DROITWICH Spa made it a clean sweep in the Worcestershire Cricket League as all four teams secured wins.

A comfortable nine-wicket victory for the firsts moved them 24 points clear of the drop zone and extended the gap from opponents Wormelow who remain rooted to the foot of Division Two.

Spa’s second win of the summer came courtesy of a strong bowling and fielding display inspired by a miserly spell of 10 overs for just seven runs from Phil Thomas.

On a wicket offering encouragement to the seamers, the visitors took drinks at 63-4 off 25 overs before Matt Gurr returned for a second spell and took two wickets in one over.

Wormelow’s late order showed little resistance and fine catching saw them dismissed for just 88 in the 36th over.

Skipper Ian Cottrill led by example to open the batting with Martyn Davies and he stroked the ball to all parts of the ground in a classy knock of 48 not out which demoralised the opposition.

He was aided initially by Davies, who scored an aggressive 24, and latterly by the returning Stuart Bryan as Spa eased home in the 18th over.

The seconds achieved a convincing 78-run Division One win at Worcester Nomads after impressing more with the ball than the bat.

Opener Martin Keen worked hard to top score with 40 but he would have been disappointed to see several of the following batsmen throw their wickets away to spinner Anton Madzarevic who finished with 4-20 as Spa closed on 171-9.

An improved performance in the field saw the visitors make early inroads and once Josh Sinclair claimed the first of his two scalps wickets tumbled at regular intervals.

Generating decent pace and away swing, Dan Cottrill grabbed 3-20 before Joe Smith swept away the Nomads tail to claim 4-20 and clinch victory in only the 26th over.

A strong rearguard action led by veteran Simon Holliday inspired the thirds to a 63-run Division Five win over Redditch thirds.

Spa recovered from 65-5 to post 200 all out with Holliday’s 44 supplemented by knocks from youngsters Luke Cooper-Sergeant (31), Cam Moseley (27) and Owen Roberts (24).

Haleem Basharatt scored 59 for the visitors but they came up well short against the pace of Chris Parish and Anthony Redfern, who picked up two wickets apiece, while Paul Foster finished with 3-20.

A half-century from Paul Cowlard and 45 from 14-year-old Ben Foster helped the fourths to a six-wicket Division Seven success at Bromyard thirds.

Spa’s winning momentum continued on Sunday with a seven-wicket victory over Bromsgrove as they chased down 213 with half-centuries for Cottrill, Archie Fenn and Ash Fearnall.
