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.
