Weekly Round-Up: 6th May

Weekend Summary

Wellington were given a rude introduction to life back in the Birmingham League with a heavy defeat on the road at Leamington. Meanwhile, the 2nds started their campaign strongly, dismissing Worfield II for just 77. The 3rds went down to a strong Albrighton by 30 runs, whilst the 5ths defeated Madeley III in a close match on Sunday. Due to rain at Iscoyd, the 4ths will have to wait until next week to get their season underway.
