WORCESTERSHIRE League Division Three looks like going right to the wire as the top four are separated by just 28 points.

A five-wicket haul from seamer Angus Guthrie and another half-century by in-form batsman Chris Drew helped Old Vigornians to their second win of the season over Worcester rivals Old Elizabethans seconds.

The eight-wicket win at New Road kept them in the promotion-chasing pack.

The Perdiswell side were dismissed for 160 after being put into bat on a good pitch.

Although Josh Nott made 44 and Paul Shearman 35, OEs struggled against an accurate OVs attack.

It was the first time Guthrie had bagged five wickets for the club as he finished with 5-41 off 14 overs.

Max Richardson and skipper Alex Parker picked up two wickets apiece.

OVs knocked off the target in fewer than half their overs for the loss of four wickets.

Drew top scored with 60 for his sixth half-century of the season.

Andy Bell, batting in his first league game of the season, was 26 not out at the end.

Netherton maintained a 16-point lead at the top after Danny Lowe (7-27) bowled out Kempsey to set up victory with the only resistance coming from Matthew Walters (103).

England physical disabilities star Ben Sutton (7-50) showed his class as he helped second-placed Barnards Green keep up with the pace-setters by beating Martley by three wickets.

Rushwick, guided by Lewis Hooper's 4-26, gained an important win at Redditch which moved them out of the relegation places at the expense of Stourbridge seconds who were beaten by Avoncroft as Craig Hughes took 5-39.
