Ledbury first XI kept their foot on the gas with a second win on the trot, this time by six wickets over Rushwick second XI.

Captain Josh Evans spearheaded the hosts at Orlham Lane on a blustery day.

The skipper's choice to field first on the bowler-friendly pitch proved wise, with Rushwick's top order disintegrating as the Ledbury bowlers went to town.

Evans picked up three wickets for just 26 runs off his nine overs, while Duncan Bell, Chris Willemstein and Jack Trattell all claimed a pair of dismissals each, which included a lovely stumping from Nick Gibbons.

Impressive fielding was also on display throughout the innings, with excellent catches from Chris Simcox and Fraser Renfrew-Clarke, however the best of the day belonged to Tom Hill, fielding at mid-off and diving full stretch to his left to take a stunning catch at a crucial points in the game.

Ledbury's reply at the crease saw a minor hiccup when Willemstein was caught behind in the third over.

However Evans and number three Tom Bowring quickly steadied the ship, amassing a 100-run partnership that brought the victory within reach.

Both displayed patience on a difficult batting pitch, striking some splendid shots around the outfield.

A composed 53 by Evans laid the foundations before his dismissal shortly after the drinks break.

Joining Bowring at the crease was Gibbons, pairing up for a 50-run partnership to chisel down Rushwick's total.

Despite Bowring being caught out for 67, Gibbons and Trattell held firm to finish on a disciplined 25 not out and a quickfire 16, respectively.

The stellar all-round performance puts Ledbury in the mix for a promotion spot.

The team will now cast its eyes to a clash with nearby rivals Canon Frome XI.
