Alcester & Ragley (150-4) 1st beat Earlswood (148 all out) by 6 wickets

First team match report v Earlswood away.

The 1sts arrived to find our hosts in full warm up mode and it continued for a good 30 mins - boy they looked good at catching and throwing. A&RPCC won the toss and elected to bowl on a mossy dry wicket. Ragley got an early reward as Richard Layton cleaned bowled the opener who played a full blooded drive to a ball that moved and pinned back his off stump 2nd ball of the match. Numbers 2-5 followed in similar fashion through a mixture of bowled and lbws all from the golden arm of Layton who took 5-18 in his 10 overs in a superb spell. Earlswood 60-5 after 20 overs. Adam Warbrick joined the fray at this point with his brand of right arm slow bowling and picked up 4 wickets with good catches by Tim Jackson Dave Pilkington and Ben Lee. Earlswood all out for 148.
In reply ragley lost Lee 2 ball of the innings but Senior Swinburn and Pilko batted well against their Aussie player to get us to 45 until senior Swinburn was adjudged lbw. Warbrick didn't last long and Ben Shuttleworth joined Pilko at 43-3. The 2 youngsters batted superbly in the face of some hostile bowling to lift the score to 89 before DP was bowled round his legs by the spinner
for 29. That was the last of the wickets as Ben S batted with great confidence and skill to see us home with 20 overs left. He hit 10 4's in his 60 not out in a very accomplished knock in what seems to be his break through season having made runs already this year. Layts also scratched a few at the end as these 2 put on 61 unbroken to see ragley home. 21 points very well played to all .
