ryan Price for 65 in the 35th over it appeared that the momentum had swung in favour of the home side.

Opening bowler Elliott Williams (1-53) returned to pick up a late wicket and Puri (4-42) completed a fine 15 over spell as the visitors innings concluded on 195-8 from their 50 overs.

After last week’s successful run chase Wormelow were confident of knocking off the required runs at a rate of just under four runs per over. However things didn't go to plan for the home side as wickets tumbled on regular basis after Richard Stafford (19) and Ed Melly (15) had got the innings off to a solid start.

Wormelow slumped from 38-1 to 62-8 in the space of 11 overs. Elliott Williams (23no) and Main (22) put together a 38 run partnership for the ninth wicket to give a bit of respectability to the score before Wormelow were finally all out for 111 in the 39th over.

In Division One, Colwall suffered a seven wickets defeat at the hands of Stourport-on-Severn after setting a target of 166 with 46 coming from James Abel.

Finally Eastnor suffered a 153 runs defeat at the hands of Alvechurch and Hopwood in Division Three.
