WORCESTERSHIRE League Division One leaders Colwall’s five-match winning run ended in dramatic style with a seven-wicket home defeat to mid-table Cookley.

Put into bat in ideal conditions, an inept batting display saw Colwall sent packing for just 61 in 16.5 overs.

They had shown batting frailty in the previous two wins only to be rescued by their bowlers but on this occasion were forced to bat first and decimated by the attack.

James Abel and Ben Wheeler were the only players into double figures with 17 each.

Jack McVey (5-19) and James Stanaway (3-8) tore through the batting with four falling without scoring.

Luke Dalley, Mike Gooch and Ben Febery took a wicket in reply but Paul Thomas (28 not out) sealed victory in the 18th over.

Mid-table Bromyard crashed by 70 runs at home to Pedmore after being bowled out for 144 in 34.3 overs.

David Taylor got a late 31 to top score with Ben Taylor taking 5-24 and Daud Islam 4-22.

Pedmore had set 214-9 despite 5-54 from Greg Leighton.

Worcester Nomads lost at Burghill, Tillington and Weobley by six wickets.

The visitors were bowled out for 107 in 32.2 overs with opener David White (28) top scoring as James Burston claimed 4-47.

Burghill won within 22 overs with 108-4.

Eastnor lost at Stourport seconds in Division Four after their total of 187-8 was passed in 37.5 overs. Mohammed Munir scored 58 for Eastnor and Mohammed Asim Ibrar 37.

Meanwhile, Colwall thirds put on a plucky display in Marches League Division Two at Woolhope but were undone by Will Tanner’s 4-20 and 122no in an eight-wicket loss.

Opener Steve Wright shared a fine stand with Menno Recordon (30) before he was stumped for 99 as Colwall reached 207-8 off 45 overs.

Harry Evans and Sam Lipton took a wicket each as Woolhope slipped to 14-2 in reply but Andrew Tanner (58no) and his son Will shared an unbroken third-wicket stand of 195 to seal victory in the 34th over.

Colwall fourths went down to visitors Burghill, Tillington and Weobley in Division Four.

But on Sunday Colwall beat hosts Brampton Bryan by 10 wickets in a one-sided National Village Knockout clash.

Gooch (4-17), Dan Newby (3-4) and James Febery (3-2) sent the home side sliding to 34 all out.

Ben Cooke (22no) and Evans (8no) took just 24 balls to pass the target.
