That was quite a great start to the Worcestershire County Cricket League season with Wormelow beating the county rivals Bromyard by six wickets. Lachlan Hartley helped with the win, hitting 71 off 60 balls as Wormelow easily went past Bromyard’s total in the Division Two match.

Tom Cutler was Bromyard’s nemesis by snapping up five wickets for just 24 runs. Similarly, Elliot Williams also
helped himself to three wickets as Wormelow skittled Bromyard out for just 127. Josh van Rensburg top-scored fort Bromyard with 39, while opener Edd Oliver scored 30. A poor batting display cost Colwall as they slipped to second place in Division One following a losing draw against Droitwich Spa.
In a low-scoring clash, blighted by a prolonged downpour, Colwell's top order was punished for some loose shots as they were bowled out for a paltry 125 after being asked to bat. In reply, Droitwich was clinging on at 110-9, but was ahead on run rate and duly claimed 112 points, while Colwell had to settle for six.
Ben Chaplin hit a club record 211 out not as Bartestree claimed a winning draw against Barmards Green while Ross hammered Malvern by 129 runs. Chaplin’s knock beat the previous record held by Matt Aubrey while captain Ben Simpkin also struck 81 runs.
