SUPER Andrew Sutton steamed through the Dorridge batting line-up to help Barnt Green to their first victory of the season.

Green bagged an eight-wicket away win last Saturday as they registered their first success of the new Birmingham and District Premier Division One campaign.

Sutton stole the show after Green had won the toss and elected to field.

He removed Aarib Khan before opening partner Gary Hawkins fell to Adam Hines.

Sutton then secured his five-wicket haul as Dorridge slumped to 33-6. They were eventually bowled out for just 79 in the 23rd over.

Barnt Green lost Oliver Stone for a duck when their reply started before Matthew Lamb was run out with the score at 12-2. However, Ed Pollock's unbeaten 60 and Dominic Harding's important 17 saw them home.

Captain Darrell Williams now wants his side to build on the victory when they host Kenilworth Wardens this Saturday (12noon).

He said: "It was a great feeling to get our first win and the boys put in a great performance.

"We knew the toss was going to be important and I managed to win it.

"Andy Sutton has bowled amazingly after that and put the ball in the right areas and really let the pitch do the talking. Adam Hines has also bowled brilliantly and beat the bat on numerous occasions.

"On top of that our slip catching was really good and we took five or six in the slips.

"There was still a job to be done after that and Ed Pollock batted brilliantly. The way he plays means people really fear him.

"We now want to build on the win and have a very important game against Kenilworth. Hopefully we can maintain the same standards and it can be another good weekend for us."

Green will then take on Warwickshire Academy in the Graham Williamson Trophy this Sunday (12.30pm).
