Weekly Round-Up: 18th June

June 18, 2024 News

Weekend Summary

It was a wet and wild Saturday but the 1st XI home match against Kidderminster was able to be completed in front of our guests at the VP Lunch. Wellington defended a low-score in a game reduced to 41 overs to earn a winning draw. However, the 2nd XI’s trip to Newport was abandoned after 10 overs; and the 4th XI’s home match against Wroxeter II also fell victim to the weather. The 3rd XI did get a game on at Column, but were unable to defend their score of 155-6 and fell to an eight-wicket defeat. On Sunday, the 5th XI lost by 52 runs in a high-scoring match at Worfield III.

PerformanCE of the Weekend

Dan Lloyd was the stand-out performer for the 1st XI, claiming three wickets and scoring 27 runs in a low-scoring match. His efforts helped his side get the better of the match with one of their nearest rivals in the table.


Sam Good hit a superb 49 for the 5th XI at Worfield – but unluckily for him he fell just short of that milestone. Well played, Sam!

  • Mark Downes continued his good form with 76 for the 5th XI. However, it was not enough to earn a victory after Oli Wood hit an unbeaten 160 for the opposition.
