Wellington 1sts are still looking for their first win of the season after they came up short at home to Dorridge. Dogged resistance from Ryan Fernando and Steve Brooks earned the 2nds a draw away to Forton. The 3rds failed to responde to a big total set by Sentinel II on their travels. Meanwhile, the 4ths were emphatically beaten by Bishops Castle at Orleton Park, being bowled out for just 39 runs. On Sunday, the rain interrupted an exciting match between the 5ths and St Georges IV, meaning the points were shared.
