IT was a case of one up one down for Droitwich Spa Cricket Club as rain ensured the firsts' relegation from the Worcestershire League’s top flight while the seconds dodged the showers to clinch promotion to Division One.

Only 6.2 overs were possible at Hagley before a downpour curtailed proceedings and confirmed the first XI's fate in Division One.

Ash Fearnall, who has scored more than 1,000 runs this season, was the man out as Spa reached 29-1 prior to the washout.

It was mission achieved though for the seconds as they went up and now face Saturday's thrilling title decider at Cookley who also secured promotion but lie 19 points behind.

A five-wicket win over Bromsgrove at St Peter’s Fields set up the cliffhanger as Spa restricted their opponents to just 116-7 from 50 overs.

Martin Woodward took 5-33 from 17 overs while 13-year-old Freddie Fallows just missed out on a deserved senior half-century as he dug in to score 49 not out for a youthful visiting side looking to the future.

Set 116 to win from 24 overs Spa reached their target with just four balls to spare.

Paul Bryan fell for 45 with just one run needed after James King earlier made 27.

Bromsgrove gained some revenge when their under 11s beat Droitwich in a thrilling County Cup final by just four runs.

Spa’s seniors also missed out on silverware when they were defeated by Pershore in the Worcestershire Over 45s Cup final.
