OMBERSLEY remained top of Birmingham League Premier Division Two after their bowlers ensured a 24-run win over Bromsgrove in a county derby.

Opening batsman Liam Gwynne hit 71 in Ombersley’s 161 all out in 52.4 overs as veteran Gareth Williams took 5-25 and seamer Alex Wilkinson 3-35.

Early success for Gareth Andrew (3-36) and Arti Fiaz (3-36) saw Bromsgrove tumble to 97-8 before a ninth-wicket stand of 39 breathed life into the reply but it was ended on 136 when Williams (22) fell to Matt Davis (2-23).

A run later Tom Russell was dismissed and Ombersley had won.

Second-placed Leamington Spa beat basement boys Brockhampton by 39 runs.

Leamington were struggling on 80-6 when wicketkeeper Chris Calcott came to their aid with 96 from 55 balls.

Calcott and Matt Davison (29) added 70 for the ninth wicket but Leamington were finally all out for 223 in the 45th over, leaving Brockhampton with 65 overs to reach their target.

Skipper Nick Powell took 3-46 and then top scored with 74 as Brockhampton perished for 184.

The game was interrupted by rain with the Herefordshire side on 179-9 but when play resumed Powell was last man out with Nabeel Asghar (3-58) and Joe Midgley (3-64) the pick of the bowlers.

A half-century from Worcestershire's Xavier Clarke (50) was the main feature of Oswestry’s 185 all out against Barnards Green.

The rest of the home side’s line-up were dominated by spinners Taylor Pugh (5-31) and Ryan Tongue (3-51).

But without Worcestershire’s George Rhodes Green collapsed to 79 all out and lost by 106 runs with Lahiru Samarakoon claiming 7-29.

Kidderminster won by seven wickets at Shrewsbury in Premier Division One.

Batting first following an uncontested toss, Shrewsbury were restricted to 169-7 in 55 overs by a mean attack spearheaded by Barney Morgan (3-17).

George Garrett (48 not out) took Shrewsbury to their final total after they slumped to 79-6 but Kidderminster showed there were no problems with the pitch as they raced to success in just 25.5 overs.

Opener Connor Smith hit 57 but the highlight was a thrilling 98no from skipper Neil Pinner who struck 17 fours and three sixes.

His 53-ball innings took his total runs for the season to 635 and moved him to the top of the scoring charts in the top tier.

Half-centuries from Dominic Harding (91), Andrew Sutton (69no) and Matt Lamb (65) eased Barnt Green to 262-5 from 55 overs against Dorridge with David Ball taking 3-66.

In reply, Siddhesh Dixit (62) and Aarib Khan (61) shared a stand of 86 for the third Dorridge wicket but once they were parted at 137 Green chipped away at the rest.

They dismissed the visitors for 226 in 52 overs with Sutton taking 3-40 and Adam Hines 3-47.
