Ledbury's first XI was condemned to a heart-breaking defeat to Burghill, Tillington and Weobley seconds.

The match, which took place at Orlham Lane this weekend, saw Ledbury put up a spirited display only to be outplayed by the opposition.

Captain Josh Evans won the toss and decided to bowl first, confident in the performances of the team's strong line-up of bowlers.

Duncan Bell led the attack with a series of fantastic deliveries, and earned himself a well-deserved wicket.

This was followed by Jack Trattel, who managed to take a pair of wickets for only 30 runs from his nine overs.

Spinner Chris Willemstein also got in on the wicket haul, securing two of his own, while Jack Cambridge, despite not taking a wicket, bowled brilliantly in an effort to restrain the Burghill batsmen.

For a time, it looked as though Ledbury had the game under control with Burghill at 176 for six, after 30 overs.

Unfortunately, fatigue seemed to hit the hosts, with the Burghill middle order batsmen seizing the opportunity to blast their innings to 279 for six after their 45 overs.

This total proved insurmountable for the Ledbury team, who posted a disappointing score of 110 all out.

Tom Bowring stood out from the rest, batting with grit and determination to a near half century of 45.

In contrast, Ledbury's second XI enjoyed continuing their winning spree, triumphing over Brockhampton fourth XI in a comprehensive victory.

Captain Rhys Gunter lost the toss but Ledbury managed to limit Brockhampton's score to 156 all out with commendable bowling.

The star of the show was Fraser Renfrew-Clarke, who bagged four wickets for just 19 runs from his eight overs.

With the bat, Ledbury made short work of the chase, requiring just four batsmen to seal the victory.

Skipper Gunter, the club's leading run scorer, starred in the innings with an unbeaten score of 75.

This, the team's fifth consecutive win, has catapulted them to the top of the league.

Going forward, the firsts are set to face Birlingham first XI away, while the second XI will host Barnards Green's fourth XI.
