Spa finish campaign on a high note
11:00am Friday 20th September 2013 in Local
DROITWICH Spa finished a disappointing seasonona high with a three wicket win at Redditch in Worcestershire League Division One.
Chasing 196 to win, Spa had collapsed to 68-5, but captain Martyn Davies scored 50 combining with Alex Kolb (43) and Phil Thomas (32 not out) for match winning sixth and seventh wicket partnerships of 67 and 60 respectively.
Davies and Kolb showed the top-order what could be achieved in bowler friendly conditions, mixing watchful defence with good running between the wickets and selective aggression, enabling Thomas to bat with boundary hitting freedom as victory came with one over left.
Earlier, Redditch had collapsed from 120-2 to 133-7 as opener Stefan Jaglieski’s 56 looked to have been wasted by the home side's middle order.
However, an eighth wicket stand of 60 between captain Perry Derick and Tom Phelan rescued the hosts in the final 10 overs.
For Spa, Karl Goddard and Adam Crowle took two wickets apiece, while Carl Thompson claimed 3-37.
Despite the victory, Spa, who finished fourth from bottom, will reflect on a poor season.
