Leek Wootton 1XI 142 all out lost to Alcester & Ragley 1XI 143-4 by 6 wickets


Ragley lost the toss and were asked to field on a hot day at Leek Wootton. Leek Wootton opened up aggressively reaching 26 in only 4 overs. However opening bowlers Tim Jackson and George Guy stuck well to the task in hand and completely dried the runs up. This pressure told as opener Couchman charged down the wicket but missed to be bowled by Jackson for 16 with the score on 32 off 12 overs. Somerville came in at 3 and he looked in the mood to push on until a superb caught and bowled by Adam Warbrick ended his innings at 13 - score 60-2 off 17. Youngster George Guy finished a very good spell of 10 overs for only 24 unlucky not to get a wicket. Stephen Capron then claimed the 3rd wicket of the innings with an lbw of Budd for 2, then caught McKenna for 4 in the next over, bowled by Warbrick. The score at the mid-way point was 80-4. Leek Wootton then had their only meaningful partnership, with help from the extras column, the partnership was undone by a catch by Ben Lee off the bowling of Darren Turner. Opener Mike Allison, who had not been out in 74 overs batting against Ragley this season, finally fell in the 29th over caught in the gully from the bowling of Warbrick for 33. The score was now 110-6 off 33 overs. Paul Cooke was introduced into the attack at this stage and was rewarded with 2 identical wickets in 2 overs, both caught by Turner at deep mid-off. The innings was finished off in the 42nd over when Tim Jackson took a good caught at fly slip to dismiss Dave Allison for a well-made 24. Leek Wootton were all out for 142. Bowlers finished as Warbrick 3-32, Jackson 1-36, Capron 2-16, Turner 1-16, Cooke 2-9 and Guy 0-24.


In response the opening pair of Ben Lee and Dave Pilkington took to the crease looking to get Ragley off to a good start. Unfortunately Pilkington was run out backing up from a deflection by the bowler on to the stumps and then Lee was caught at cover, both had made 5. Ben Shuttleworth and Warbrick at number 3 and 4 respectively saw off the opening bowlers and soon took charge of the game. Both batsmen playing some beautiful shots on what had proved to be a tricky pitch to bat on thus far. Shuttleworth went with the score on 101 for an excellent 30 that ended a partnership of 81, aided in no small part by 30 wides. Warbrick followed 2 overs later also for 30 - and the score was 111-4 off 22 overs. Turner in his new position of 5 and Jackson added the final 32 runs in the next 6 overs - a huge 6 over mid-wicket from Turner (22 no) the highlight, Jackson finishing on 16 not out and hitting the winning runs in the 27th over . A great fielding and bowling display set us up for a comfortable win in the end.
