COLWALL completed the double over fellow Worcestershire Cricket League Division One joint leaders Hagley as a nerve-wracking finale saw them clinch a narrow 20-run victory.

Despite ideal conditions at Stowe Lane both sides struggled to find their batting form in a low-scoring contest in which bowlers dominated.

But despite being dismissed for just 133 in the 41st over having elected to bat first Colwall defended their lowly total with a gritty display in the field that saw them home in a tight finish.

After openers Ben Cooke (15) and Nick Panniers (32) stroked 39 runs from the first 10 overs Colwall slumped to 74-5.

Ben Febery (13) resisted briefly before a flurry of runs in the tail from Dan Brierley (19) and Dan Newby (15).

But Colwall sealed victory in the 45th over after reducing Hagley to 87-5 and then bowling them out for 113 with Febery taking 3-10, Newby 2-17 and Mike Gooch 2-20.

Struggling Colwall seconds stay firmly in the Division Five relegation zone after a hard-fought 28-run defeat at Hagley seconds.

The hosts were aided by 30 wides as they scored 253 all out batting first.

Eddie Hill (1-35) bowled tightly and off-spinner Matt Morgan (4-36) broke through the middle order.

Idress Mohammad (43) and James Waters (35) gave Colwall a promising start before Will Bishop (32), Morgan (20) and Andrew Waters (30) kept up the chase but Colwall were all out for 225 with 20 balls remaining.

Colwall thirds are still awaiting their first win in Marches League Division Two after their bowlers were put to the sword in a six-wicket home defeat by Dales.

Steve Wright (32), Chris Conlon (51) and Menno Recordon (59no) helped Colwall to 184-6 but the target was passed in the 27th over despite 2-27 from Bruno Recordon.

Colwall fourths lost to Brockhampton fourths by nine wickets in Division Four after being inserted and dismissed for just 72 on a bouncy track.

Only Matt Hayes (15) and Myron Lawrence (16 not out) reached double figures.
